How can I connect my FreeviewPlus Smart TV or box to my broadband?

Watch this short video about the 3 ways to get your FreeviewPlus device connected to broadband!

FreeviewPlus HT Connect

There are 3 options to connect your broadband


All FreeviewPlus Smart TVs and set top boxes have built-in WIFI, so a WIFI connection would be the easiest way to connect your FreeviewPlus Smart TV or box to your home broadband.


If you’d like a more robust connection for streaming (especially if you have multiple devices going online at the same time in your home), connecting the FreeviewPlus Smart TV or box directly to your router via an Ethernet cable would typically work better.

Powerline Adapters

If your router is nowhere near your TV or box, you can use a pair of powerline adapters to turn any power outlet in your home into an internet outlet. 

One adapter connects to your router via Ethernet cable, then plugs into a power socket; the other plugs into a power socket near your TV or box, then connects to your TV or box via an Ethernet cable.  Streaming data can then travel from the router to your TV via the powerlines in your house.

You can pick up Ethernet cables and powerline adapters at your local electronics retailer.

Regardless of how you choose to connect to your broadband, always check the manufacturer’s user manual for set up instructions.
