Important notes on DVB-T reception:
Please ask your dealer whether DVB-T is available in your region. DVB-T reception is depending on location and might be impaired by thick or steel-enforced walls, and high neighboring buildings. In such environments, an outdoor / roof-top DVB-T antenna is required. Mobile reception of DVB-T, e.g. in a car or train, is in general not possible.
