    Has anyone fitted a flat screen television in roof of converted berlingo or similar

    Hi

    I haven't been on the site for a while, but I would like to have a television fitted on the roof of my converted Berlingo. I would probably need a Sky box because I go to Scotland etc a lot and there is no reception there.
    I don't know much about Sky etc so any information would be appreciated.

    There are numerous roofmounted TV's with flip down screens that you can buy, running on 12v's. As for sky you would need a mobile satellite dish and a suitable receiver box, have a look here
    Better a rainy day on the hill than a sunny day in the office!

        Yes, although you will still need a freeview box to pick up normal telly unless the TV unit you buy has freeview built in. I think I am right in saying that analogue telly has been switched off completely now.

        Of course the cheap option is just to get a portable DVD player if you are not fussed about live telly and just want a bit of entertainment.

          Television fitted in roof

          Hi again

          I only like to watch ordinary TV soaps etc so would need freeview. Thanks very much for your help.

            Surely then FREESAT is the way to go. Set up is just like Skye, but as the name implies it is free. Certainly if Skye is receivable then freesat is too. I know that I am receiving freesat programmes with my old Skye dish without retuning. It is possible to receive freesat programmes on an unregistered Skyebox, but a lot of channels which cannot be watched show up too.
            I have Freeview also, in my Kitchen. There are not as many channels as on freesat. The number of freeview channels available varies enormously depending on accessible aerials in the vicinity anyway.
            Of course while TVs with freeview built in are readily available. Freesat reception does need a freesat box.
            As far as I am aware freesat signals are available just about everywhere.
