Buying Guide: 10 best Freeview HDTVs in the UK today

  The arrival of DVB-T2 – or Freeview HD, as it's more commonly known – earlier this year was a watershed moment. As well as bringing the first free-to-air HDTV channels available to all of us – eventually – the start of Freeview HD broadcasting also consigned a generation of flatpanel TVs to the dustbin. Cue a raft of cheap 'n' cheerful set top boxes rushed out ahead of the World Cup, though if you'd rather retain the all-in-one experience you'll be wanting a plasma or LCD TV with a built-in Freeview HD tuner. With universal coverage set for the end of 2011, the process of weeding-out sets without Freeview HD tuners inside has begun – and we don't expect there will be a single no-Freeview HD TV left on sale by the end of this year. Here's the best of the first crop.
