Hi,

Can someone please tell me when Portugal switched over to digital TV? We've just bought an apartment in "Paradise" and are moving out with our cats early 2019.

I lived in Portugal for 4 years from 2006 and whilst there bought a portable TV in 2008 which has been stored in a friend's garage (I knew I'd be back one day!!). Will it work? Will it just get Portuguese channels? Help!!

Any comments most appreciated.
Thanks
Lynne

April 2009.

You will need a cheap TDT box that has suitable output connections (e.g. SCART, HDMI, RF dependant upon your TV), and possibly a new aerial.

You will only get the main Portuguese channels - just 7 of them.

To get more you will need to subscribe to an internet or satelite package. Even so the number of English channels is very small.

Technology moved on a little - TV went digital in Portugal in April 2009. I would say ditch the old TV and treat yourself to a new one.
