Then this morning, we saw Trevor of AtLast putting a tiny TV antenna on the roof of his boat, and he told me how good it is. We borrowed it from him, and within a few minutes we had FreeView channels set up, and we were watching live TV! It's a tiny device, and it may not work well in some places around the canal system, but it'll be fine for those times when we're at Yelvertoft.
As soon as we'd tested Trevor's, we ordered one! No more getting the kids to record stuff for us, and having to watch it months later!
