Hi Angela, Good to hear that! I only recently discovered that I could get AD on free-to-air TV over here! It was a happy discovery to be sure! I notice that my wife who can see leaves AD on now when she watches and has no probs doing so either which is cool!

We don't have AD on our home channels here in Southern Ireland as yet so was interested. A tip though to look out for when shopping again for a telly.

This way you will get on any programme on which it is available. You don’t get the spoken channel names etc that you get with something like the netgem but at least it’s in there from the start you don’t need to buy an extra box.

I mean when you turn on a Sony or Panasonic what then? Is AD automatically spoken all the time it's available or do you have to say enable such as I have to do before starting to watch/listen on my present setup? Is the advantage of such as say Sony for local terrestrial stations only? Is it possible to elaborate? By the way I'm enjoying my AD experience from the beeb and ITV on FTA!
