Hi Rosemary,

Yes absolutely. I have done that with my last three TVs and only just discovered last week that my aerial isn’t actually even connected to the port on the wall. The caveat is that you’ll only be able to get live TV via a Freeview device (I don’t think the app allows for live streaming).

Kind regards,
