Geoff: Freeview is digital terrestrial TV received via an aerial, it is not an internet streaming service. If you connect an aerial to your smart TV and look for automatic tuning in the settings, it should be able to tune in all available channels.

In addition to what StevensOnln1 has said, you can stream SOME of the channels using Freeview Play which you should find in your Smart TV's apps (unless it's an older model that won't update to include it). Other than that you can use the various Player from some of the Broadcasters - iPlayer from the BBC, ITV Hub, All4, My5, UKTVPlay being the main ones. Visit Freeview | All your favourite TV shows, all in one place and all for free for more information.

In terms of reception of Freeveiw with an aerial, you may be in Horndean but this "Light" Transmitter only broadcasts the PSB multiplexes however depending on your location you may be able to receive the main Rowridge transmitter which broadcasts all multiplexes. Put your details into the boxes on Freeview | All your favourite TV shows, all in one place and all for free corporate/platform-management for what you may be able to receive with the relevant aerial.
