MINI DVB-T USB DONGLE WATCH HIGH QUALITY DIGITAL TV & RADIO

Does anyone know if this widely advertised  in the UK  dongle  is any good ?  its £25  and `appears` to access numerous tv channels including UK  ones  anywhere in the world ??     does it really work ?  and all for only £25 ??

Thanks Keith.. seems we might give it a go.. at the moment in Turkey we subscribe to `View UK TV abroad` for £6.50  per month  which is excellent value and  90% of the time good watchable quality, with i player , 4od, and itv player.. which are great getting  over the 2 hour difference in Turkey. Also we have a `sky package` out there where we share our neighbours 2 metre sky dish  for 450 lira a year ( strictly for the football channels )  so all in all we are ok in turkey tv wise.. but always looking to save money so this `dongle` could be a useful `add on`  :-)

I should confirm that I get UK Freeview on mine here in the UK. When I am in Turkey, I would not be able to get Freeview from the UK.

Just make sure it doesn't mean that you can access worldwide TV FROM THE UK

I have not heard of one pf these working in multiple countries - I may be wrong though
