The Freeview retuning process has already started a couple of hours ago and by now millions of users will find that their Freeview boxes may need a few minutes to get up to scratch.
But thousands will also find out that their Freeview STBs no longer work and for them, we've brought together the best Freeview deals we could found after scouring the internet for hours.
The ATMT Digistick DVB-T sticks in any free USB port on your computer and comes with only 90 days warranty. But it costs only £9.99 from Bigpockets, has an external antenna and a superb credit card size remote control.
The Digistick is not compatible with Vista, doesn't connect straight to a television set and needs a pretty well placed aerial to get the best of it. But it is near impossible to beat at this price.
If you need one box by the end of the day, then you have just over 10 hours to get yourself this incredible Freeview recorder for little more than what you would pay for a simple Freeview recorder.
