    Yes. Lots.

    Many LGs have a satellite tuner and Freesat EPG support.

    Thank you very much L1011. I was looking at this one below. It's for a kitchen

    LG 28TL510S 28" Smart HD Ready LED TV

    So, it would be enough to plug in the two coaxes, one from the irish aerial and one from the satellite, right? No boxes needed?

    Whats the difference between freeview and freesat?

    Thanks again

    That TV has both types of tuners so you should be fine.

    Freeview is the UK terrestrial system; you won't get it in most of ROI.

    Another option might be the Vestel tv's, Walker and Nordmende, I have a 24in Walker in the kitchen, Saorview and UK channels in one list, downside is the satellite epg is now and next, rather than full epg.

    I've 2 Panasonic TV's both have Freesat/Saorview built in, the Saorview channels can be organised in order of your choice, They ususally start at Ch 800's
