Strictly speaking there are no such things as Freeview aerials, Freeview is a essentially a branded range of digital signals which use the same frequency bands as analogue signals. Therefore an aerial often sold as an ‘analogue’ antenna will pick up Freeview signals.
What is usually meant by the term ‘Freeview Aerial’ is an aerial that is digitally compatible and more often than not ‘wideband’.
In order to receive the full range of signals wideband aerials are used. As the name suggests wideband aerials are able to receive the full TV bandwidth and are capable of receiving all the analogue and Freeview transmissions.
Also ensuring an aerial is digitally compatible is the use of screened components to reduce the ingress of interference.
