TV on the beach and campsite

In the summer of 2019 we were frequently visited and called by people who had little or no reception from TV on the beach, or at their campsite, in the Netherlands.
They were used to watching TV with their DVB-T receiver, with an (indoor or outdoor) antenna.

Namely, in July 2019, KPN migrated the last provinces to the new “T2” standard. Since then, changes / improvements have been made to the old Terrestrial (ether) Digitenne network, which meant that a modern DVB-T2 TV receiver also had to be used.

So many people had missed this, and came to us for:

  • Or a new DVB-T2 TV receiver
  • Or for a suitable, very powerful outdoor antenna, exactly what you want, especially at a beach location: the YAGINX + (range: 80 km).
    Rebox has been the distributor of Funke Digital for the various indoor and outdoor antenna models since the middle of last year.
  • Or for both.

The DVB-T2 receiver
They come in two flavors.

  • A receiver that we have developed and delivered for KPN and Online subscribers. So you get a receiver from them when taking out a subscription.
  • And the RE-2400DVBT2 FTA receiver.
    So this is a Free To Air receiver, with which you can watch NPO1, 2, 3 and the regional channel for free: and for the free radio channels: NPO Radio 1, NPO Radio 2, NPO 3FM, NPO Radio 4, NPO Radio 5, NPO Soul & Jazz, FunX.

Regarding the RE-2400DVBT2 FTA option;
Owners of a beach house or a pitch at a campsite in the Netherlands mainly indicated that:

We like to be outside as much and for as long as possible, and TV is the least important, certainly in this period.
But … we do like it if we can watch the News or News Hour in the evening.
So because it’s just an “occasional program,” something like this shouldn’t cost  “an arm and a leg”

Well, with a RE-2400DVBT2 FTA TV receiver plus a YAGINX + antenna, you can watch and listen to the free TV and radio channels, so you have no subscription costs, and therefore only a one-time purchase of the receiver and antenna. And the price is very modest!
