Finding a Freeview box with both Netflix and Amazon Prime can be a very difficult task. In this instance of combining Netflix, Freeview and Amazon Prime, the best option found to date is to purchase a set-top box to cover Freeview and Netflix. Then an additional Amazon TV Fire Stick may need to be connected to the TV for a small cost. This will provide access to Amazon Prime Video.
Here’s a round-up of the five best Freeview boxes: budget options to comprehensive home entertainment systems.
Combining Freeview, Netflix and Amazon Prime will provide any TV lovers with more content than hours in the day to watch it.
Whether a huge fan of Ozark, The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, Premier League football or Love Island, with a set up comprised of free-to-air channels, Netflix originals and Prime movies, viewers are sure to be satisfied.
So, let’s take a look at the best Freeview boxes with Netflix and Amazon Prime.
