Raspberry Pi TV HAT
This add-on board lets you receive digital DVB-T2 TV streams on your Raspberry Pi to view them or stream them over a network to other devices
To get started you'll need:
- Any 40-pin Raspberry Pi (including Pi Zero and Zero W, provided they have headers soldered)
- A suitable aerial to receive broadcast TV (not provided)
We've put together a downloadable step-by-step guide to Getting started with the TV HAT, which walks you through the complete setup process.
