    I'm looking for a device for my TV that does both freeview hd and will also
    play/stream video from a network hard drive. Couldn't find anything on
    google. Is there such a device that will work in the UK?

    Do you mean something like my Humax HD fox-T2 Freeview HD receiver, that
    that allows me to connect to my upstairs PC via a Wireless Network and I can
    play and watch videos stored on it on my main TV in the lounge.

    I think you'll find because the TV manufacturers failed to make a decent
    standard for streaming, your mileage will vary according to what TV set
    you buy, whether it actually works as the manufacturer claims it does.

    More often than not, it doesn't work, and the ASA etc. allow the
    manufacturers to get way with their claims that streaming video to the
    set works - when it actually doesn't

    I suggest looking into online web forums for sets you have in mind, and
    how much work it takes to get a specific item... computer or hard drive,
    to stream data to the TV.

    Hell, TV manufacturers failed to standardise the frame rate for HD, so we
    still have the bullshit of PAL / NTSC releases, made worse when you make
    video and send it to a friend abroad.

    The manufacturers are lazy bastards.
