The Raspberry Pi TV HAT is a DVB-T2 Digital TV receiver add on for the Raspberry Pi, compatible with the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ or Raspberry Pi Zero W (and older Raspberry Pi 2 & 3 models)
The Raspberry Pi TV HAT allows you to receive digital terrestrial TV broadcast systems which includes DVB-T and DVB-T2 on a Raspberry Pi. This means that you can receive and view TV on a Raspberry Pi or create a TV server that allows you to stream received TV over a network to other devices (including PCs, tablets, smartphones (via apps), media centres and more)
The TV HAT can be used on all Raspberry Pi boards when running as a backend (server for other devices on the network), however when receiving and viewing TV directly on a Raspberry Pi it is recommended to use a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ (or older Raspberry Pi Model 3) to do this.
The TV HAT features a Sony CXD2880 TV tuner supporting DVB-T and the second generation DVB-T2 TV standards.
We’ve put together a clear and easy to follow step-by-step guide to show you exactly how to assemble, install and configure the Raspberry Pi TV HAT. We've also written a tutorial on how to get the Raspberry Pi TV HAT working with Plex!
