What does "Full HD Ready" actually mean?

Please don't confuse Freeview HD for "Full HD Ready", these are not the same.

Please don't confuse Freeview HD for  Full HD Ready , these are
Published on by on UK Free TV
A television set with the "Full HD Ready" marking means that the display is capable of displaying 1080 lines at 24, 25 and 30 frames per second (not using "interlaced" mode). This usually means that the resolution of the screen will be 1920x1080, about 2 megapixels. This is the "Full HD" bit.

It also means that the display device has a suitable digital input, such as HDMI or DVI to provide the pictures to display, this is the "Ready" bit.

It DOES NOT mean that the set can pick up Freeview HD, Freesat HD, Sky HD or Virgin Media HD without a set-top box.

You will also see "HD Ready". This is as above, but the number of lines displayed will be at least 720 (usually 1280x720, 0.87 megapixels, 2.5 times standard resolution).

You can buy television sets with Freesat HD built in. These sets connect directly to a dish and display the Freesat HD channels (currently BBC One HD, BBC HD, Channel 4 HD and ITV1 HD).

You can now buy Freeview HD sets. These will display BBC One HD, BBC HD, Channel 4 (or S4C) HD and ITV1 HD just by connecting the set to an aerial, but only in areas with Freeview HD.
