We use satellite, which would be perfect for U.K. use, although we only go camping in the South of France, so have to use a 1m Dish.
For U.K. use a 35cm Dish is more than adequate, although rather than a Dish, a small Flat Panel satellite antenna will do the job, plenty on eBay at not silly money.
As for the receiver I would go for the Sab Titan Micro, an almost pocket sized unit, than can also work as a PVR, the Titan Micro although not officially a Freesat receiver will pick up all the Freesat channels and more besides.
As for TV we use a Cello 15Ē LED had that for years but itís a good un, with HDMI input.
Sounds are taken care of by a pair of Aldi RF wireless headphones, I canabalised the base stations, and put all the gubbins into a plastic box, the size of a match box.
We now have a spare head phone transmitter as the one transmitter will work for as many headphones as you wish, and the actual modified transmitter is a fraction of the size of the original unit.
We just use alkaline batteries in the headphones instead of the supplied two AAA rechargeableís.
