Altius 42″ Full HD LED TV on offer at Aldi

I see that from Sunday 31st May 2015 supermarket Aldi will be offering an Altius 42″ Full HD LED TV as one of their offers at what looks a very keen price.

Altius seems to be an Aldi in house own brand, it would be interesting to know who makes these television sets for Aldi and in what country.

The blurb on the Aldi website says this 42″ TV includes a “Freeview DVB-T tuner”. It is a shame it does not contain a Freeview HD DVB-T2 tuner built in, to get the full benefit of the Full HD 1080p 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution users are going to have to connect this television up to an external HD source.

As I write this Argos are only asking and extra £20 for a Hitachi 42″ Freeview HD SMART TV. So for not very much more than the Aldi Altius TV are getting a DVB-T2 Freeview HD tuner to watch terrestrial HD television and also internet connectivity giving access to a range of SMART TV content.

UPDATE: Also consider the LG 42LB5500 42 Inch Full HD LED TV on offer at £269 at Argos.
