Freeview is a Television service in Europe and can be received with a set top box or a TV receiver so the way your question is worded, the answer is no. Just because the TV is digital does not mean it is freeview.

Do all new digital televisions have freeview?

Freeview is the digital terrestrial television service for the UK and is replacing analog broadcasting. The changeover is being phased and will be complete by 2012. Any UK television on sale should have a digital receiver incorporated now. Although there may be one or two exceptions, no reputable dealer will stock televisions that do not have a digital receiver. The same should be the case worldwide wherever a digital conversion has happened or is happening. But... There will be some very rare exceptions so make sure you ask the question before handing over cash to the salesman.

The television has only an aerial connection can you still get freeview?

Freeview is the digital terrestrial television service for the UK. It is replacing analog services which will be switched off by 2012. To receive Freeview, either a television with a digital receiver is needed (most telvisions sold from 2008 have a digital tuner) or a separate Freeview receiver is needed. Most Freeview receivers have video and audio outputs which connect to AV inputs on the television. If a television has no AV inputs at all, then a Freeview receiver that outputs the decoded signal on the RF connector will be needed. Not all digital receivers have this function so it is important to check before buying. Before buying, ask the question "Does this receiver output its decoded signal as an analog RF signal?" It is not unknown for a salesman to say yes even if they don't know the answer. Remember that if you have asked the question and explained that it is vital to have the facility, you are entitled to a full refund if it turns out not to be the case. Better still, ask to study the manual before parting with cash.

Many HD televisions include a Freeview receiver but is is only in 2010 onwards that they began to include an HD Freeview receiver.

As far as SD channels are concerned, don't expect to see any noticeable improvement in quality.

How do you know if your tv is digital?

"Digital" is a very vague term for televisions. A telelvision can be called digital if any part of the signal path uses digital data. Therefore, any plasma or LCD telelvision is digital as they all use digital signals in generating an image. The question probably refers to digital inputs. If it has a digital receiver built in, for terrestrial digital broadcasts (UK Freeview, for example) or has a digital cable decoder, then it can be called digital. In these cases, the manual will point out that it is a digital TV. If the television has HDMI or DVI inputs, both of these are digital inputs and it is therefore a "digital" television. A better definition of "digital" in this question would get a better answer.
