limited programmes on tv compared to laptop

I am staying with family and they have an old flat screen tv. They have Freeview and a box. They are with Sky.

I watched an episode of Great British Car Journeys, channel 4, on my laptop and was going to watch the rest of series and decided to view them on the family tv but I could not find any on the family television.

I thought there would be no difference between my laptop and their tv.

what i think you may have is a tv that will only ever show live tv via the box as its fully via the ariel
you need internet or cable connection to get programs not live
