A wall adapter as TV aerial ?

Saw this online a couple of days ago and had to try it out!

We’re redoing the livingroom at the moment and part of which was bringing out a TV from a bedroom. We’ve never had TV service while living here and have zero experience of digital channel reception at the house.

TV is a Philips 37PF5322D/37
A self repaired junk find, dating to 2008.
The caps in the power supply section were dried out, from having been located next to a large heatsink. I replaced those and also a large burnt out diode. The chirping sound plus no screen output problems were fixed.
Since then, 8 years ago, it’s been used for playing retro games on or watching streamed movies from a PC.
