How much does TV Aerial installation cost?

The cost for your TV Aerial installation can vary depending on your home or business if you need an interior or exterior installation, and time spent. We provide affordable rates and free quotes for all our services. Call us to get your estimate.

How long does a TV Aerial last?

We install high-quality, name-brand TV Aerials that we would trust to use in our own homes. As such, you can expect your TV Aerial to last anywhere between 10 and 20 years. But some customers have reported using the same Aerial for over 30 years without interruption.

What do I do if my TV Aerial stops working?

If you’re not getting signals, it could be due to various reasons like obstructions from trees or other objects or damage to your Aerial. To address these issues, we suggest reaching out to our knowledgeable team. We can work quickly to find a solution for your home or business.

What TV Aerial do I need for my area?

Because properties, neighbourhoods, and other aspects can influence your preferred Aerial, the best way to find out which is right for you is to schedule a consultation with our team. During our free estimate, we can provide you with all the information you need to make a decision about which TV Aerial you should select.

Which TV Aerial is best?

There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to TV Aerials. The Aerial we recommend to you will be based on your needs, budget, property, and location. We strive to provide our customers with the best possible experience to get access to high-definition channels without interruption.

What TV Aerial do I need for Freeview?

To receive Freeview, you will need an Aerial that supports Freeview. Most Aerials do support Freeview, but the signal may not be the strongest or most reliable. We will help you choose a high-performance Aerial that allows you to watch uninterrupted Freeview with the best possible signal strength.

How do TV Aerials work?

TV Aerials consist of metal components that are directly influenced by electromagnetic waves, causing tiny electrical currents to be generated within the antenna. The signal is then amplified by either the television set-top box or certain Smart TVs, which subsequently select the pertinent information containing both the visual and auditory aspects of the broadcast. To optimize signal strength, parallel rod structures and other similar features are utilized. It is important to ensure that TV aerials are installed properly to achieve excellent picture quality.

Can I install a TV Aerial myself?

Although it’s feasible to set up a TV antenna by yourself, it’s strongly suggested to hire a skilled installer. Our team uses professional tools and techniques, such as signal meters, to save several hours of the installation process where you would be trying to locate the signal and adjust the antenna. This will ensure that you obtain optimal reception on every TV channel.

We also strongly recommend hiring a professional to minimize the serious risk of you climbing onto your roof to install your Aerial. Roofs are incredibly dangerous. It’s best to leave this work to our professional team.

Can I boost my TV Aerial signal?

There are many tricks and techniques you will find on the internet about how to boost your signal. Some may work for others but are not guaranteed to work for your specific setup. Adjusting positions, changing to a different Aerial, getting better cables, and avoiding interference from other cables and electronics can help.

For the best chances of getting the best signal, contact our team to have a professional technician examine and boost your setup.

When should I get my TV Aerial checked by a professional?
