TV Aerials Installed / Repaired

A new TV aerial installation is not something you often need.  We understand that it can be hard to work out what you need and how much you should pay to have it installed.

It really helps to use a reputable company that will give you impartial advice, rather than recommending the most expensive aerial by default.  We offer you honest, practical advice on exactly what you need and safely install  it for you.

New TV Aerial Installation

We specialise in choosing the right aerial for your location (anywhere in the West Midlands).  It goes without saying that our expert installers will always fit your new aerial in the best position to give you a clear TV picture. Typically a wall or chimney mounting is best.

TV Aerial Services We Offer

If you find that your TV picture is fuzzy, or you can’t receive as many channels as you used to, you may find that your TV aerial is broken and needs to be repaired or replaced.

It may just be that your aerial has become loose, or perhaps it has suffered damage or deterioration.  Whatever is causing your poor TV signal, we can investigate it for you and provide the best solution.  Sometimes it is possible to fix your existing equipment cheaper than installing replacement aerials. If an aerial repair is not possible, we’ll install a high-quality aerial replacement for you.

If you have an old aerial that has become loose and is noisy when it is windy, we can secure it for you or even take it down if you have changed to satellite or cable TV and no longer require it.

It would be pointless explaining exactly what a digital TV aerial’s performance is – as described by manufactures technical information – as most people would not understand it.

For example: Frequency Range, Gain, Beam Width H/V, Front to Back Ratio, impedance, Wind Load and Group. Below is the basic information in layman’s terms:

TV aerials come in all shapes and sizes and prices. We have installed thousands of aerials of all types over many years. One of the most important factors to an aerial is the wind factor, some of the larger more expensive aerials tend to have a greater wind factor than more moderately priced aerials available on the market.

It is true that the bigger the aerial and the more elements, the greater signal gain. However strong signal gain TV aerials (high gain aerials – as they are known) are not always necessary. Since the onset of digital TV, most areas will have been supplied with main or relay transmitters that will supply enough output signal for most locations.

Through years of experience, it has become clear that the best aerials should be streamlined, with low wind resistance. If however you needed a strong signal because of distance from a transmitter, or distribution to more than one TV, then a masthead amplifier would be the best choice instead of a large, wind catching aerial.

Most aerials now, if installed correctly and optimised with a signal detection meter will provide good reception for digital free view and all of the HD channels.

All aerials are made for internal or external usage though some of the larger type aerials are not easy to manoeuvre in a loft for the correct positioning to maximise signal detection. Therefore there is no such thing as a loft aerial.

Whilst moderate to good reception can be gained from a loft, the signal is stronger when installed outside on a chimney or gable end.

Both BT Vision and Freeview use the digital signal pathway for terrestrial TV reception. Therefore once a digital aerial is installed and you have a good digital signal you have the availability of both the above suppliers.
For Radio we also offer the installation of Dab and FM Aerials these can also be integrated into you TV distribution system around the home.
Over the years, we’ve been asked a lot of questions about digital TV and aerials.  We found the switchover to digital television confused people particularly.

If you have a niggling question, perhaps it has already been answered on our Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.) page.
