What is the difference between Freeview and Freesat?
A – Both are TV services. Freeview is received through a TV Aerial and Freesat is received via a satellite dish and is a good choice if you live in a poor Freeview reception area. Please call for further advice.
Do I need a digital aerial?
A – There isn’t such a thing as a ‘digital aerial’ it is called a wideband aerial which helps receive digital TV and radio programmes. If you have an old analogue aerial you may need a wideband aerial to help distribute new digital broadcasts around your home. We can happily advise you on the type of aerial system required for your area.
In some cases a new aerial is not required; it could be a small fault like a damaged cable or faulty connection for example.
We can fault find, install TV aerial systems and can service and repair existing systems to work like new again.
We are happy to give advice over the telephone if you need further guidance and can come out and leave you with a free quotation if you wish.
