There’s no better way to unwind at the end of a working day, than watching your favourite television shows. If you have children, you’ll be amazed at how much they can learn from the programs they watch. That’s why our televisions are so important, they’re far more than just a provider of entertainment. It’s important, therefore, to have the best picture and sound quality that you can. That’s why you don’t’ need a second best, right? If you’re disappointed with the picture you receive, don’t splash out on a new television. An aerial fitter may be able to make a huge improvement by installing a new TV aerial and cable.

There are many reasons that your digital TV reception may be suffering, from weather conditions, to cable wear and tear, but one of the reasons could be the itself. Professional TV aerial installation can overcome all of these problems.

What is the digital switchover?

The digital switchover was completed in October 2012, but your television, and your TV reception, could still be feeling the effects today. The change from analogue to digital signals is allowing you to broadcast more stations. The viewing public has been left with much greater viewing choice, whether they watch TV through satellite installations or via a digital Freeview receiver. Many households have also found that they’ve been left with a poor reception, or a reduced TV service that’s unable to receive all the channels it should. This is particularly true for homes who have old aerials and cables, or who share a communal television signal.

How do I know if I need a new TV aerial?

One of the most obvious signs that you need a is that the picture will suffer from interference, or it may keep dropping out. This always seems to happen at the crucial moment in any program that you’re watching, and can be incredibly frustrating. You shouldn’t have to put up with that, and a TV aerial engineer can put an end to that problem for ever.

Another sign that an aerial fitter may be required, is if you aren’t receiving a full range of television channels. This is another indication of poor signal strength due to TV aerial or coaxial cable problems.

 How can I find a trusted aerial fitter

A professional and reputable aerial fitter will be able to do everything from finding the correct position for your aerial, drill holes in your masonry, install the coaxial cable, split the signal and you can use various TV point connections. It involves working at heights, as well as making precise measurements, so it’s not something that should be attempted yourself.

The best way to ensure that your TV aerial engineer is trusted and experienced, is to find one that is registered with either the RDI-LB (Regional Digital Installer Licensing Body) or CAI (Confederearion of Aerial Installers). Both these bodies carry out criminal record checks on applicants, and ensure that they are trained, insured and have the necessary experience. The CAI is the main industry body and the regularly assess their members to ensure they meet the highest standards .You can find their members at
