Freeview Installation in Dorset, Somerset and Devon

Town and Country Aerials Ltd have built up a large amount of knowledge and experience in Freeview digital TV installation & reception, having helped many customers through the digital switchover in Dorset and surrounding areas.

The four channels many of us grew up with have blossomed into the vast choice that we have today; this is only possible because of the change in the way that channels are now transmitted. Digital streams of data use the airwaves so much more efficiently, however all televisions need to be digital or have an external "digibox" to convert the signal.

Digital TV has also brought us Freeview HD with wonderful high definition picture quality. Whatever kind of program you like to watch, your reception is all down to receiving a high quality signal in the first place, so please do not be tempted to overlook that all important aerial. Although modern aerials are designed for digital TV reception, older aerials can still work satisfactorily. There is no such thing as a digital aerial: it's true, despite what some less scrupulous companies may say! The key thing to remember is that the aerial and cable must be in good order and all other components such as boosters and splitters must be fully screened.

To enable good quality Freeview reception the aerial in particular must:

  • Have as good a line of sight to the transmitter as possible
  • Be accurately aligned using the correct meter
  • Be securely mounted, weatherproof and safe
  • Have all connections correctly terminated
  • Use double screened coax cable of CAI approved standard
  • All other components must be fully screened
  • The finished job needs to be tested and all equipment tuned and demonstrated

Freezing or pixelation of the picture, missing channels and broken up audio - are all classic signs of signal problems. Please feel free to call us to get helpful advice or to book a visit to check your system.
