TV Aerial Installation Shoreham-by-Sea West Sussex (BN43): Lousy reception or missing channels on your TV could be an indication that it is a good time to replace your current TV antenna or satellite dish. Maybe in your part of Shoreham-by-Sea the signal strength is weak in comparison with other places, and all that's required is a new antenna or signal booster to give you the improved reception needed.
It might be the case that your new home did not have a satellite dish or aerial installed by the building company. The setting up of this type of equipment entails, in most cases, working at heights and not all property owners in Shoreham-by-Sea are prepared to tackle this sort of do-it-yourself work. This is the time when you need to track down a reliable satellite or aerial installation technician.
There are many systems and deals available, but which one meets your needs?
Freeview, Freesat or Commercial
FREEVIEW TV - Since the UK changed to digital broadcasting in 2005, all TV sets sold from 2008 onwards had to be digital ready and feature an inbuilt digital decoder. In order to receive the digital programs a digital decoder, or set top box was needed for TV's that were not digital compliant.
Even when you have a set top box or suitable digital television, you still need a decent TV aerial to receive the broadcast channels. The type of aerial or antenna that you have installed is especially important in low signal areas.
By accessing Freeview you'll get regional programming for the Shoreham-by-Sea area as well as the principal national channels. Contingent on your specific location and signal strength, there are over 70 Standard Definition (SD) and up to 15 High Definition (HD) channels available. It's also possible to play over thirty digital radio stations from all around Great Britain.
FREESAT - Uses a satellite dish to pick up TV and radio broadcasts so a normal aerial is not needed. If your television seems to have a DVB-S connection, you might not need to have a separate satellite digital decoder to pick up radio and television programmes.
The dimensions of satellite dish and the performance of its LNB (Low Noise Block - the attachment on the arm of the dish) are crucial for receiving satellite programmes. You'll be able to tune in to more free satellite channels from different broadcasters and countries by putting in a bigger dish and an LNB with a higher gain to tune into weaker TV signals.
A standard Freesat dish and box installation in Shoreham-by-Sea is capable of receiving more than 20 HD channels, over 200 SD channels and approximately 40 digital radio stations.
Commercial TV Packages
Subscription and commercial based services, such as BT, VIRGIN and SKY, all include a free service comparable to Freesat or Freeview where a subscription or viewing card isn't required. All that is required is a TV antenna or satellite dish and an acceptable decoder.
The premium subscription services can be chosen to match your family or business requirements and costs fluctuate in line with the level of subscription. From concerts, sports events and new movie releases, to exclusive TV shows and music channels, you can pick from over four hundred channels and watch TV box sets and movies 24 hours a day if you wish.
Most commercial providers additionally offer streaming content using your affiliated or independent broadband.
Whatever service you choose, commercial, Freesat or Freeview, there are options available to record straight to your digital decoder box, or to an external hard drive, to watch at a later date.
TV Aerial Installation Shoreham-by-Sea
A television aerial needs to have as clear a path to the broadcasting antenna as possible in order to get the best quality signal. If your property's roof isn't high enough to enable the aerial to clear neighbouring obstacles, trees and properties, it may have to be fitted to a tall pole to make sure it's situated high enough.
It is generally suggested that any aerial installation in Shoreham-by-Sea is done by a qualified aerial installer. The Confederation of Aerial Industries offers training and certification to aerial installation companies and technicians, and offers clients a good level of trust in their local installation team.
Satellite Dish Installation Shoreham-by-Sea
A satellite dish is just another form of way to receive broadcast signals and thus will still need a clear line of vision to the transmitting station. An improperly positioned satellite dish can weaken a signal by being partly obstructed by buildings, trees and other structures that inhibit the reception.
The satellite dish installation requires accurate alignment, so the aerial technician will carry out tests with technical equipment to ensure this is done correctly. By fine tuning the alignment of the satellite dish to receive maximum signal strength, the dish can then be solidly affixed to avoid any movement because of wind or other issues.
What Aerial Installation Entails
An on-site survey will be done before any kind of installation process to allow the technicians to put together a plan of action. This will include a routing plan for the cables from the dish or TV aerial and the optimal entry point for the cables into your house. The on-site survey is vital if you need more than one room to be supplied with a TV. At the end of the on-site survey you will be presented with a precise quote from the aerial installation team.
The knowledge and familiarity with any signal issues and problems in the Shoreham-by-Sea area, that a locally based aerial installer has, will be priceless. Their knowledge of any signal issues in the area means they're able to provide the correct equipment to enable maximum signal strength reception.
The signal will be tested once the dish or TV antenna is fixed to your house. The aerial or dish will then be given some final, small tuning adjustments to acquire the best signal on the testing equipment. The aerial cable will then be laid and fitted along its pre-determined route, in through the cable entry point and ended at the required position in your property.
The final installation stage will be the connection to your decoder box or TV and the setting up and testing of the entire system. The installation process is concluded when all of the TV and radio channels have been searched for and stored on your device.
Accreditations and Professional Bodies
Clients in Shoreham-by-Sea can gain peace of mind by choosing an aerial installer who is trained and certified by a trade organisation within the aerial industry. The CAI, as mentioned earlier, ensures its members uphold and observe industry standards by providing Diploma Level training and professional accreditation.
Any CAI member has been vetted and checked before being permitted to join. Clients can have the belief and confidence that any company using the CAI logo operate to highest possible standards within the sector and are fully qualified for any aerial installation task. Members of the Confederation of Aerial Industries must also guarantee any installation work for no less than 12 months.
The Government approved Trustmark service is another means by which to search out trusted aerial and satellite dish installers in the Shoreham-by-Sea area. Only members of the CAI may get this extra approval and accreditation for signal reception and the home entertainment industry from TrustMark. The scheme provides an extra layer of trust for consumers and gives them the knowledge that they are employing competent, professional and safe contractors.
