TV Aerial Installation Amesbury Wiltshire (SP4): It may be a good time to upgrade your satellite dish or TV antenna if you find you're missing stations or experiencing bad reception on your TV. Most likely in your part of Amesbury the strength of signal is poor when compared to other places, and all that is required is a signal booster or new TV aerial to provide you with the better reception that is required.
It may be that you have just bought a new property where no tv aerial has been fitted or it's been taken away by the previous owners. Not everyone in Amesbury is able to work at the heights involved in a DIY installation of an aerial. This is going to be the time when you need to locate a professional and trustworthy aerial and satellite installation technician.
But precisely what television systems are out there?
Freeview, Freesat or Commercial
FREEVIEW - Since the British Isles switched to digital television broadcasting in 2005, all television sets that were 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 unit, or set top box was necessary for television sets that weren't digital ready.
It is still required to have a TV antenna connected to your set top box or digital TV to receive the TV broadcasts. The sort of antenna or aerial that you have installed is extremely important in weak or poor signal areas.
By accessing Freeview you're going to get Amesbury regional programming in addition to the major national channels. It is quite possible, depending on your signal strength and exact location, to get as many as 90 channels; over seventy SD (Standard Definition) and up to fifteen HD (High Definition) with Freeview. It is also possible to listen to more than thirty digital radio stations from all over the United Kingdom.
FREESAT - Uses a satellite dish to pick up radio and TV channels so a standard antenna isn't needed. Some high-tech TV sets come complete with an in built decoder (DVB-S), however in most cases you will need a digital decoder linked with your satellite dish to watch broadcasts.
The satellite signal strength and quality level are vitally important and this is determined by the dimensions of the dish and effectiveness of the LNB (Low Noise Block) . A larger dish when correctly synchronised with a LNB can latch onto weaker signals, giving you more chance of receiving channels from different countries and stations.
It is possible in Amesbury even using the cheapest and most basic of Freesat equipment to pick up up to three hundred channels, (200+ SD, 20+ HD, 40+ Digital Radio).
Commercial TV Packages
It is quite possible to enjoy the free services of VIRGIN, SKY and BT with a similar range of channels to Freeview or Freesat without needing to pay for their premium content. All you need is an aerial or satellite dish and a decent decoder.
The premium subscription services can be chosen to match your family or business needs and charges vary in line with the chosen package. From live sports, new movie releases and live shows, to exclusive TV shows and music channels, you can choose from over 400 channels and watch box sets and movies 24 hours a day.
You will even be able to connect to different digital services through your broadband for an even greater choice of programmes and special features.
If you wish to record TV programmes to watch at your leisure, it's possible to either use the built-in hard drive of some digital decoders, or plug in an external hard drive, such as a USB flash drive, to store your favourite programme until you would like to watch it.
TV Aerial Installation Amesbury
For the finest quality reception and images, a television aerial must have a clear path to the broadcasting station. This typically means fixing it as high as possible on the roof of your house and maybe even attached to a tall pole to lift it above trees, neighbouring properties and other obstacles.
It's recommended that any aerial installation in Amesbury is done by a qualified and experienced aerial installer. The Confederation of Aerial Industries (CAI) offers accreditation and training to aerial installation technicians and companies, and gives clients peace of mind and trust in their local installation team.
Satellite Installation Amesbury
A satellite dish is just another way to receive broadcast TV signals and thus will require a clear line of vision to the transmitting satellite circling above. Any obstruction from buildings, trees and other obstacles can cause a weakened signal, interference and disruption to broadcast programmes.
The installation of a satellite dish requires perfect placement and alignment, so the technician will perform tests with specialist equipment to make sure this is done correctly. Because the alignment of the satellite dish is vital for the best system performance, the dish will then be securely fixed in place to avoid any possibility of it moving in the wind.
What Does Aerial Installation Entail?
Any type of installation, satellite dish or television antenna will require a site survey so that the installers can plan the job. This will lay out the specifics of any cable entry points and the route the cabling will have to travel from the television antenna/dish to the final destination on the inside of property. The on-site survey is very important if you require more than room to be supplied with a TV. After the preliminary survey you will be provided with an accurate estimate from the aerial installation company.
Choosing a local aerial installation company in the Amesbury area will mean that they've got the knowledge and experience of any signal issues and other problems linked to your area. With this local knowledge they will have the equipment that ensures optimum signal clarity and reception.
The signal strength will be verified as soon as the dish or aerial is placed in position. The aerial or dish will then be given some small, final tuning adjustments to obtain the optimum signal strength on the testing equipment. Cabling will be run and attached to your home and the entry point for the cables must be drilled and sealed.
Finally a connection is made to your digital decoder box or television set and the setup and first time installation of the entire system is made. The installation process is finalized when all the Television and radio channels have been searched for and stored on your device.
Accreditations and Professional Organisations
Customers in Amesbury can gain peace of mind by picking an aerial installer who is certified by a trade association within the aerial industry. As already mentioned, the CAI provides City and Guilds courses and offer accreditation to its members and ensures aerial industry standards are satisfied.
An evaluation process is conducted on all aerial installation companies who are members of the CAI. This provides clients with confidence in the expertise and dependability of the installation team to complete the work to the highest standards. Members of the CAI must also guarantee any aerial installation for at least twelve months.
TrustMark, the Government authorised scheme, is another method of seeking out the best tv aerial installers in Amesbury, or anyplace in the United Kingdom. When you observe the TrustMark logo for signal reception and the home entertainment industry it means that the aerial installers must already be a registered member of the CAI, because if this is not the case the TrustMark logo can't be used. The extra layer of consumer confidence this service affords to a company showcases their professional, competent and safe handling of any a satellite dish or TV antenna installation.

TV Aerial Booster Amesbury
It can be infuriating trying to watch TV programmes in a low signal area. A poor TV signal can cause pixelated pictures, intermittent sound and ghosting. The installation of a television aerial booster will amplify your signal to a level suitable for an optimum viewing experience.
For the very best outcome it is advised to install a TV signal booster as close to your aerial as possible. The reasoning behind this is that you want to maximise the signal near to its source, therefore preventing additional losses through the cable.
A competent Amesbury aerial installation specialist will be able to verify your current signal level and provide a suitable booster to make sure you receive the best possible TV signal. You might live in a block of flats in Amesbury with a shared antenna or satellite dish, in which case it might be more convenient to have an interior boosting device fitted. If this is suggested then a powered signal booster is installed near to the entry point of your TV cable to increase your strength of the signal.
