TV Aerial Installation Ross-on-Wye Herefordshire (HR9): If you find you're being affected by a poor signal to your TV it could be time to look at updating your TV antenna or satellite dish. Most likely all that is needed is a signal booster with a stronger gain or new TV aerial to make the most of the feeble signal associated with some areas of Ross-on-Wye.
It could be that you've just bought a new property where no aerial or satellite dish has been fitted or that it has been taken down by the previous owners. Most folks in Ross-on-Wye are uneasy at the very idea of working at the heights that are associated with replacing and installing a new television aerial. This is the time when you need to track down a professional and reliable aerial and satellite installation technician.
But what sort of television system do you favour?
Freeview, Freesat or Commercial
FREEVIEW TV - Since the British Isles converted to digital broadcasting in 2005, all television sets sold from 2008 onwards had to be digital ready and incorporate an inbuilt digital decoder. To receive the digital channels a digital decoding device, or set top box was necessary for television sets that were not digital ready.
It is still necessary to have a TV antenna linked to your set top box or digital TV in order to receive the television broadcasts. The kind of aerial or antenna you have installed is especially important in weak or poor signal areas.
Freeview, via an appropriate aerial, provides national channels together with Ross-on-Wye regional programmes. Depending on your location and signal strength, there are over 70 SD (Standard Definition) and up to 15 HD (High Definition) channels available. It's also possible to listen to more than thirty digital radio stations broadcast from all around Great Britain.
FREESAT - Freesat uses a satellite dish to pick up radio and TV channels so a conventional aerial isn't necessary. Some high-tech television sets come complete with an in built decoder (DVB-S), but more often than not you'll require a digital satellite decoder linked to the satellite dish to watch programmes.
The strength of the satellite signal and quality level are vitally important and this is dependent on the size of the dish and efficiency of the Low Noise Block (LNB - the attachment on the arm of the dish . It is possible to tune in to more free broadcasts from different broadcasters and countries by putting in a larger satellite dish and an LNB with a higher gain to tune into weaker TV signals.
In Ross-on-Wye you can tune into almost 300 satellite channels (200+ SD, 20+ HD and 40+ radio channels) using a basic set up of Freesat equipment.
Subscription and commercial based digital services, like BT, SKY and VIRGIN, all offer a free service similar to Freesat or Freeview where a subscription or viewing card isn't required. A dedicated decoder and appropriate aerial or satellite dish is all which is usually required.
Costs vary across the range of subscription services and can be altered to meet the needs of your family. You can watch everything from new releases and live sporting events, to exclusive box sets and TV shows and practically everything you would need to keep everybody entertained, from a choice of more than four hundred digital channels.
It's also possible to access additional digital services via your broadband for an even better variety of programming and special features.
You won't ever need to miss out on another TV program with the options on many decoder units to record straight to an integral disk drive, or to an external USB memory stick.
Aerial Installation Ross-on-Wye
A television antenna should have as clear a line of vision to the broadcasting antenna as possible in order to get the strongest possible signal. To accomplish this you might need the antenna to be affixed to the highest point of your home and maybe even positioned upon a higher pole to raise it above any nearby obstructions.
A professional aerial installer will be qualified and be able to install or repair your new TV aerial quickly and safely. To put your mind at rest look out for the letters CAI (Confederation of Aerial Industries) whenever you are choosing an aerial installation company and be confident in the knowledge that they've trained to carry out any work required.
Satellite Dish Installation Ross-on-Wye
A satellite dish is just another means by which to receive broadcast TV signals and as such will require a clear line of sight to the transmitting satellite circling above. Buildings, trees and other obstacles can affect the signal and cause unwanted interference.
The satellite dish installation involves perfect placement and alignment, therefore the aerial technician will conduct tests with specialised equipment to ensure this is correct. A top notch satellite installer in Ross-on-Wye will make sure you get the best signal strength and will safely fix the dish to your home so that it doesn't move or "creep".
What Aerial Installation Entails
An on-site survey will be done before any sort of installation process to allow the aerial technicians to prepare a step-by-step plan. This is going to include a routing plan for the cable from the television antenna or satellite dish and the best point of entry for the cabling into your home. This is especially important for multi-room use of TV systems using the same dish or TV aerial. As soon as the preliminary survey has been completed the installation team should be able to offer you a precise estimate for the project.
Your local aerial installers in Ross-on-Wye should have knowledge of the problems and signal strengths associated with your area. Because of this they are able to offer the necessary equipment to get the best reception.
The installation process itself will have the aerial installer fitting the aerial to your house and testing the signal. To obtain the best reception there will be some fine adjustments to the positioning of the aerial or dish. The aerial cabling will then be laid and mounted along its planned route, in through the entry point for the cables and terminated at the required position in your property.
Finally a connection is made to your decoder or television set and the setup and installation of the whole system is completed. The installation is finalized when all of the TV and radio channels have been scanned for and saved to your decoder.
Accreditations and Professional Membership
When choosing an aerial installation contractor in Ross-on-Wye there are several industry focused professional organisations and bodies who provide accredited and trained, who can give customers the confidence they deserve.
