Aerial installation

Put simply, installing or repairing a satellite dish will directly improve the signal’s strength for your television, including extras such as Freeview. There are many factors that affect the aerial’s signal so if you’re suffering problems, be sure to bring in the experts.

  • Digital TV aerial installation

Aerials for digital TV such as Freeview and Sky need to be installed on an external wall of the property or chimney breast to ensure receiving the best signal strength. Professional engineers will be trained to find the best area to gain reception and heighten results.

  • Digital aerial upgrades for Freeview

If you already have an aerial installed on your home but either the signal isn’t very strong or some channels aren’t appearing, it’s worthwhile upgrading the technology. Some of the older aerials can’t provide an adequate reception and a replacement will instantly boost your television experience.

  • TV aerial repairs and services

When an aerial isn’t receiving a strong signal or channels aren’t listed on your TV, you won’t always need a replacement fitted. Having a professional carry out a diagnostic check-up is one of the best ways to find a problem and help you save money on a new installation. If the existing aerial can’t be fixed, then the engineer will be on hand to replace.

  • Communal and commercial services

It’s not just domestic properties that can benefit from new aerials and repairs. Digital satellites and aerials are installed on commercial buildings too and diagnostic repairs and maintenance will be needed to ensure a signal remains strong and no problems will affect reception. Commercial properties include hospitals, businesses, hotels, pubs and clubs.

Average Aerial installation cost

Aerial and satellite installation costs can differ depending on the type of aerial or satellite dish you want, how easy it is to access your roof or loft, and where you live.

If you're simply buying and setting up an indoor aerial, this won't cost you more than about £10 a little more if you need additional cables. But if you're going to install an outdoor aerial, the common cost is about £180. This is because they're trickier to set up, so lots of people hire professionals to help them.

Aerial installation FAQs

How to install a TV aerial

The process you need to go through to install a TV aerial depends on the type of aerial you have. If you have an indoor aerial, it’s simple. Just plug the aerial into your TV and stand it up next to it. If the signal isn’t right, then try moving your aerial closer to a window or higher up. Make sure you rescan for channels every time you move it so you know if you’ve made an improvement. It’s also fairly easy to install a loft TV aerial – just take it up into your loft and position it in a convenient place. Again, experiment with angles and positions to ensure you get the best signal. Installing an outdoor TV aerial is a little trickier. Ideally, try to fix your aerial to a wall or chimney at a gable end – this will be much easier to access than a chimney in the middle of the roof. Follow the instructions that come with your aerial for mounting it – it’s usually best to lash your aerial on rather than use screws. If you’re not used to working at height or aren’t confident doing your own aerial installation work, it’s best to get in touch with a professional.

Do I need a new aerial to receive HD channels?

Not if your current aerial is in good condition and receives a good signal. If you don’t currently get a good signal, you may need to upgrade or relocate your aerial to receive HD channels or if your TV is not HD ready. You may need to upgrade your television if this is the case.

Do you need an aerial for Freeview?

Freeview is only available through a TV aerial. You can’t access Freeview using the internet, so you’ll need to invest in a TV aerial if you haven’t got one already.

Can aerials be installed in places other than my roof?

Yes, an aerial could be installed in your garden or on outbuildings. This will depend on the strength of the signal in your area. A professional aerial installation company will be able to advise you on the possible locations for an aerial on your property.

Can I receive a satellite signal using an aerial?

No, you will need a satellite dish to receive a satellite signal for services like Sky or Freesat, as these are specific channels and programmes only broadcast via this medium. These can be installed in a similar way to a standard TV aerial by a recognised engineer.

What is satellite TV?

Satellite TV is a service that provides its customers with a wide range of TV channels by transmitting signals from a communications satellite. Users around the world can pick it up using a satellite dish mounted on their property and connected to their TV. Satellite TV is particularly useful for viewers who live out of aerial and cable TV range in remote areas.

How to connect a TV to an aerial

Your TV and aerial need to be connected by coaxial cable for your TV to work. Most properties have wall mounted connection boxes – similar to electrical plugs – that you can simply plug your TV into. If you don’t have a cable, it’s easy to pick up one from most DIY shops.

If you’re installing a new outside aerial, you may be able to reuse the old cable. If you can’t, you’ll need to route a new one down from your aerial to any sockets you need. Coaxial cable can be routed down the exterior of your property, through loft spaces, under floors and along skirting boards.

What should I do if I’m experiencing poor TV signal quality?

If your TV picture is pixelated, poor quality, or cutting out, there may be a fault with your aerial or the cables connecting it to your TV. Also your aerial may not be located in the correct place. An experienced aerial company can carry out a survey to discover the fault.
