How much do TV Aerial Installer services cost?

Are you planning to have an aerial or satellite dish installed in your home or property? If yes, then you’d probably want to know just how much it’ll cost to get this project over the line. In this post, we’re going to provide you with a good insight into the installation cost of aerial and satellite dishes so as to help you make the best possible informed decisions moving forward. Let’s take a look!

Just like any other home improvement project, there are a number of factors that can affect the cost of installing a new TV aerial and satellite dish. These factors include the type of aerial or satellite dish being installed, the location of your property, the ease of access and lots more. For instance, different types of aerial require different configurations as well as adjustment which can add to the time frame and overall cost of labour. Also, if you happen to reside in big cities such as London and Manchester where there’s a higher cost of labour, you should be prepared to receive quotes that’ll exceed the usual.

On the average, the price charged by aerial and satellite installers is within the range of £150 to about £250 and takes about 3 to 6 hours to complete by a specialist. Also, if your home possesses tricky access points which prevents the installer from reaching the parts of your home to wire or install the aerial, additional costs would have to be paid for extra resources.  In other words, to get the most accurate estimate, you may have to reach out to a professional to obtain a quote after a visit to your premises.

The table reveals the kinds of service that Aerial & Satellite Installers usually do and also the average price variety of these tasks. Some projects take longer to finish than others so costs do differ by project.

TV Aerial Installer FAQs

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.

What are good TV Aerials

The ridiculous, sprawling TV antennas are now a thing of the past - with the advancement in technology, today’s TV aerials combine both style and function at a price which is affordable. Now, we all want to get a decent signal in rooms without fixed aerials or watch TV on the go, without having to stress too much or pay an exorbitant price. If you’re looking to good TV aerials to purchase and install on your home or property, then you’ve come to the right place. In this post, we’ve selected some of the very best TV aerials around to help you make the best-informed decision possible moving forward. Let’s take a look!

 

RGTech Monarch

With an impressive range of 50 miles, this paper-thin and multi-directional antenna is top of the range. It’s able to receive the full spectrum of TV as well as radio signals which implies a clear and noise free 4k and 1080p content. It features a filter which prevents any interference from mobile phone with the signal. What’s more? It also possesses a whooping 15ft, double-coated cable which implies that the antenna can help you get signal in all corners of your home or anywhere you choose to watch TV.

 

One For All SV9465 Loop

Considering the 15 miles and signal gain of 48Db, this antenna offers a great number of features at a reasonable price. It’s also HD-ready and is able to offer support to content resolutions of up to 4k. The TV aerial uses multiple boosting and stabilization features including Automatic Gain Control to maintain a good signal and avoid dips.

 

1byone Indoor Freeview Portable TV Aerial

This is an extremely thin TV aerial which can simply be stuck to a window to improve range as well as signal strength. It’s 4k ready and has a range of up to 25 miles which should be no problem as no wall is likely to obstruct the waves given the fact that it’s meant to be stuck to a window.

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.

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.

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.

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.
