Digital Direct Aerials’ Installers are specialists in finding the best signal in marginal TV reception areas.aerial-installation-2-vans

Aerial sockets make it possible to access high-quality television pictures in our homes. Sometimes known as TV sockets, these wall-mounted outlets host a coaxial connector that enables you to receive a signal from a TV aerial or satellite dish. It provides a neat, effective, protected means of connecting TVs and other devices to external aerials. The coaxial cable is plugged into the back of the television, and then the other end of the cable is plugged into a wall socket that connects it to the aerial.

Ensuring you have all the aerial sockets you need in your home is essential. The good news is that they’re relatively simple and quick to install and can make watching TV even more enjoyable.

Where should you fit a new TV aerial socket?

TV aerial sockets are fitted in a variety of rooms across the home. Typically, living rooms will feature an aerial socket in a convenient location to enable people to relax and enjoy the TV programmes they love.

Increasingly, a TV aerial cable fitting might be added to a kitchen, so people can watch TV or listen to radio services, while they’re cooking, eating or carrying out other tasks. In many homes, the kitchen is the place where people gather, making it a practical location for fitting a coaxial aerial socket.

For many people, fitting an aerial plug in the bedroom is a priority. Other people might choose a family room, or perhaps even a garden room that they want to turn into a home cinema. In fact, you can install a new TV aerial socket anywhere in your home or commercial premises where you intend to watch TV.

Are there different types of aerial sockets?

Aerial sockets come in various types, including the traditional coaxial socket and newer designs like the F-type connector. The choice depends on factors such as signal strength, compatibility with devices, and installation requirements.

Are aerial sockets easy to install?

Aerial socket installation is a relatively straightforward task for a skilled installation technician. They understand how to complete the installation in a range of different locations and have experience of overcoming a range of particular challenges. For that reason, fitting a new TV aerial socket is not a job that most people can undertake themselves. While it’s possible to purchase TV sockets for DIY installation, the task itself is generally best left to trained professionals to ensure a high-quality installation

Arrived on the time arranged, Very knowledgeable guy, fitted our aerial in the loft with a booster in the lounge and we now have superb reception in lounge and bedrooms.
Would definitely recommend.

Can aerial sockets be moved?

Aerial sockets can be relocated, but it isn’t always a straightforward task. It will usually involve making adjustments to cabling and ensuring correct alignment with the aerial antenna or satellite dish. To do the job correctly will usually require technical expertise.

We are grateful for the excellent work of the engineer who sorted out a new arial in the pelting rain and made no fuss at all and did a great job. Mrs Higgins, Stourbridge, DY9, on Trustpilot, 5th January 2024.

Very professional. Digital Direct were recommended to me by a friend and I can see why. Following a phone call with a very friendly and helpful person in the office, two engineers arrived within about an hour. I wanted an improved aerial to operate four televisions throughout the house. They gave me a quote which was less than I had guessed at, and completed the work straight away. I wish that I had called sooner. Joanne, Stourbridge, DY9, on Trustpilot, 4th January 2024.

Great quick service. Called on Tuesday to enquire about a new tv aerial. Engineer arrived following day and fitted new aerial and connected 2 rooms for less than £300. Great service, tuned both TVs before he left. More than happy to recommend Digital Direct Aerials. David, Birmingham, B43, on Trustpilot, 3rd December 2023.

Recently used Digital Direct Aerial for a replacement Aerial. They were quick, professional, honest and reasonable priced. I would 100% use them again. James, Lye, on Google, 3rd November 2023.

Great service, thanks for your help. ( Installed new aerial, mast & brackets with new cable to the lounge. ) Stephen, Walsall, WS3, on Trustpilot, 27th October 2023.

David & Jack arrived to sort out our major TV aerial signal drop off. David took out a new smaller aerial on a shorter pole and got reasonable signal from both directions. Then installed the new aerial, masthead amp with new power supply and enhanced signal splitter under the TV, by our new Humax box.
The signal was the best ever in over 30 years here.
I also asked for a new FM aerial and Jack quietly cabled this from the mast, down the side of the house and through the extension utility to the lounge. Very tidy and works great. Also excellent value for money.

Rob, Coventry, on Yell, 26th October 2023.

Replacing aging aerial. Thanks for fixing the issues I was having with my signal. The engineer was excellent and very helpful. He supplied a compact digital aerial in the loft so it was out of the way and removed the old one off the roof. 100% recommend this company. Good value as well and very well organised.

Aerial fitted in loft. Turned up on time, polite, gave us the time to explain what we would like done, the engineer then checked and made sure we could fit our aerial in the loft with good reception and connect aerial points to rooms required, then explained how much it would cost.
