Sky have a Sky Q plug-in adapter that can allow residents to get Sky Q without the need for Managing Agents to reconfigure existing communal systems.

HD Anywhere can add value to Select Apartments

The permutations of HD ‘set-top’ boxes that deliver content from satellite, aerials and broadband can provide a real challenge to manage and keep neat. So rather than wiring to every room all the inputs and boxes can be placed in one cupboard with all the TVs linked using the HD Anywhere system.
The tenant or owner can then add their own Sky Q, Virgin TiVo, Apple TV, BT Vision, Netflix, Amazon Prime or future boxes of their choice. Architect placed TVs can be added in smaller rooms with connections for the feature TVs of the resident’s choice.

HD Anywhere can be controlled by remote, App or Voice using Amazon Alexa.

Recent, Communal Customer Reviews

Sorting out the signal and putting in a new switch in the communal system. Great work, 10/10.

Excellent staff Elaine & Andy. Excellent staff Elaine’s customer service & telephone manner. Andy the engineer that came out is a credit to your company polite explaining everything & fixed the problem that I had been experiencing.

Third time I’ve used Digital Direct at different properties. Each time I call, I get the same friendly welcoming voice when making an appointment. Thanks for the great service in an industry that rarely gives any. Murtaza, Harborne, B17, on Trustpilot, 10th November 2022.

VERY PROFESSIONAL. Redwood Healthcare – High Lodge Care Home, Redditch, on Trustpilot, 11th Nov. 2021.

Definitely recommend this company. Initial contact was friendly and understanding. Credentials were clearly explained. I was calling on behalf of my tenant. Both of us were kept fully informed throughout. Date fixed for appointment. Engineer called to explain the problem and ok the price to resolve the issue – tv aerial had suddenly stopped working. It appears that a new 4G mast was blocking the signal. I asked if there was anything I could do to complain about having to pay for something that was neither mine or my tenant’s fault but which I needed to pay to resolve. The engineer gave details of the organisation to contact. Brilliant efficient and friendly service from start to finish. Definitely recommend. Catriona, Redditch, on Trustpilot, 4th November 2021.

Fitted at very short notice. Richard the fitter was a great guy and inspired confidence. To top it all, price was lower than a previous quote! Reception is excellent and Richard showed me how to use TV.
Erdington Court Bowls Club members were delighted.
Ray, Erdington B23, on Trustpilot, 18th September 2021.

Had been looking for an engineer as a problem in my flat, not only did they recommend a communal specialist, but when he came out he tested it, everything was fine, I asked for another socket to be added to the bedroom, but he gave me a cheaper option and all done in 45 minutes, my sister recommended them and so would I.
Great job.
Steve, Birmingham, on Trustpilot, 16th October ’20.
