What is a digital aerial fitting?

The UK moved away from analogue TV signals in 2012 as digital broadcasts use less bandwidth and allowed for more channels. A tv aerial installation is required to receive a digital signal to your home. An aerial fitter comes to your home to safely install the dish and if needed, helps with Fitting an Aerial Socket wherever you need it.

Do you have to get an aerial installed?

If you want to access the full range of Freeview channels available, you will need to get a tv aerial installed. Having an aerial fitted correctly requires knowledge of the best direction to aim the dish, as to get as little interference as possible. If you have an older existing analogue aerial, you won’t be able to receive any channels since the digital switch over, so you will need a new digital aerial.

Why is it best to use professional aerial fitters?

Professional fitters are equipped with the necessary tools and safety equipment to undertake installations at height, reducing the risk of accidents. Their expertise and experience ensure that the aerial is positioned optimally, considering factors such as signal strength, obstructions, and the local broadcasting environment. Digital Direct’s professional aerial installers significantly improve reception quality and channel availability. Professional installations often come with a guarantee, providing peace of mind that any issues related to the installation will be resolved without extra costs. Aerial fitters can also offer advice on the best type of aerial for your specific needs and can future-proof your installation, ensuring it remains compatible with advancements in broadcasting technology.

Do multiple TVs need multiple aerials fitted?

As long as the signal strength and quality are reliable enough, you only need one digital aerial for multiple TVs. In order to do this, you will need specialised equipment to split the signal. Otherwise, it could display the same channel on both televisions. A TV aerial installer has the necessary equipment to split the signal while mitigating quality issues.

Do digital aerials work in rural areas?

Rural areas are usually located much further away from signal relays. Certain aerials will not have the range to find a decent enough signal, so you may need a longer-range aerial, or some specialised equipment. The problem with a DIY approach to boosting your signal, is that it could require trial and error, which would increase your costs. Our profession outside aerial fitters will run tests to find the best solution, ensuring you get the best possible configuration, while keeping the aerial fitting prices down.

Will fitting a digital aerial improve TV picture quality?

Fitting a new aerial has the potential to resolve bad picture quality. Each digital aerial has a built-in filter which reduces noise, giving a clearer picture. If you are experiencing poor picture quality, or missing channels, your aerial could be damaged, or simply pointing in the wrong direction.

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.
