Absolutely fantastic experience. I called Digital Direct on Monday afternoon, Dave came out on Tuesday morning (spot on agreed time of 8am). He gave us an instant quote which was favourable considering what I’d read online, did the job and was gone by 8.17am! He was polite and efficient and adhered to Social Distancing rules throughout. The office then called me a couple of hours later to Check I was happy with the service and take payment and then sent me an electronic receipt. Excellent service throughout!!!

Excellent. David was very helpful and sorted our problems out straight away thank him very much for all of his help. Cherralyn, Stourbridge, 5th June 2020.

Excellent service provided by David, really happy with the end result, TV’s look great.
Kevin, Stourbridge,27th May 2020.

Very efficient, same day service, excellent from David who solved the problem within 15 minutes. Not really surprised by this service as this business had provided first class service 10 years ago (and it is worth mentioning that we have had no problems since 2010). All in all extremely happy!. Alan. Halesowen, 27th May 2020.

Family run business … pleasure to deal with … slick, fair and transparent … perfect job. Slick booking process, really personable (Sarah) and Dave who came to mount my new TV above the fireplace was such a smooth operator. Clearly articulated what he was going to do and how much it would cost, fitted and finished with minimal fuss and actually understood the products I had so was able to offer advice about features I didn’t know the TV had! Will 100% use again. Sam, Hadnall, 1st June 2019.

Rob – Commercial Systems Engineer Rob - Commercial Systems Engineer

Nik headhunted Rob for his in depth knowledge of the latest commercial and communal systems including Integrated Reception Systems, IRS Fibre systems and multi-platform integration. Rob has settled in well with the team and Nik can trust him with the most complex systems.
Nik still personally manages all the larger contracts so he hogs the name checks however Rob’s name has featured in commercial and other testimonials.

Excellent Response and Service I live in an apartment complex in Solihull where our communal television service failed affecting about twenty residences. Digital Direct juggled their workload so they were able to visit our complex in the morning after the problem occurred and restored the service. Rob the engineer checked on two elderly residence to ensure their tv settings were maintained and the televisions were functioning correctly which was much appreciated. Ronald, 20th December 2019.

Rob was prompt, cheerful and courteous and solved the problem of the tv. We would certainly recommend this company. Maureen, Stourport, 31st May 2019.

Signal breaking up most times when it was raining. Richard the engineer found the fault & suggested a new downlead. When on roof he checked signal strength of aerial and suggested I replace it. It was over 25 years old. Price was excellent. He even tuned in our PVR & tele. Neil, Stourbridge, 22nd January 2021.

Excellent service, no way I could have installed this without Richard. Very professional.
Nick, Coventry, 9th January 2021.

Was so pleased with Andy who installed a new tv aerial for me through Digital Direct. He was so efficient and friendly nothing was too much trouble for him to do.

Thanks Mark and the girls in the office that sorted my request. Well done guys, Regards and thanks, Dean, Solihull, 12th October 2019.

I used these guys just over 12 months ago, so a year on and they have been true to their reputation.

I have no hesitation in recommending their service or using them for further work. FairAndSquare, 9th August 2019.

Trustpilot Name Checks

Thoroughly professional job with fantastic results.Luke arrived on time & from the get go had a really can do attitude: “I’m not going to leave until I’ve sorted everything out” Good investigation skills (not afraid to consult with colleagues) & overcame “weird” issues with Sky tv. Did a very thorough job with fantastic results on installation. Invaluable advice given. Andrew, Hatton, 21st January2021.

Excellent service from Luke. Will certainly use them again. Nigel, Worcester, 9th January. 2021.


Luke turned up in good time and immediately recognised that the aerial installed all those years ago was by your company. The problem was obvious with the bracket having come loose and the aerial leaning. He immediately gave me a price, which I accepted and promptly carried out the repair. Job well done, in the rain as well! The Preventive Maintenance Co, Bromsgrove, 25th February 2020.

Great service – as always! Nick came out to fix a small problem with the data cabling in our home. As always he was quick and efficient – explaining the problem and fixing it in next to no time. We’ve used Digital Direct for a few things over a number of years, and would recommend them to anyone. Emma, Birmingham, 14th June 2020.

Just had my internet wired into an upstairs bedroom. Had been struggling working from home and connecting to the internet. Extremely reliable, discussed what was needed with Nik the Engineer and fitted, no problems. Internet working perfectly and no connection issues, which is extremely important as I work for local government. I had some concerns re the virus, but social distancing was adhered to and would recommend these guys. Lesley, Stourbridge, 9th June 2020.

Excellent service. Being in covid 19 lockdown I was worried when my aerial came off the roof. A call to Digital Direct assured me it could all be taken care of. I was really impressed with the service Nick arrived with face mask, gloves, ‘social distancing’ and did a fantastic job. I can’t thank them enough.
Barbara, Knowle, 14th May 2020.
