Need a TV aerial but have no idea where to start? Use this as good beginners guide! We can assist you in choosing your perfect aerial for TV.
Indoor aerials are good if you live within a 15 miles radius of the nearest transmitter, and they are easy to install as you don’t have to mount them! Most indoor aerials come in reaches of 3, 9 or 15 miles.
If you live more than 15 miles away from the nearest transmitter but less than 30, you should use an outdoor aerial. The two most common outdoor aerials are Yagi and One For All, which is easy to mount and more modern looking than the former.
Loft aerials are becoming increasingly popular, particularly in new build houses, as most households do not want an aerial on show and ruin the aesthetic. It is important to ensure that loft aerials are positioned correctly, and at the right height, and they are not recommended for use with a metal roof.

Amplified vs. non-amplified aerials
Whether you need an amplified or non-amplified aerial depends on the area you live in. If you live in an area near a transmitter with little interference, a non-amplified aerial will do. However, when living further than 3 miles away from the nearest transmitter or in areas with a lot of signal disturbance caused by Wi-Fi or mobile phones, then an amplified aerial is the best option for you
The mobile telephone networks 4G/LTE partly use the same bandwidth as DVB-T and therefore might create interference that dilutes the clearness of the signal. One For All aerials have a build-in LTE/4G filter to take away this interference, ensuring crystal clear reception. Please make sure to check specifications to find out if your aerial has a built-in 4G/LTE filter.
