  • How does a TV aerial work?

    A TV aerial, like any other antenna, is made of metal and was traditionally one of the key pieces of equipment that enabled us to watch television. Nowadays the Internet and fibre optic cables have become more favoured methods for modern television communication.

    Here’s a brief explanation of how traditional TV aerials work:

    1. Electromagnetic waves carry television signals through the air, which then induce tiny electrical currents in the antenna

    2. The currents travel down the cables to the television set

    3. The television set translates the currents into pictures and sound

    Most modern homes now use smart televisions, which use a combination of a TV aerial and the internet to access television programming.

  • How do I connect a TV to the aerial?

    In order to connect your TV to the aerial installed in your home, you’ll need to use an aerial lead that attaches to your TV at one end and the aerial socket in your home at the other. You’ll usually be able to spot the aerial point on the wall in various rooms in your home. In many properties there will be multiple aerial points, often in each bedroom and main living space.

    If you’re using a smart television, you won’t necessarily need to connect to the aerial socket – if you only want to access watch web-based streaming platforms, such as Netflix, Amazon and BBC iPlayer. However, if you want to access TV channels then you will need to connect to an aerial.

  • How do I check if my TV aerial is working?

    If you’re struggling with poor television reception or your TV isn’t working at all, it might be a problem with the TV aerial. Below are some of the ways you can check if your TV aerial is working.

    1. Test your TV aerial cable

    This is the quickest and easiest way to check if the problem is with the aerial or simply the cable that’s connecting it to your television. If you have a second TV in your home that is working fine, try using that cable on the television that isn’t working. If it works, then you know it’s the cable – so you just need to buy a new TV aerial cable.

    2. Test the aerial socket

    If you have multiple TV aerial sockets in your home, move your television to another socket to see if it works. If it does, you know the issue is with the other aerial socket and you simply need to call a local TV aerial engineer to repair the socket.

    3. Call a local TV engineer

    If neither of the previous two tests work, then you may have an issue with the TV aerial itself. If that’s the case, we recommend contacting local television engineers to come and investigate the problem – and hopefully fix it for you.
