Company info

For 40+ years, Dan Ford and his team have been installing TV and radio aerials and satellite systems, including Sky, Sky Q, Freesat and dishes for international channels.

Dan's father, Roger, started the business in 1975 from his mother's home in Whitley. In 1985 he bought a shop on the Wokingham Road and ran the business from there, whilst offering DIY and technical advice from the shopfront. Dan took over the business in 1995 and recently (2015) moved their office to Headley Road in Woodley.

In addition to aerial installations, their most popular services include:

·               Mounting TVs on the wall and hiding the connecting cables

·               Installation of high-quality CCTV systems with remote viewing from anywhere in the world

·               Installation of home ethernet networks and WiFi signal improvement

Their office is situated at the rear of Addstyle UK and is open to anyone wishing to purchase DIY products, book a home visit or enquire for technical advice.

They are members of the Confederation of Aerial Industries (CAI). In addition, Dan has a distinction in Satellite Master Antenna Television (SMATV), which is the highest recognised award in the industry.
