Whitstable, Kent United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 23, 2011 -- TV Aerial & Satellite Installers, a leading UK supplier of satellite, home entertainment and digital TV aerial installation services, comment on the relationship between digital TV aerials and Freeview.
With the digital switchover set to reach completion in 2012, anyone who wants to keep using their standard Freeview box will have to ensure they have a TV aerial which can support it. The switchover is taking place to ensure that everyone receives a better broadcast signal than they have in recent years, which has seen some areas receive certain channels better than others. The switchover will see all television signals broadcast as digital information rather than the traditional analogue format, which will provide clearer reception for everyone.
However, this means that everyone will have to have some way of receiving the digital transmissions. Many people have purchased Freeview boxes over the past few years, which provide a limited assortment of free-to-air channels. However, in order to receive the best picture and sound, some people may need to upgrade to a digital TV aerial by the time the switchover is complete.
"The Digital Switchover has been a long time coming, and there has been a real push to ensure everyone is prepared, but some aerials will receive better digital signals than most," commented a spokesperson for TV Aerial & Satellite Installers. "While most aerials will pick up the digital transmissions, digital TV aerials which feature the digital 'tick' will receive the most reliable picture and sound. As a leading provider of TV aerials, we can advise people of which will suit them best to receive optimum broadcast reception."
