1. Will I need a new TV antenna?
A. Many existing antennas will be able to receive digital transmissions without any problem, but in some cases equipment may need to be upgraded to receive reliable digital signals.
You will need to find out if the current TV antenna is designed for the same band of operation that the digital TV broadcasts in the area will be transmitted on. In some cases it will need to be upgraded because the new digital channels are in a new frequency band or because the antenna is older or not in good condition. You can find the best antenna and accessories for your area by speaking to Cables & Wires. With the digital switchover completed in 2012, most antennas today have been manufactured specifically to receive digital channels (particularly those made after 2007). You can have your antenna system assessed by Cables & Wires to find out whether it needs to be replaced.
2. I live in a flat that uses a communal system, can I still get Freeview?
A. Your building may need to upgrade its antenna system in order to ensure good quality access to digital TV. This may be necessary if, for example, components are broken, corroded, outdated or of poor quality.
You will need to find out if the current TV antenna is designed for the same band of operation that the digital TV broadcasts in the area will be transmitted on. In some cases it will need to be upgraded either because the new digital channels are in a new frequency band or because the antenna is older or not in good condition and can't receive adequate signal.
The building's antenna system (including cabling) can be assessed by Cables & Wires who has experience in master antenna TV (MATV) systems to find out if it needs to be replaced or upgraded.
