If the wind is howling a gale outside or there’s heavy snow and your TV reception is playing up then there’s a good chance that the two are connected. Bad weather such as gale-force winds, heavy snow and even heavy rain can sometimes disrupt your TV aerial services when they are being delivered through satellite.

In extreme weather conditions, the elements can actually physically damage your satellite dish and it can certainly disrupt your satellite signal. Heavy snow conditions can also cause large build-ups of snow on your dish which can result in the satellite dish becoming misaligned and you losing your signal altogether.

How bad weather can affect TV reception

In bad weather conditions you may lose some but not all your TV channels and distortion in sound and picture is also possible. Extreme weather causes the satellite signal to weaken because the rain or snow diffuses transmission power and absorbs energy from the satellite signal which, in turn, has a detrimental affect on the quality of the service and impacts on your TV reception.

However, none of this should put you off purchasing and enjoying satellite services. Extreme weather conditions of the kind that can disrupt your TV viewing are pretty rare and if the worse does happen then the team at Aerial Services are here to help.

If you think that bad weather has affected your TV reception then we can send one of our team to see if your dish has become misaligned and we will also do a diagnostic test to see if any other problems have occurred.

For any problems with your TV reception then please do not hesitate to give us a call.

If you’re having problems with your Freeview reception then there could be a number of reasons for this.

Typically reception problems can be caused by:

A fault with the aerial such as an obstruction or incorrect alignment

Corrosion of the aerial due to exposure to the elements

Faults with cabling, such as loose connections

Transmitter faults and planned maintenance – you should check this out first before contacting an aerial specialist. For example, if your neighbors are having similar problems, then there’s a good chance that a transmitter fault is to blame.

Before bringing in an aerial specialist, it’s always worth returning your digital box first if it’s not working properly. This can sometimes solve the problem.

It’s also worth checking out your cabling. If it’s become worn or looks damaged, then there’s a good chance that it’s the source of the problem.

If all else fails, then your aerial is likely to be the root cause. If you contact Aerial Services, we will send one of our highly experienced engineers to check out the problem for you. Using our state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment they will be able to test the problem and identify where the issue is originating from. They will then either repair the problem or arrange a new aerial installation for you that will give you crystal clear reception.
We have significant experience in troubleshooting Freeview reception and Freeview Aerial Installation problems so contact us now to arrange a callout.

Firstly, check the aerial connection to your TV and make sure it is securely connected to the right port. Secondly, make sure that the aerial cable is still attached to the TV aerial antenna – sometimes they can get dislodged, and finally check for any damage to the aerial itself or see if any of the cables have become loose.

Before having a digital aerial installed it’s always worth doing a bit of homework first before deciding on who to hire for the installation and what type of aerial to get. Here are a few facts you should know about digital aerial installation before you go ahead:


There’s no such thing as a digital TV aerial – This may surprise you! Aerials have developed significantly over time and a modern aerial which is designed to receive signals more effectively is referred to in the industry as ‘digital’. True, they do look different from older aerials but to call them ‘digital’ is not strictly true. They are just modern aerials which receive signals more efficiently.

Do you definitely need a new aerial?- Not necessarily. You may need your existing aerial repaired or upgraded, it really depends on the kind of signal you are receiving and where you’re living will have a bearing as well. If you keep experiencing a break up in your signal or you get a lot of pixilation then there’s a chance that you have some problems with the components in your aerial system or the aerial is not a suitable size to get the best signal strength. Our engineers will do a diagnostic test in these situations to see what the issue is.

Do you need more than 1 aerial if you have several TVs? – This is a question we often get asked. The fact is you only need one aerial to operate multiple TVs. All you need is a multipoint digital media system or have TV and satellite points in each room that you have a TV in. We can advise you on the best solution to suit your needs.

Will you automatically get HD channels if you have a digital aerial installed? – No. The only way you will get HD is if you have a HD ready TV or a HD receiver box attached to your TV. Most TVs that you buy today are HD ready and the move towards Smart TVs with internet functionality and 3DTV as well means that most people are now enjoying HD. A digital aerial helps to enhance the overall viewing experience so that you can enjoy HD at its best.

The above are just some examples of the questions we get asked about aerial installation. If you’re experiencing problems with your TV picture and you’re looking for some friendly and honest advice about whether you need a new aerial or not then please give us a call. We will send one of our highly experienced engineers to your property and they will conduct a diagnostic test to see what the problem is and provide you with a solution that gives you what you need at a price you can afford.

Since TV went digital many people have had to get new aerials installed so that they can enjoy everything that digital TV has to offer such as additional channels, great picture and sound quality etc. If you need a new satellite aerial installing there are a few things that you need to be aware of before you go ahead. For example, if you live in a registered or listing building or even a conservation area there may well be special restrictions that apply before you can get an aerial or satellite dish erected.

If you are unsure then the best thing to do is check with your local planning authority to see if there are any restrictions. In the vast majority of cases a satellite dish can be installed without the need for planning permission but if you live in a listed or registered building you will need building consent so make sure that you check before you do anything.

Even if you don’t need permission you should take care that the aerial or satellite dish that you are erecting doesn’t significantly affect the appearance of your building. If it does then you run the risk of the planning authority asking you to move it at your own expense.

Another thing to remember is if you live in a flat or rent your property then you may well have to get permission from your landlord or property manager before going ahead. For blocks of flats it usually makes sense to have a communal or shared aerial so that everybody can get access to digital TV.

Satellite Aerials Advice

The maximum number of aerials or satellite dishes that a building can have is 4. If your building is less than 15 metres high then this is reduced to 2. Anything over and above this will require planning permission.

Something that you may not be aware of is that your satellite dish doesn’t actually have to be attached to your house. As long as it is concealed in your garden or attached to a tree or garden shed then that’s fine.

If you are unsure about your situation and need some advice about satellite aerial and dish installation then please give us a call. We will be glad to help.
