TV and Radio Aerials

Digital TV in the UK is available via three main platforms – terrestrial aerial, satellite and cable (in some areas).  Freeview is the UK’s platform for terrestrial based subscription free television and radio services via an aerial.

As well as Freeview channels you can add to the Free to Air channels available by way of subscription packages from Top Up TV and BT Vision.  Channels available by way of these subscription packages include Sky Sports and ESPN.

Digital Switchover

The UK is currently switching all of its terrestrial TV transmitters from analogue to digital providing more choice of channels and higher quality sound and vision.  When your area switches to digital, most people will find that their existing aerial should be sufficient to receive the digital signal.  A good general rule is that if you currently receive a good analogue signal, you should be able to get a good digital signal after switchover.  To find out when the switchover happens in your area then click here (Digital UK Postcode Checker?)

If you do require an aerial upgrade then we recommend that you use a Registered Digital Installer.  Please click here and complete the enquiry form and we will do our best to put you in touch with a reliable local registered installer.  Alternatively visit to find a registered installer in your area.


There are up to 50 subscription free digital TV channels.  All you need to do is check that the digital signal is available to you and then purchase a digital box, TV recorder or digital TV.  Freeview is available in High Definition and products are available to enable you to receive this.

Freeview +

Freeview + enables you to record your favourite TV programmes without subscription.  Features include live pause and rewind, split recording and series linking where you see the green button.

Digital Radio

Digital or DAB radio lets you to receive all your favourite stations as well as a range that are only available through the digital signal.  You don’t have to remember individual frequencies – just the name of the station.  When you are listening to music the title of the artist and the track playing may be displayed and headlines may be shown whilst news bulletins are broadcasting.

Digital radio has a superior quality of sound with no hissing or crackling.  It’s important that you check coverage in your area to make sure you can receive the digital signal before purchasing a digital radio and you can check this by visiting  In most urban areas you can get good coverage using the aerial attached to the radio.  However in some rural and poor reception areas an external roof mounted aerial may be required.
