With many aerial installers in Blackpool, and plenty of other regions around the UK, rather than looking to provide the best digital solution for their customer, they look to do what suits them. When a customer rings up to have another TV point into their home, and just look to install a cheap contract aerial on the same mast and to run the aerial cable into that room.
Looking at this picture to the left, you can see that not only is it unsightly looking on a property, but it is an accident waiting to happen. It wouldn't take much of a strong wind to take this whole TV Aerial rig down.
The Correct Way to install a TV Aerial to multiple points
If the customer requires 2 or more TV points to be installed, then we will fit a quality digital aerial, such as a log periodic. These new style digital aerials are fantastic for attracting a strong signal. Once we have got the strongest signal, we then install an outdoor splitter at the nearest point to the actual aerial. Once the signal has been split we run off the splitter box the cables, ensuring we use quality cai approved cable to reduce any signal degradation. As per the pictures below. The end result is a neat looking digital aerial on a mast feeding multiple TV points instead of multiple aerials on a single mast. For more info on TV Aerials click here
