If you have a house to live in, then the chances are, your TV aerial is up in your loft, or roof space, if you have one. There are the rare occasions where you might still see a TV aerial attached to a roof, or a chimney but, for the most part, fitters will tend to install your aerial, tucked away nice and safe within your property, but do you know which kind you have?
There’s more than one?
For a long, long time TV and radio transmissions were made by use of an analogue signal, that was that, and you didn’t really have a lot of choice in the matter. Whilst it’s still a little mysterious, how things like sound and picture can be sent through the air wirelessly to your home, the method of transmission is far from perfect, as local tv aerial installers in Ayrshire will confirm for you.
Why go digital?
Well, there are a few reasons, one of which is the reduced amount of frustration you might get from getting a distorted signal, it’s almost better to not have anything at all than to try and watch or listen to a broken signal. That’s not to say that digital broadcasting is perfect, however you will either receive a picture, or not, there is no in between.
As such, if you can’t get a signal then you know you need to call somebody in to check things out for you, rather than tapping your radio, or TV with the magic hand of ‘work god damn it’.
