Before the switchover has taken place residents will have to decide how they want to watch TV. One of the choices is watching digital aerial TV in London with the help of Freeview set top box and aerial. However to do so, your aerial will have to be excellent quality to pick up a digital signal or you may lose channels.
Will My Existing Aerial Be Suitable?
Your existing TV aerial may be good enough to work with your Freeview set top box and provide you with all the channels Freeview supplies, around 50 radio and TV channels. To give you a good idea of whether your aerial may be adequate you can take a look at the picture you are getting now with the analogue signal.
If your aerial provides you with a good signal now you will probably be able to receive all the channels Freeview offers when the switchover has taken place. However if you find that your picture is distorted or has ghosting then you may need to have a new aerial installed if you plan on watching digital aerial TV in London through Freeview.
Do You Suffer From Poor Picture Quality?
In some of the worst signal areas in London a wide band aerial may be needed. This type of aerial is recommended in situations where the signal strength happens to be very poor. The typical reasons for poor picture quality are due to living surrounded by tall buildings or trees or if you live on the edge of where the nearest signal comes from. A wide band aerial is generally the answer to this as it boosts the signal, thereby giving you a clearer picture and better sound. It should also help you to pick up all 50 digital channels offered by Freeview.
