Freesat Installers in Gillingham
Town and Country Aerials Ltd are approved Freesat installers throughout the Gillingham area. Freesat is a digital satellite service, using a dish to receive the signal rather than a conventional aerial, giving high quality reception making it especially suitable for homes where the normal Freeview digital signal is not good.
As the name implies, Freesat is a free TV service giving a very similar channel line up to Freeview, including the HD channels, although there are a few differences.
To receive Freesat, you need a standard type satellite dish; with a separate cable to each room for the signal (you cannot split a satellite signal in the same way that you can split a conventional aerial signal). In each room where you wish to watch TV you will need a Freesat receiver - there are various types of these including HD and recording models. There are also some televisions with Freesat built in, thus eliminating the need for a separate receiver, but these tend to be the more expensive sets.
In a similar way to conventional aerial systems, the Freesat dish system must:
- Have a clear line of sight to the satellite
- Be accurately aligned using the correct meter
- Be securely mounted, weatherproof and safe
- Have all connections correctly terminated
- Use double screened coax cable which is CAI approved
- All other components must be fully screened
- The finished job needs to be tested and all equipment tuned and demonstrated
If you are having problems with Freeview digital reception due to poor signal, then Freesat is well worth considering. Town and Country Aerials Ltd can offer bespoke installation services to meet your needs.
