TV Reception Conditions in Henley
The town of Henley-on-Thames lies in a valley which blocks TV signals from the two main regional transmitters in the area (Crystal Palace and Hannington).The town has its own local transmitter on the far side of the river, most of the houses in the centre of the town have TV aerials receiving from this local transmitter. This Henley transmitter only delivers a limited number of digital channels. There are parts of the town where even this transmitter cannot be easily received. The worst reception area is Deanfield road and Valley Road and the closes off of these roads. Here there are lots of tall masts to improve reception.
For those wishing to receive a range of digital TV before April 2012 in Henley-on-Thames, there is now the option of having a satellite installation to receive BBC / ITV Freesat. As satellite TV installers, we can carry out a dish installation in Henley instead of a digital aerial installation to get you digital TV this way. Because these satellite installations are fairly cheap, they are sometimes a lower cost than even a TV aerial repair in Henley-on-Thames.
OXFORD AERIALS also provide a Sky dish installation service and satellite dish repair service.
We provide domestic and commercial tv aerial installation services. No job too big or small. Call 01865 400141 for a free quotation.

Local Television Reception Conditions
Outside of the town, television reception generally improves as the ground is higher and more level and signals from the two regional transmitters generally works. This allows for digital reception.
The main exceptions are Lower Shiplake where there are some weak spots and the Stonor and Assenden Valley where television signals from Crystal Palace and Hannington are both blocked. There are local transmitters in Assenden and Skirmett which feed their local villages but as with the Henley on Thames transmitter, there will be no digital signals until April 2012. As in Henley, BBC / ITV Freesat is increasingly a solution in these areas- our digital aerial installers can advise you as to your options as part of a free survey.
