TV reception conditions in Reading

Reading lies between the Crystal Palace and Hannington transmitters and so reception from both is quite weak. On the whole it is possible to receive digital TV in the whole of the town. Of course a few difficult locations exist within Reading with localised tree obstructions and some of the high rise buildings causing ghosting. Particularly bad areas are those around Cemetery Junction and in lower Purley by the river. Also parts of Caversham where reception is so poor that a small local transmitter (Hemdean) has been built to feed those houses which cannot gain reception from the regional transmitter. Once a signal test has been carried out by one of our digital aerial installers we can advise more clearly on which transmitter is working better at your location as this will provide you with the most trouble free viewing.

Our aerial installers are all fully qualified under the CAI registered digital installer scheme and can perform aerial repairs to an existing system as well as new digital aerial installations. This is often enough to make an aerial installation work for digital. Satellite installations are also now used as an alternative to an aerial as the BBC / ITV broadcast Freesat which is an equivalent to Freeview, this can be received by a satellite dish installation. Our professional satellite television installers can easily carry out dish installation instead of a TV aerial installation.

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.

Outside of Reading, heading east signal is generally good in the Twyford area. Going south of the M4 television reception is good towards Shinfield but there lots of patches with poor reception in Wokingham and Bracknell. Going north and into the fringes of the Chilterns reception is dependent on the lay of the land, so in Sonning Common for example digital reception is good at the top of hills but poor in the valleys. To the west reception is good in the flat area around Theale but there are poor television reception areas in valleys between the hills around Bradfield. Oxford Aerials are always happy to give a free assessment and quote for any work.
