TV aerial installer in Banbury
At Oxford Aerials we pride ourselves on our excellent, professional service, supplying, installing and repairing aerials in and around Banbury. Our TV aerial fitters can tackle any problems you have relating to reception issues with our knowledge and experience of the reception conditions in and around Banbury. Our installers are in Banbury and its surrounding towns and villages most days, so we can arrange an appointment to call out to you and give you specific advice and a quotation for work. We do not charge for this.
Our six fully trained installers (trained by the CAI – Confederation of Aerial Industries) offer a range of TV aerial installation options from loft aerials to roof aerials and chimney mounted aerials as well as supplying and fitting aerial amplifiers where appropriate to fix any reception issues. As we have fully stocked vans with all the necessary equipment, we can usually resolve most problems for you and get you perfect pictures on our first visit if you wish us to.
We often make repairs to existing aerial installations and sometimes a simple upgrade can make your system fully compatible with Freeview. Our independent TV aerial & satellite installation service engineers are also able to repair, upgrade or install a new satellite dish for use with the Freesat service as well as Sky Q. We also fit satellite dishes for other services including foreign channels on the Astra or Hotbird satellites.
We are always available to provide you with any advice you may need on either an aerial or satellite dish installation to receive the hundreds of free channels from these services.

TV reception conditions in Banbury
TV aerial reception conditions in Banbury are generally pretty bad. Not all of Banbury can receive the whole digital TV (Freeview) range of channels even with a high gain aerial installation. Grimsbury and much of the south of the town works well on the Oxford transmitter but a lot of the town is in a dip and so does not have a line of sight to this transmitter nor the other regional transmitter in Sutton Coldfield (Birmingham). The local transmitter on Bretch Hill tends to be used for terrestrial aerial reception the weaker reception areas in Banbury. The only disadvantage of using this transmitter is that it does not transmit the full range of digital channels.
It is easy to spot if you or your neighbours are receiving signals from this local transmitter as the Bretch Hill transmitter transmits its signals vertically so the aerials will be on their side rather lying flat. Our experienced digital aerial installers are happy to carry out a no obligation signal test and tell you which option will give you the best signal. Another option to get the full number of digital channels available (as you would from a main regional transmitter) is with a Freesat installation. Signals for this come from a dish which we can install neatly and discreetly for around the same price as an aerial installation.
TV reception conditions in the villages around Banbury
Most of the surrounding villages have better television reception conditions than Banbury town itself with fewer complications. The most obvious exceptions are the Souldern and Somerton area. In these villages there is surrounding higher ground so aerials often need to be fitted on tall masts to overcome signals being blocked by trees and hills. As our aerial installers are also trained in satellite TV installations, we can also carry out a Freesat installation if this is deemed to be the best option instead of a terrestrial digital aerial installation.

Our installation and repair work for our customers is always carried out professionally and to the highest standards whether it’s for a small domestic installation, a communal system for a block of flats or a larger installation for a commercial building or tower block.
All our sign written vans carry a full range of TV aerials and radio (FM and DAB) aerials, poles, brackets and other TV aerial equipment we might need as well as satellite dishes & LNB’s, other associated equipment and Freesat receivers. This means we can offer you the most reliable, guaranteed reception in your area for both standard definition and high definition signals (where available) whatever your reception issue.
Extra TV points can be added to your existing installation if you want TVs in other rooms. These can be connected to get the same picture quality as your other TVs.
If you have Wi-Fi blackspot problems in your property, we can hard wire cat6 data cables and install WAP’s (Wireless Access Points) to increase the Wi-Fi coverage. We have installed many of these and are able to carry out a site survey free of charge to assess the signal coverage we can achieve.

We have upgraded systems for domestic customers and for communal systems on behalf of management / letting companies for this new service. We also install foreign language satellites for use with the Astra or Hotbird satellite.
