Improve Your Picture with a Professional Antenna Service in Sunshine Coast

December the 10th 2013 was the landmark date that saw the entire country switch over to digital-only television transmissions, and whilst the transition was relatively simple for the majority of people, some were left with poor reception and in some cases, no reception at all. The switchover to digital terrestrial television made it possible to benefit from extra channels, improved picture and audio quality, but making sure you can receive such signals may require an upgrade.


Whether you choose to purchase a digital-ready television with a digital tuner built-in, a set top box which allows you to view and record the digital channels, you may need to look at your existing aerial setup beforehand. Many homes’ existing aerials and coaxial cables may be relatively ancient by today’s standards an in need of a dire upgrade. The same goes for caballing around the home, as the older the cable is, the more likely the degradation of signal quality sets in.


To receive a digital signal you will require a capable aerial and whilst many homes existing equipment can receive such signals, in areas where reception is poor, an upgrade to a high-gain wide band aerial is recommended. A professional will be able to help you with your digital antenna installation in Sunshine Coast and surrounds as many people left it late to upgrade. It is best to choose an antenna service due to both technical knowledge and safety precautions.

One of the many benefits you will get by upgrading your entire antenna and caballing system is that it will often be guaranteed, as well as being able to last a good 20 plus years. In locations where poor signal is evident, your Sunshine Coast antenna service engineer will be able to locate a poor signal, supply the appropriate high-gain antenna, as well as helping install signal boosters if necessary.

Using the help of a government approved antenna installer will ensure that you are getting both quality of service, as well as a fair deal. Officially approved antenna installers were used for the get ready for digital TV scheme launched to ensure people switched to digital television before the switchover. The installation engineers have huge experience in converting analogue systems into digital and should be your first port of call when wishing to switch or upgrade.

Not only will upgrading your system help to improve picture quality in poor reception areas, you may also be able to benefit from HD (high definition) television services that are broadcast in the Sunshine Coast area. Along with a digital EPG (electronic programming guide) to view what is on at any time of the day or week, with the addition of a PVR (Personal Video Recorder) you can complete your digital home television and recording system and say goodbye to your poor reception problems.
