Although postcode checkers indicate that you are within the reception area for digital Freeview television, there are several factors that need to be taken into consideration.
DAB Aerial Systems.
For example, you may be in a low lying area in relation to the transmitter with several obstructions between the transmitter and your home.
These obstructions will affect your TV reception due to reflection and a phenomena known as diffraction, where the radio waves carrying the television signal can be spread out and weakened.
This can cause your TV signal at your receiver to break up, and possibly cause complete loss of certain channels. To solve this problem, digital compatible aerials were designed with the purpose of increasing the gain of the television signal before it reaches your receiver and improving the picture quality.
It is also possible that your TV aerial, free satellite TV (Freesat) or Sky television dish has been moved out of line with the transmitting satellite. This can also cause 'picture break up' and loss of channels.
If this is the case, you will probably need a satellite dish repair or re-alignment. Perhaps you've used an indoor TV aerial before where you've had to turn it for a better picture? It is the same for satellite dishes but you will need greater accuracy to achieve a high quality picture with satellite television.
DG TV and Aerial Services can supply and install these aerials or repair your satellite dish, and our engineer will even show you the improvement using some of his specialist equipment, giving you total customer satisfaction and a guarantee of quality workmanship.

Losing television channels or experiencing 'picture break up' with satellite television can occur when the dish is out of alignment, or if the LNB is broken or obstructed in some way. You may also see 'no signal' on the television screen.
Our Satellite Engineer will diagnose the problem and provide a solution to restore any channels that you may have lost through your Sky or Freesat/Freesat+ receiver.
