Seen this the other day their RRP is a bit high as you can pick it up elsewhere for around 30 quid. But yeah it's a good price

We had one of these. No noticeable improvement in signal but it does catch the wind more.
No such thing as a digital aerial. Transmission frequencies are analogue, but modulation may be digital, amplitude (AM). frequency (FM), single side band (SSB), etc.
Aren't these triple ones a bit of a gimmick, I'm sure I read some of the simpler designs perform better?

Reception has been improved here by a new relay, so I'm intending to get a log periodic antenna, which doesn't look much, but is supposed to be very directional, so very good at reducing interference from reflections.
Are these any good installed in the loft?
Log periodic aerials are wide band low gain, tv channels used to run chan 21 /470 mhz to chan 68/ 890 mhz. Since the government have started to sell off parts of the radio spectrum for mobile phones all the channels will be moving. Here in the north west chan 58-68 is now for 4g telephones,we all had to fit filters around here to stop the phone networks from causing picture breakup. Chan 49-59 will also soon be sold off,aeirals are grouped according to frequency group a starting at chan 21, group b and group c/d.. No high gain aeiral can cover this range so you are always best to go for one that covers your local tv transmitter frequency range. By selling off so much spectrum it will soon mean all tv channels will be HD so they can fit into the remaining channel space,this will render non HD standard definition SD equipment obsolete.
Digital aerials...
..just like digital headphones back in the day..LOL.
People still watch terrestrial TV?
For those who don't have a minimum of 2mbs up 100mbs then yes.
Saturation coverage of broadband internet and 4g/5g is not available everywhere in the UK.
No need to get a fancy aerial but invest in good cable from the socket to the tv and the stability of picture and the extra channels you can fine blew me away.
‘Trannyboy’ that’s a very comprehensive post. You’ve obviously got a lot of knowledge.

Can you explain about the filter? Where can you buy them?

Thanks.😄 .

Without a decent aerial / receipt of a signal from the TV tower - cable made from Platinum and have Mutishielding Foil & Braid (that's the high end shielding!) wouldn't make a difference. Socket to TV cable ie Coaxial, even the cheapest stuff is fine. Is like the debunked theory that HDMI cables, where more expensive is better. In testing the £2 cable performed the same as £150 cable.
You need a decent signal. That's all there is to it. Either a better aerial / a booster / aerial needs repositioning.
