I bought this in 2013. It is rubbish as an aerial but looks good on the chimney stack. I haven't had a TV licence since 2013 as I couldn't get it to pick up a signal, and I can see the mast!
I just realised it's been 7 years since I watched live TV. My children 11 and 12 don't remember ever watching live TV. Am I alone or do others only choose what to watch when they want to watch it?

I don't watch TV either. I have a 55" Sony bravia which I picked up for £550 a few years ago in here.

TV is such a bore generally.

This is a high gain antenna, if you can see the TV signal mast then you probably need to attenuate the signal to make it weaker.

Does TV Licencing hassle you at all?

I don't watch live TV at all but I have a Sky dish and TVs, so pay it as it would be pretty hard to argue I don't watch it.

As all they would say in the court is that I have the equipment, so.must be evading the Licencing fees.

Same here. Other than football, can't recall the last time I watched live TV. I remember a few years ago my aerial blew off with the wind but I didn't bother getting it replaced.

That said, I use BBC iPlayer a lot (moreso than Netflix and prime) and a TV licence is still needed for that.
That's a good deal. I bought a new build and bought a caravan style aerial for 7 quid off Argos and stuck it in the loft, as that's where the co ax terminates, it's generally ok, high 30s dB reading, could probably do with a bit higher gain. I'm about 25/30 mile from transmitter

exactly. I bought this one last year for £14 and channels were very glitchy. ended up sticking it in my loft and now get every channel and linked to 4 seperate televsions with 80% signal / 100% quality on all of them . Great aerial.

Ditto, we have Netflix and Prime. Major problems with aerial years ago got bored trying to resolve. Also realised years ago the first thing we did was 'put telleh on' a throwback from our parents. Love Island and sport is a challenge for the kids, but they find a way.... Loving your username how did you do that?
I got this full price and have put it in the loft. I've tried 2 previuos aerials and this is the only one that has worked.

Lol turned out to be a massive saving though by not paying for TV licence all these years.
If this is the aerial I think it is, then very often people forget to twist the elements into the correct position, might be worth checking.
The price of a TV license is a very cheap way of avoiding endless ads in my view. Plenty of people paying more every couple of months for dreadful Sky/Virgin. However, if the BBC wasn't so wasteful it could be cheaper.

No, I had one visit around 2016/17 they were fine. None of the Tvs are tuned in or connected.
They have to have evidence that you view live tv, not possess equipment capable of receiving live TV. The only problem I had was with a finlux smart tv that needed to be tuned in to receive catchup services. I don't bother with them, We have student prime and turkish netflix and nowtv every now and then when a cheap deal comes up on here.

No, although I did get a licence on 3rd Jan this year to watch doctor who on BBBCi player. The hassle to cancel it wasn't worth it. It about 6 emails in the end and then they wanted me to post the refund form! I scanned it and emailed it. They only refund full month's so it cost me £12 for 2 days TV. Rip off. I just received my notice to say I won't be reminded about TV licensing until Feb 2022.
I did have a visit in 2017ish, they were ok with the aerial up there, none of the TV's are connected to it. I passed her the remote and said there you go have a look, she just said it's ok and left.
I didn't want to risk the BBC's I player without a license though as you have to log in now and I assume they can ping you from your IP address. The app is now removed from all my devices now anyway just to be safe and none of the TV's are tuned in to terrestrial tv.
First r me it was an expensive way to watch a bit of Doctor who.
I fitted this model this week into a loft. I bought the fixing kit which comes with a small pole to allow more flexibility in setting the correct direction. Must say it's perfect. Easy to fit and got a great signal.

No need bro.
brilliant, just moved house and need a new
antenna 👌🏻
My Ariel doesn't pick CBebbies HD and a couple of others, from googling it's something to do with 5g and a weak transmitter that's going to get turned off (can you tell I don't know what I'm talking about? ). Any chance this Ariel will solve that problem?
Ariel in 2020? Wow.

You might need it, and to point it at a different transmitter, if it's being decommissioned. 5g is using some old TV frequencies so some of them are being shifted. Has already happened at my transmitter (pontop pike)

Ukfree.tv is a useful source of information.
I have this aerial with bits hanging off it just get better qaulity
