I've tried similar products to this in the past and never found that they made much, if any, difference.

Use to have Aerial amps with the old analogue signal but digital means you either get it or not and have had no need for them.
Might be wrong though for some.
With the old analogue signal I found rubbish in = rubbish out.
You have to have a semi usable signal to amplify otherwise it's amplifying noise as much as anything. On analogue TV it could mean less grainy pictures, on digital it might mean less blockiness and breakup if you're suffering those symptoms. You could shove a 2 way 'y' splitter into the output to run 2 TV's which usually works much the same as a proper 2 output amp.

In some very specific circumstances, this kind of amplifier may be the difference that makes everything work.
More likely though, it will do nothing, or make your reception worse. Especially if you're using this very close to your TV.

Amplifiers are however brilliant for long cable runs. If there's a lot of a cable between your aerial and TV, installing an amplifier near the aerial can make a huge difference. The longer the aerial cable, the more signal is lost in the cable, so if you use a 'masthead' amplifier on your aerial, or a device like this deal in your attic, you should overcome any cable losses.

Any TV with a decent dvb-t chipset should see no improvment when using a booster right next to the TV, if anything it may cause problems. (too much Freeview signal is bad)

If however, you're running an extension, and find Freeview works fine going into the extension but not coming out the other end, installing a booster at the source of the extension will probably fix it.
Some useful info on the different types of Freeview signal boosters available, taken from this page.

I have an indoor aerial for a TV in our spare bedroom and it is blocky and cuts out, although the aerial has a built in amplifier and as soon as I plug it in and turn that up, the reception is almost perfect. So in some circumstances I think this could be helpful.
This deal reminds me of the 1980's.
could you tell me what fittings I need at ends of coaxial cable that would connect booster to tv. male/female female/female etc. many thanks
