    Is it normal for a house not to have a tv aerial?

    Im moving and the house I was told by the landlord does not have an aerial, is that normal? I thought all houses have aerials. I have virgin media so it doesnt matter really, but wont in bedroom and wanted a tv aerial in there. Thanks

    Nope not all houses have aerials

    Sky and virgin have made it easy to not have an aerial, although im sure i read someone that if you are renting a house the landlord must provide an aerial. dont hold me to that though

    Would be a waste as not all houses have TV's :w00t:

    It's only normal if the house normally doesn't have one.

    Can you do that? I will probably just buy one of the indoor ones for my bedroom, bit annoying though. Thanks everyone :thumbsup:

    Yes. You can then either run the cable back outside and into the lounge or straight to the room underneath.

    Thanks guys

    Depends on what your reception is like. You might get away with a portable aerial, one in the loft or you might be unlucky and still only get passable reception with a super duper signal boosted racing fin aerial on the roof.

    I remember back at uni my first year in halls I was on the 20th floor of a tower block. The TV got perfect reception with no aerial at all plugged in. Not that I had it on, honest, as I didn't pay a licence that year

    probably hasnt got an aeriel as it cannot receive tv signals at all. Its a more common problem than you might at first imagine.

    only option is sky unless cable in the area.

    ...i take it ur landlord dont have a tv license then :P

    Nothing to do with the landlord, the licence applies to the person paying him/her rent.

    If you've got a PC or laptop upstairs you can also view all the terrestrial chaneels plus a few other Freeview channels by installing and running Zattoo ! :thumbsup:

    It's free and only a few seconds behind live TV due to the streaming : :thumbsup:

    I have it on my Netbook and can watch TV wirelessly anywhere in the house !!
