All Aerial Discounts, Offers and Sale - December 2018
Bought and returned this as I didn't get a signal.
worth a try at this price heat added. i have some £0.70 ones im using from amazon and they just about work. im 1 mile from the mast and i can get 1-5 in hd and a few others in sd which is great but very little else. hopefully more with this..
May be a better choice, a high gain areal https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B007JPOX8O/ ??
Yeah we did the same thing. the digital signal needs strong signal and in many area they needed to upgrade aerials in those areas can’t see it working at all. Our area didn’t need them but when we tried it you could get one channel but not others and those that did could come and go.
I have just ordered, but if I'm right there's no problem to return if it's not working
I'm not really opposed to the idea of a TV license, I just think the price is exorbitant, and I don't like the way it's enforced. I don't watch live TV because of it, and I'm sure many are on the same boat, which actually hurts the other channels that don't get funded. TV as we know it is short lived, and the TV licence will only speed it's demise.
Do you expect free VED when you buy new tyres too?
Think you may be wrong here. Anyhow, we are not the only country which pays a TV licence. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Television_licence
There's no such thing as an HDTV aerial!
If a have a good enough signal for this to work then the aerial from Poundland with two telescopic arms will also work!
One for All Amplifired Indoor Aerial instore at Tesco for 88p... Maybe cheap as it's been fired.
I got a 'one for all' aerial from richer sounds for 49p😁
Maybe you can get sky sports thru it (y)
Ridiculous price for an indoor aerial
Either if you have the appropriate connection.
Is this plugged into to wall or can it plugged into back of TV?
Heat added but they are 99p in Toolstation if you have one nearby: https://www.toolstation.com/shop/p30919
MALE + 2 FEMALE = HEAT
Found it for £1.45 on ebay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-Way-COAX-Coaxial-TV-Aerial-T-Splitter-Male-to-2x-Female-Metal-Adaptor-Adapter/273060741486?hash=item3f93b0416e:g:1twAAOSwp-RafB8x
There are digital Ku band sats at 33, 31.5, 30.5, 28.2 (Sky), 26 and 25.5 degrees. Relatively easy to align a dish but this device doesn't help much if at all. I had one some years ago and used it once before it went in the bottom of a drawer. Many installations aligned since without.
I dont know where you get "loads, just a few degrees apart"; other than the Sky cluster, where they have several sats old and new, all beaming the same channels, but at different parts of Europe, I have only ever come across one close pairing that wasnt 2 versions of the same sat system. Of course if you are going out looking for the weird sats and odd channels* that most people have never heard of, then yes, something a bit more pro is needed; But that bit more pro cost a LOT MORE money. *Does Red Hot Dutch still broadcast?? (ninja)
Use this and satelite finder app and set hotbird under 2 minutes (that alltogether with conecting and going on the ladder)
That's the point though isn't it? You have no idea if you are pointing at the actual satellite you want. With loads just a few degrees apart it's still hit and miss. Of course you can use a sat box with a known channel on a known transponder which you can do without this anyway. It could be more useful for DVB-T I guess. If you're doing it regularly a pro unit is a must, semi-regularly I'd go for a cheaper pro unit and if once in a while I'd go for the box method.
Cheap Satellite meters on eBay (UK Stock) for under a Fiver delivered will be just as (in)accurate as this!
Only 14 miles, good for most but not those trying to get Full Freeview over “Lite” - just a heads up people, heat anyway.
I have one of these. Does the job, no complaints here.
Found this instore at Shoreham Tesco ( holmbush center ) not sure if it's only this store doig the deal . £30 reduced to £8
I have the curved one in the picture and it's not that good tbh. Has to be lodged against a window to get a reliable signal.
Turns out there's a code error. Should be £35. Honoured £5 at till after check.
A bit like buses, you wait ages for an amplified indoor aerial deal to come along.......
Short runs might be ok. But even with a booster. I'm not getting all the freeview HD channels
picking mine up in morning local store had a couple left
That's what I was worried about.
It will be the cable these cables are crud quality
i've used this cable, and i don't get all the freeview hd channels. whereas i used to when using short factory cables joined in series. problem i have now is i don't know if it's the cabling or the booster :S.
Know just the place to stick my aerial. Reception is not great but seems so much better at the back of the house.
Actually, this model is quite good at picking up channels in fringe areas; I live very close to a transmitter, too close, the signal is awful, so I have a couple of these pointed at the nearest main transmitters, -~25-30 miles away, and get all the channels. Only issue is reliability, I have had several of these die over the years; average lifespan is about 2 years.
If you're in a strong signal area yeah, the TV network was designed for more capable and sensitive aerials (i.e. big outdoor ones) so there are areas where these small ones aren't good enough to pick it a signal.
Oops Sorry! Predictive text. I have a friend called Arial :)
The symbol of peace
I nearly bit on this deal, but want some new cable for a longer run. The cable is marked up as 3C-2v which is a cheaper make of cable similar to that of RG59 cable according to Wiki. So basically OK for a short run if you've got a good TV signal. Any one looking for a short run of really good cable, Amazon have this as an add on item for £5.49 currently. Webro WF100 10 m Low Loss Digital Satellite Coax Cable with 10 Clips - black, you'll need to add connectors etc.
Thanks, heat added....
If i want freeview tv but dont want yo pay for virgin tv can i connect this to my attic ariel to tv.
Now now, handbags down.. Wiki says bolts are fasteners - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bolt_(fastener) ie Refers to the shaft rather than the head, which is the main point of contention here.. I would say the deal is not a bad one especially for 50 screws @ £4.99 .. I have many TVs and wardrobes I want to hang on the walls.
Some people use the word 'of', when they should use the word 'have'. Equally mistaken.
Nothing to do with political correctness at all. Simply identifying the correct tool for the job. Some folk will argue that black is white and won't desist even when the evidence is in front of them. You suggested that Toolstation call them coach bolts, I proved that you were wrong but you still persist.
you defo live in the PC world dont you,as i said some people refer to this type of screw as a bolt because of the size of the thread because most people will use a spanner or socket and ratchet to tighten it,if you cannot get your head around that then i cant help you
Intelligence is slim with this one
If you need to run a gas pipe or wiring through a brick wall, line the hole with this first.
Haha - well it's all relative isn't it? If you use PVC in an application where it causes less environmental damage than something else, it's good.
You could presume,
aerial mast? with a 21.5mm plastic pipe which'll barely hold up a pair of pants, you're having a laugh!
Yes it will.. few years ago had some 22mm copper pipe so decided to use two 6 feet pieces as clothes hangers in a small walk in wardrobe. So made up some cement , blocked one end and rammed cement in, it took the weight of the clothes no problem and looked nice after polishing. So the same could be done with an aerial mast made from the pipe, story over. This is the pipe have to use for the drain off from a combi boiler because of the acidic conensate.
it is a quarter of inch difference hardly a different product all together and the extras are cheap even if required
totally different all together!! the one you bought is 30mm from wall.... the one above is 23mm from wall and comes with extras
This is actually brilliant, finally a proper one box solution, why hasn't anyone done this before!? i have a small sat install business so it's a superb idea to have the convenience of combining an HDMI, ethernet Lead, aerial lead, drill bit and tons of spacers and fixings in one box.The bracket is very flush but the open design makes access to connections easy,, quality is obvious in all components, and for the price!? So yea ,what more can i say, perfect! (y)
I distribute my Freeview antenna to 2 rooms via an amplifier (1 with PVR, 1 without) and found that with cheap cabling I got a really poor signal. Upgraded to better extensions and the issue was gone. YMMV.
I bought this some time ago for £1 The quality was and probably still is what you would expect for £1 or indeed 75p
Will connectors work with virgin
Digital. Yes I like watching live TV. You're funny though.
Seriously??? You’ve got Netflix and a private media server setup and you still require hardwired, archaic, ancient hardwired coaxial analogue tv input? Hahaha
One well knowing satellite shop sell same cable for 8£ per 100 meters reel. ( U have just say that U r - trader )
what f connectors do i need? just a standard one..
Not sure if it works with virgin but I would have thought so. Only tool you need is a knife to cut off the plastic coating.
back to 16 quid now :-(
Is this for summoning a butler or something?
Just bought a 32" Samsung Smart TV for bedroom and will try this to see if I can get the freeview channels without getting a cable run through with aerial But agree with WaxMechanik up the top there. Weird concoction
Does this have a camera?
I have never had an indoor one work since the 90s I take it it's for "seeing the transmitter from your window" locations?
