Television, that word is just music to many Australian’s ears. When we’ve had a long day at work, or have some free time, switching on the telly is usually the first thing we do. There is no thinking to be done, we just reach for that remote and the second that you sit on that couch, an instant sense of relaxation takes over. Calmness soon turns to anger when you find that the screen is fuzzy and your favourite program has been interrupted by the TV’s reception.
As much as we can’t be bothered with finding out the source of the issue and would rather switch off, the problem may not go away. We have some suggestions to try before contacting an antenna specialist.
Many households experience reception issues relating to external interferences, they occur when signals from around your home are competing with your signal. Although this issue requires a technician’s assistance, diagnosing the problem early will help you solve the issue.
All homes with televisions should have an antenna installed on the roof, and we must emphasise the importance of having a good quality cable, as this can have a significant impact on the strength of your reception. We advise against getting up on the roof and assessing the situation, as this can place your life in serious danger.
At times, sometimes resetting the set box or television can make a huge difference. For those with Foxtel or any type of Pay TV, we suggest rebooting the system to see if that fixes the issue. Free to Air viewers might want to remove the antenna from the TV, then place it back into the socket.
It’s important that you do your research when looking for an antenna business, as it’s imperative that the best materials are used to prevent any issues from arising in the future.
