What are common TV aerial problems?

  • Bad TV picture
  • Weak TV signal
  • Frequent disconnection
  • Interference 
  • Single overloading 

Now we have identified some common TV aerial problems, what can you do to fix them?

While some issues might be a simple fix, if the problem continue – it might need proper investigation. This is where we come in. Often these problems will need investigation at height which for safety reasons, should be left to a professional. 

Bad TV picture, weak signal & interference 

Bad TV picture is often related to weak tv signal. A simple solution to this problem is to purchase an amplifier or single booster. However this doesn’t always work. For the signal to be boosted – you need a good enough signal to begin with. A more effective solution is to improve the location of your TV aerial. It’s likely your TV aerial isn’t high enough to avoid obstructions. Once your TV aerial is free from obstruction you might find this was a good enough solution. If not, now is the time to look into a booster for that extra bit of help. 


Trees, nearby buildings, and temporary structures can all cause interference which in turn could affect the amount of signal between your TV signal and the transmitter. Again the only real solution here is to move your TV aerial higher if possible. 

Single overloading

On the complete opposite side, you might be battling single overloading. Now thankfully this is a lovely problem to have as it can normally be fixed with a small piece of equipment known as a filter. Splitters can also be useful here to distribute the single evenly through your multiple devices.
