    Do people still put TV aerials into flats ?

    Hi,

    I'm renovating 2 flats and was wondering wheter TV aerials are still expected. In this internet / cable age just wondered whether people still bothered ?

    What sort of cost would you expect to run 4 aerial feeds into 2 flats from existing roof aerial?

    tia,
    Mike.

    You do not have to provide entertainment for your tenants.

    But of course people have T.V. aerials, and the licence fee has to be paid anyway.
    Why have cable or satellite when you have 80 +freeview channels ?

    We also don't know how far the flats are from the roof, so we do not know how much cable you will use, so best to get a quote from an aerial installer who will give you an all inclusive price.

    You will find that drilling holes in the external walls will be prohibited by the freeholder,and permission will be needed for 1) drilling holes in a wall that does not belong to you, and 2) fitting unsightly dishes.
    You will not own the driveway or pathways that will have to be dug up to fit cable, and the freeholder can refuse to allow the drive being dug up.

    No one in our block of flats has satellite T.V. as they are not stupid enough to pay for alternatives when it's already free.
    Best to keep to terestrial T.V. as said, go to your hardware shop with the length of cable you need for a price, or phone the aerial man.

      I'd put in a few TV aerial connection & possibly satellite also -freeway HD tuners are only £60-ish these days - to avoid hheavy handed Sky blokes drilling & cabling up where you don't want it.

      Two satellite cables minimum (for recording)

      Ram may disagree: I have properties capable of only 33 freeview channels but getting hundreds off freeway.

          Sorry, autocorrect again. Should read Freesat
