How to set up an indoor TV aerial

With the right indoor TV aerial, you can enjoy crystal-clear broadcasts indoors. Imagine never having to miss a TV show again because the signal was weak. In this blog post, we’ll teach you everything you need to know about indoor TV aerials, from what they are to how to set one up. By the end of this article, you’ll be ready to start watching your favourite shows in peace and comfort! We have provided step-by-step instructions on how you can set up an indoor aerial in your home.

Step 1: Choose the right aerial

Choosing the right aerial for your TV can be a daunting task if you don’t know what to look for. Before anything else, make sure that you follow the instructions carefully and research different types of indoor TV aerials before making a purchase. Once you have decided on the aerial, it is time to install it! Make sure to consult with an experienced professional so that everything goes smoothly and without any hassle.

Step 2: Get set up

Connect the aerial cable to the rear of the TV or set-top box you’ll be using. If you have a new television or set-top box, you must first tune it to the local digital channels.

Step 3: Position the aerial

The best position for the aerial will depend on your location and the type of signal you are looking for. To get the best signal, place the aerial as high up as possible in your home or office. Once it’s set up, test your TV and cable/satellite signal by switching channels. Aerials aren’t always the most aesthetically pleasing of devices, so you may try to disguise yours but make sure it is still in a working position. 

Step 4: Accessing all the channels

Digital TV channels are bundled into six bundles, known as multiplexes, and delivered at various frequencies over the TV airwaves. Poor reception in one portion of the band may result in the loss of a complete multiplex and all of its channels. Tune in to BBC One, ITV, BBC One HD, Dave, Yesterday, and QVC to see whether you have full reception (each channel is on a different multiplex). A decent aerial should provide you with at least the first three channels, but the last three may vary depending on where you reside.

Step 5: Securing the aerial

Finding the best location for your indoor TV aerial is critical for receiving strong, consistent TV coverage, therefore we recommend securing it once you’re up and running. Velcro pads with adhesive are a nice alternative, although Blu-Tack can also be used. Some aerials may even be wall mounted, making it simpler to conceal them.


Having an indoor TV aerial is important for watching TV and other channels without interference. Follow the instructions in the blog to set up your indoor aerial in no time! This can be a difficult task even following the steps. If you want TV aerial professionals give us a call on 0800 470 2408. Alternatively, you could fill out our simple contact form.
