Or you may be experiencing signal interference due to new buildings, tall trees, and other things blocking the signal.

Antenna installers don’t just install antennas. They can apply their technical expertise to a whole range of services, from diagnostics and repairs to in-home audiovisual equipment installations. Here are some of the most common services you can get help with from your antenna technician and what you can expect:
If you haven’t already purchased your antenna, your antenna installer can help you choose the right one for your home. Unless you live near to and within line of sight of your local transmitter, you’ll need an outdoor antenna (not an indoor one). You’ll need to get your digital antenna installed outside - usually on top of your roof. Your antenna installer will check the location of your transmitter to point your antenna in the right direction. They’ll test your signal so you get the best, most reliable reception. Once your antenna’s in place, they’ll run cabling from your antenna, down inside your home/wall through to your TV wall point. They’ll help you get everything connected up so you can watch your favourite free-to-air TV shows.
TV antennas are usually designed to last a decade or more before they need upgrading. But if your antenna isn’t working, it might need a TV antenna repair or adjustment. Sometimes wild weather, branches, and even local birds and wildlife can cause your antenna to move out of place or get bent or broken. A TV antenna services or repair can save you money and get your reception problems sorted quicker than buying new. Your TV antenna technician will perform a visual inspection from the ground and via your rooftop to see what the problem is. They’ll test your reception and put your antenna back in place so you can get the best reception again. If local environment changes are causing you reception issues, they may recommend solutions like a higher masthead or an amplifier to boost your digital TV signal.
Need to book a Foxtel Installation or get cable TV wiring done? Many antenna installers are experienced with these technologies, as well, so you can get your whole system set up at once. If you’ve moved house or need to move rooms around, you’ll need call on some expert help to get these set up how you want them. Your technician will measure up the space so they know how much cable is needed and where it needs to go. They’ll move and install your cabling, set up your equipment, and make sure you’re getting the right channels. And if you’re not, they’ll troubleshoot any issues with the connection until it’s working properly.
Need a TV wall point installed? Or want to add a few extra TV wall points in your bedroom, lounge, or man cave? Your antenna installer can safely run cabling through your wall to the right spot. They’ll make a hole in the wall, connect up the cable to your wall plate, and then attach it securely in place. If your TV’s ready to go, they can connect up your antenna cable and make sure you’re receiving a good signal to your TV. If splitting the signal between multiple TV wall points causes issues, they may also recommend installing an amplifier to help boost the signal.
Antenna installers are experienced with a range of TV installation tasks. Many even offer TV wall mounting and can help hide your cabling for a clean looking installation. Get your home theatre set up along with your TV antenna installation, including a full AV installation and sound system. Your technician will set up all the components and connect them so you can get the best audio-visual experience in your home - just like the cinemas, but better!
