All of Abingdon town has a good digital TV reception (and radio reception) except for the following patches. Firstly around Caldecott Road where the ground is low lying and there are trees along the River Ock blocking TV signals, another around Albert Park (Conduit Road etc.) again where trees cause a problem and finally near the centre of the town by St. Helen’s church where television signals are shielded by the large buildings in Abingdon town centre eg. the Town Hall.
Apart from these areas, a standard digital aerial installation will work perfectly pretty well everywhere else in Abingdon . In the trouble areas, it’s usually a case of a taller mast and perhaps pointing an aerial to the Hannington (Newbury) transmitter rather than the local Oxford transmitter. Our aerial fitters are very experienced at assessing TV reception in the Abingdon area. Often an upgrade, aerial repair or re-alignment can be enough to allow digital TV to work.
OXFORD AERIALS also provides a Sky satellite installation service and is an approved Sky registered agent. We provide domestic and commercial TV aerial and satellite installation services. No job is too big or small. Call 01235 239622 for a free quotation.
In the surrounding villages the story is similar, with most of the area being very good, with a standard digital television aerial installation delivering perfect reception but with there being one or two weak areas usually caused by trees blocking signals. The bad areas are Whitecross and Wootton which are largely blocked by Boars Hill; some of Kingston Bagpuize and Marcham and particularly Frilford and Tubney.
In particularly bad reception areas where trees block the signals from all directions, and there are a few around Abingdon, particularly the centre of Sutton Courtney, it is now often more economical to use the BBC / ITV Freesat service to get free digital broadcasts from a satellite installation which do not suffer the same tree interference. Our aerial installers are also trained satellite TV installers so can often offer a solution from a dish installation.
