TV aerial reception conditions in Banbury are generally quite bad. Not all of Banbury can receive digital TV even with a high gain aerial installation. Grimsbury and much of the south of the town works well on the Oxford transmitter but a lot of the town is in a dip and so does not have a line of sight to either of the main regional transmitters. These are in Oxford and in Sutton Coldfield (Birmingham). There is a TV local transmitter on Bretch Hill and many of the TV aerials in Banbury are directed to this transmitter. The disadvantage of using this transmitter is that it does not transmit the full range of digital freeview channels.
The Bretch Hill transmitter broadcasts its signals vertically and so it’s easy to see if you and your neighbours are receiving from this transmitter as the aerials will be on their side rather than lying flat. Our trained digital aerial installers are happy to carry out a free test to tell you which will be your best signal and whether we can achieve this with a new digital aerial installation or simply an aerial repair.

Most of the surrounding villages have better television aerial reception conditions than Banbury itself, with fewer complications. The most obvious exceptions are the Souldern and Somerton area where aerials often need to be fitted on tall masts to overcome signals being blocked by trees and higher ground. As our aerial installers are also trained satellite television installers, this is the sort of area where we have recently taken to carrying out a satellite dish installation to recieve BBC / ITV Freesat instead of using a terrestrial digital aerial.
