We are more local that we appear because our installer Tony Cowles lives in Bicester. Tony works in or around Brackley every couple of days so he knows the local reception conditions very well. Because of this, we can visit your house without charge to survey any work you may want to have done. Phone the office on 01869 879111 to arrange a visit.
Brackley and the surrounding villages are served by two main TV transmitters. The strongest signals come from the Oxford transmitter and most of the town receives it’s signals from this direction. The second most commonly used transmitter is the Sandy Heath transmitter near Bedford. This gives two options for TV reception and the two transmitters are fortunately approximately in the opposite directions. This is useful because if a house is in a bad reception area for one transmitter because the lie of the land is wrong, then it is quite likely to be right for the other transmitter.
Our digital aerial installers usually carry out a quick test to see which transmitter is best. Because Brackley is half way between the two transmitters and quite a long way from both neither delivers a very strong signal. Because of this, most digital aerial installations in Brackley are fitted on tall masts and many have masthead pre-amplifiers to deliver a strong enough digital signal. This can make aerial repairs in Brackley slightly more expensive than in better reception areas. Because of this, carrying out a satellite installation to receive the new BBC / ITV Freesat service is now sometimes a cheaper option. We are also satellite TV installers and regularly carry out dish installations.

Most of the villages around Brackley have better television reception than the town because the land is higher and flatter and the Oxford transmitter works well.
