Video quality in terms of television shows and home video has taken a number of substantial leaps forward in the last few years. For many decades, the maximum resolution of a TV set was 480i, which is also now commonly referred to as “standard definition.” In the mid-1990s, things took a big jump first to 720i and then to 1080i, or true high definition. As consumers, we are now standing on the precipice of yet another jump in quality in the form of UHD, or “Ultra HD.” Officially, UHD has a display resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels, which is significantly higher than traditional high definition content. The obvious question then becomes – do TV antennas have a place in a UHD world? The answer may surprise you.
Many people assume that if they want to be able to watch all of their favourite films and television shows, they need to spring for an extensive cable television package. While it’s true that cable TV does offer hundreds (and in certain cases) thousands of channels that you won’t find anywhere else, the idea that a TV antenna installation from Picture Perfect Aerial Installations will cause you to miss your favourite content is absolutely inaccurate. Once you begin to clear up a number of common misconceptions about TV antennas, you’ll begin to get a better idea of just how valuable they can really be.
Just because you have TV antenna installation performed doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re guaranteed the best quality TV reception at all times. By the very nature of the technology that you’re using, a wide range of different variables could make reception better or worse at any given moment. By understanding a little bit more about what can cause TV antenna installation reception issues, you put yourself in a better position to correct these problems when they do occasionally crop up. This allows you to guarantee that you won’t miss even a minute of the shows and movies that you love so much.
When you begin the process of having a TV antenna installed, there are two main options available for you to choose from depending on your needs. Either you can choose to go with a smaller piece of equipment that is installed on the inside of your home, or you can choose to go with an outdoor antenna supplied by Picture Perfect Aerial Installations. Both have their fair share of advantages that can’t be ignored, but it’s important to understand that the specifics of your own situation, as well as factors like the layout and location of your home, should always influence the decision that you eventually make.
Cord cutting as a concept is one that has become increasingly popular over the last few years. People have finally understood the simple truth that you no longer have to pay a cable company a huge amount of money per month for 10 channels you want and 100 that you don’t. You can access all of your local digital programming, which will include most of your favourite shows and movies free with the installation of the right type of digital antenna. If you’re thinking of making a break from “big cable” yourself and recognize that an antenna is an ideal way to do that for your situation, there are a few key things that you’ll want to keep in mind. The Benefits of TV Antenna Installation As previously stated, one of the major benefits of having a TV antenna installed is the fact that it gives you unrestricted access to…
If you’re the type of person who depends on a TV antenna for most or all of your programming, you’ve no doubt run into the following scenario at some point in your life. You’ve invited some friends over, ready to watch the big game that’s about to start in a couple of minutes. You’ve already got all of the snacks and drinks out and everybody is excited. You turn on the TV and instead of that sporting event that you’ve been looking forward to all week long, you find… nothing. In the best-case scenario, you get a screen filled with static. It’s happened to all of us, but the good news is that troubleshooting a TV antenna installation is easier than you think and you can usually have most problems fixed in just a few minutes.
When it comes to TV antenna reception, there are a few common misconceptions that unfortunately stand in the way of getting the best possible audio and video quality for many people. Some assume that just by buying a high quality antenna, they are guaranteed to receive the best looking video and the best sounding audio at all times. While the equipment does play a huge role, the way the equipment is installed and even the way it is used are arguably more important. If you want to guarantee maximum TV antenna reception, you’ll need to keep a few key things in mind with these tips from Picture Perfect Aerial Installations.

Finding out whether your antenna needs replacing or your TV setup just needs some fine tuning isn’t always a straightforward affair.

Birds of a feather flock together and if your roof makes a convenient, comfortable roost you can soon find yourself surrounded by our feathered friends. This is great if you’re an avid bird watcher, less great if you’d rather watch TV. As well as disrupting the signal, birds on your roof can physically damage your TV aerial. This damage can be caused by the weight of larger birds bending the prongs on the antenna and the build up of dirt and debris from nesting and guano deposits. Picture Problems Probably the surest indicator of antenna trouble caused by physical damage and wildlife disruption is if your neighbours have good TV reception while your aerial struggles. Take a good look at your TV antenna from the ground and note if any of the prongs are bent or rusted, if elements are missing and if it is facing a different direction than…
