Aerial Services are experts in all aspects of Freeview installation for Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire and the surrounding areas.

The digital switchover took place in 2012 and now all TV signals in the UK are broadcast in digital quality. This has improved the TV viewing and audio experience for many viewers in Hertfordshire and provided Freeview in some areas like Chesham, Bovingdon, Berkhamstead and Kings Langley for the first time.

To receive a quality digital TV signal you will need a digital TV aerial and either a TV with Freeview already included (IDTV – Integrated Digital TV) or a separate Freeview box.

If you need to upgrade your aerial to receive digital channels then we can help you. We have access to the very best digital TV aerial equipment and can help you receive the best signal to enhance your viewing and listening experience.

We can install your new Freeview-compatible digital aerial with all the fittings and brackets needed at an affordable price so that you can enjoy the quality programming that Freeview has to offer.



Freesat started in 2007 and is similar to Freeview apart from needing a satellite dish rather than a TV aerial to receive the signal. There is no contract or monthly bill with Freesat and it remains the UK’s only subscription –free satellite service.

There are over 200 TV and radio channels to choose from, including all the terrestrial channels, and there are new HD channels emerging all the time, improving the entertainment experience for all the users of Freesat.

To enjoy Freesat you will need a TV with an inbuilt Freesat tuner or a separate Freesat box. There’s an excellent selection of Freesat boxes to choose from and they contain many great features:

  • Freesat HD – More than 200 channels to choose from including superb quality HD content
  • Freesat+HD – same as above but also includes an inbuilt hard drive recorder to pause and rewind live TV and designed for your ultimate convenience.
  • Freesat+HD Freetime – More than 200 channels to enjoy, hard drive recorder and Smart functionality with extremely popular Catchup and On Demand services so that you can watch all those programmes that you missed the first time around.

Freesat is an exceptionally popular service and works well as an alternative to Freeview, especially in parts of the UK where TV aerial signals are not so robust. Freesat’s variety of added features also makes it an all-around attractive product for the viewer.
