Antenna repairs

Old analogue antennas should receive digital TV just fine. But if antenna is over ten years old or you live in the area with poor TV reception such as Bayview, Palm Beach or anywhere north of Mona Vale (Sydney Northern Beaches) then intermittent pixelation, breaking up of picture or sound can happen. In such cases, antenna fixing or upgrading to a digitally-optimised antenna may be required for a perfect digital picture. Antenna repairs price start from $150. Upgrades to new antennas price start from $200, including parts and labour.

Switching Foxtel to free to air antenna

Have you disconnected Foxtel or moved to the new house but free to air antenna is not working? We can fix it. There is no need to run new antenna cables. We can utilise unused Foxtel cables to get antenna signal through to all TVs in the house. Foxtel cables are the same or better RG6 type then antenna cables. New houses usually have coax cables running everywhere. But not all cables used as you’d have to pay for Foxtel box in each room. The tricky part is to sort out which cable is which, repair or install new TV antenna if required, and feed free to air signal to the coax cables properly. It may take only an hour to fix, and you all set to watch free to air channels.

Two things to know for switching Fox cables to antenna:

  • 1. Do you intend to use Foxtel or Optus in the room where you want free to air antenna?
  • 2. Do you have or plan to use Telstra or Optus internet via coax cable, so called NBN over HFC ?
  • The Internet may come through the same coax cable as pay TV. In some house and strata units, Foxtel and free to Air TV runs through the same cable by design. But more often NBN comes through the telephone line and is not related to coax cabling. We'll to make sure internet or remaining pay-TV services are uninterrupted.

Switching over to digital TV

In 2013 Australia made a switch to digital TV.
Metro Sydney and Gosford analogue TV broadcast, were switched off on 31 December 2013.

To watch digital free-to-air TV broadcast, you’ll need one of the following:

  • a digital set-top box
  • a TV with built-in digital tuner
  • a digital TV Recorder such as hard drive or DVD recorder
  • Optus fetch tv box
  • Telstra T-Box
