    Had enough of NTL so planning to go the Freeview route. Unfortunately, where I live is on the fringe of the reception area. Called up the only nearby CAI installer and got quoted £360 (inc VAT) for a standard 1 aerial (DMX10A), omni FM, amplifier, chimney mount, 10M cable and sundries. Don't want to mess around if this is reasonable, but is it?

    Seems a bit steep. I paid £65 but did not include amplifier or mount.

    Much too steep even for a fringe area assuming you're not multi-room cabling. You must live in a very remote part of the world if there's only one CAI installer within range. Many installers will travel upwards of 30 miles so I suggest you broaden the search. By the way if anyone offers you a "digital" aerial for Freeview you should run a mile from them - there's no such thing.

    Paid £100 for mine including VAT.

    This was for arieal, cableing, fitting, plus two year warranty and to make sure that everything was tunned in ok.
