    Hi guys, i have just cancelled my sky subscription and have bought a Youview box. I did not notice that my new house has no aerial!:facepalm:

    My best transmitter is the Wrekin and i live near Oswestry (welsh border) If any one can point me in the right direction t would be great, thanks.

    Prediction for SpecSavers in the Town suggest Sutton Coldfield would be better than The Wrekin from an interference point of view ... but your precise address may well differ and make The Wrekin the correct choice to tune to. Coverage Checker - Detailed View

    The two transmitters are not that far apart, bearing wise, and both may be picked up well with a single wideband or group K aerial aerial... DO also read the 'planning your installation' section of the ATV website which will help guide you through a d-i-y install.

    If you call in a professional check out the trusted trader section of your trading standards office - but a personal recommendation from a friend, work colleague or family menber, is always the best.

    The traditional advice was to point it in the same direction as everyone else :)

    Though not everybody has one now, so it's not so easy.

    If it's on a pole, it is probably easy enough to rotate if it's not perfect.
