Freeview / Freesat

Freeview / Freesat

Freeview is a brand name for the type of digital TV which you can receive using a normal TV aerial. Being digital TV the Freeview picture quality is normally crystal clear and there are quite a number of Freeview channels available.

Freesat is similar to to Freeview with a similar range of free to air digital TV channels available. The difference between Freeview and Freesat is that Freesat is received using a satellite dish rather than a TV aerial. Freesat is particularly useful in areas of poor reception or low signal strength as it is not affected by the terrain or distance from the TV transmitter in the same way as Freeview is. All it requires is direct line of sight to the orbiting satellite.

Chapmans are experts in all things Freeview and Freesat. We first opened our doors as a family business back in 1925 so have 90 years of experience in the industry. It is still a family business today, based in Cradley Heath in the heart of the Black Country, near Birmingham, West Midlands. We retain the core values we had when the doors first opened of honesty, integrity and a commitment to providing a quality service.

Our Freeview or Freesat installation service is second to none. We cover most of Birmingham and the West Midlands region, including neighbouring Dudley, Wolverhampton, West Bromwich, Stourbridge, Brierley Hill and Halesowen, but also further afield such as Solihull, Walsall, Shrewsbury, Worcester and Sutton Coldfield. It’s fair to say that if you require a professional Freeview installation anywhere in Birmingham and the West Midlands we can come to you.

We can advise on Freeview or Freesat receivers or set top boxes, depending on your needs and supply one which suits you. You may want to be able to receive Freeview HD or be able to record several channels at the same time whilst watching something different.

We can also advise on the siting for the aerial or satellite dish for your property. For Freeview, depending on the frequency the Freeview signal is broadcast at in your area, we can advise whether you will need to swap your existing TV aerial for one which can receive those frequencies better. We’ll know more after we’ve had a look so please call to discuss your needs and arrange for an engineer to visit.
