I have recently moved to Hunmanby, about 2 weeks ago, and I cannot get all the TV channels I used to get when living on the Pennines. I have also had to purchase a new TV. When setting up I found many of the channels I used to view were missing. The notes in this article match the current performance of my new TV.
If I get a new 'digital' aerial from Screwfix will this correct the issue?
Will I need to install it pointing in another direction, compared to the current aerial, if so can you advise on the direction?
Regards.

David Sampson: The Humanby transmitter is a Freeview Lite relay which only provides a small number of channels. If you provide a full postcode we can check whether you may be able to receive more channels from another transmitter. Just buying a new aerial and pointing it at the same transmitter is unlikely to make any difference (there is no such thing as a digital aerial, it is a piece of metal which doesn't know or care if the signals being received are analogue or digital).

David Sampson:

I would also advise NOT to buy most types of aerial supplied by screwfix. A lot of them will be what the trade call "bacofoil" aerials. They are quite flimsy and it often only needs a few pigeons to land on them and bits are bent or broken will can adversely affect reception. Most will also tend to be wideband which will not have as good a gain as a grouped aerial which is what you are likely to need to stand a chance of getting reliable signals.

Some parts of Hunmanby MAY be able to receive signals from another transmitter, quite a few may not - that's why there's a relay transmitter. This is why a full postcode is needed to look at the predicted reception. It's possible that for some, signals may be received from 3 main transmitters BUT they will not always be reliable, especially with the wrong kind of aerial.
