There is nothing worse in this world, than bringing your mates home on a Saturday to watch a game of cricket. Where the Aussies are ahead of the Brits, but you end missing a vital lbw (leg before wicket) decision due to bad reception. While this may be frustrating, the good news is, you can fix it. Here are 3 common reason for bad reception and how to fix it.

Wrong type of antenna

Generally speaking, there are two different types of antennas available. There are outdoor antennas and indoor antennas. Outdoor antennas are recommended for people living a good distance away from the broadcast tower. Where indoor antennas are prefered by individuals living in cities or in places where mounting an outdoor antenna is not possible. If you select the wrong antenna for your area, then you may experience bad reception. To ensure you have a suitable antenna, contact a TV antenna installation company.

Wireless interference 

Wireless devices, such as routers tends to give out radio waves that not only disperse your TV signal but also create poor wireless internet connection. This is a very common mistake carried out by a number of people, but it’s also very easy to fix. Simply move your router away from your TV and see if it fixes your reception. If not call a TV antenna installation company.

Interference from walls or other obstructions

Obstructions such as thick walls play a major part in the quality of television reception a person is receiving from the broadcast tower. The thicker the wall the weaker the signal will become on the other side. By placing your antenna near a window, you can avoid such obstructions and achieve crisp high quality reception that you desire.
