As one of the most popular devices used in transmission of signal to produce images, the aerial has evolved massively. From big and bulky to small and sleek. But where did we start?

The first development of the TV Aerial dates all the way back to the 1830s. It was not until 1886 that Henry Hertz created the very first wireless “dipole antenna”. This was used to produce an electrical current to create the motion.

Fast forward to the early 1900s and the transmission of signal across wires and within a cage was achieved! This meant that through small distances information could be transferred. What seemed a small accomplishment actually paved the way for the advanced functionality we now see in our aerials.

In 1952, the UK provided their houses with the novelty “H” aerial which sat on the roof tops. Not only did this revolutionise home life it paved the way to enjoying films in the front room with family.

Then came the Patch Antenna in 1970, this was lighter and most commonly known for being used in the mobiles. This new development made it fast and cheaper for reproduction.

From here on the aerial has evolved and changed to what we have today. With such a wide range of aerial available it is easier than ever to have access to the advanced technology in your own home. Of course, even now, the aerial choice will cause different picture quality from your dish.

If you are looking to invest into your home then a faster cable speed would be perfect for you. If you only want standard viewing you can obtain a regular cable.

All cables and aerials, today, are designed to produce a faster transfer of information across networks.

The comparison of advancement over the years is groundbreaking, and that’s why we do not want you to be lost in the times! Kiss goodbye to pricey subscriptions and limited options and say hello to fast forwarding, rewinding, recording and pausing your telly! Find and watch the shows you love without the fees.
