A local, family run company with over 20 years experience in the tv aerial and satellite business. (Mike Senior was the former owner of the well known shop Satellite Showcase in Castleford when Sky first started broadcasting.)

Yorkshires leading installation company due to the fact that:

WE USE QUALITY COMPONENTS AT COMPETITIVE PRICES.

We are one of only a few companies that use genuine copper approved cable - accept no other - make sure it has WF100, RX100, TX100 or similar and NOT RG6 written on the cable, it makes a big difference. Most RG6 has not been tested and does not have the same screening qualities as copper approved cable, in other words it is rubbish!

When comparing prices, some companies may be using the cheapest components available or may not be replacing the bracket, pole and in some cases the cable, hence, giving a cheaper quote.

We also give an excellent guarantee that covers even the smallest of jobs.


Some very important things to ask an installer:

  1. Do they use digital CAI/RoHS approved copper screened coaxial cable? There is a difference with using cheap aluminium shielded RG6 cable, which may not be flame retardant, some RG6 is that bad I wouldn`t use it for washing line!

  2. Are they NVQ qualified Digital installers?

  3. Do they use galvanised brackets that resist rusting? (We DO NOT use cheaper painted ones.)

  4. Do they use the latest 4G/800 digital aerials? By making sure the TV aerial you are being sold is designed and manufactured to avoid any future mobile phone band interference.

  5. Is the pole they supply the thicker 16g or a thinner 18g side wall? We only use the thicker gauge aluminium 1.25" mast that will last longer.

  6. Do they have adequate insurance, if any at all, to work on your property at heights?


We are an approved Sky Digital installer and a leading Freesat retailer and supply TV aerials for BT vision and Talk Talk receivers.

We are also preferred contractors for district housing, major builders and building societies in the Yorkshire area.(CSCS registered.)
