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

Initially covering the PONTEFRACT and WAKEFIELD areas we now have a qualified engineer with over 15 years experience based in SHEFFIELD.

We consider ourselves to be one of Yorkshires leading TV aerial, satellite and tv wall mounting companies, because:

WE ONLY USE QUALITY COMPONENTS AT COMPETITIVE PRICES. (We are one of only a few companies that are using 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. RG6 is usually not tested and does not have the same screening as copper approved cable, in other words it is rubbish!)

Please be aware when comparing prices that 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.

Some very important things to ask an installer:

  1. Do they use digital CAI/RoHS approved copper screened coaxial cable on all your installations? There is a difference with using cheap aluminium shielded RG6 cable, which may not be even be flame retardant, and some RG6 is that bad I wouldn`t even 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. Make 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?

Areas that I cover: MOST OF YORKSHIRE.

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.)
