T.V. Antenna.

Hugo Barr asked 3 years ago

Hi People, my new tenants are very upset that they cannot get there "Freeview-Box" to work. Apparently this uses an antenna. The location of the flat (next to the railway) meant that before the wonders of cable/satellite t.v. we always had problems with the t.v. reception, and so were delighted to install fibre-optic cable t.v. when it came 20 years ago. So in the flat there is a functioning cable internet/phone/t.v. connection and an old analog t.v. socket which has been unused for 20 years. I have explained all of this to the agency I use but they insisted on sending a contractor round to troubleshoot. He has given me a quote of £250 to erect an antenna. So my question is am I duty-bound to pay for this? I have read that if there is an analog t.v. socket then it should work. What is the case if there is also a working cable t.v. connection? I really don't want an ugly great antenna at the property and it seems a great expense just to appease my new tenant!!! Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all, Hugo.
