I live in a flat or housing with a communal aerial. Can I still get Freeview?

Posted March 25, 2013 - Reception aerials and coverage

If you live in a flat or a building which shares an aerial then talk to your neighbours to find out if they receive Freeview and what the reception is like. If they get good reception then it’s likely that you will too. If they’re not seeing a perfect picture, then the communal aerial might need to be checked by your landlord.

If you don’t quite know what kind of aerial the building has got, or you suspect it hasn’t got an aerial at all, then speak to your landlord.

If you need more advice, we suggest you get in touch with either the Confederation of Aerial Industries (CAI) or Get Me Digital who can give you details of one or more members who operate in your area and guarantee their work:
