A communal TV system provides television to a number of users from a single aerial or set of satellite dishes. They serve properties like tower blocks or estates of houses and are also used in areas where planning constraints restrict the use and number of roof top aerials and satellite dishes.
The benefits of a communal TV system are; added value to the building structure and services reduction or elimination of the need for individual aerials and satellite dishes and associated health and safety issues. Minimise disputes with tenants and also meets planning guidelines.
In recent years ABC Aerials have built up a massive list of clients who require our services installing and maintaining large communal aerial systems.
Currently much of our work is installing and maintaining existing communal systems for digital reception. If you live in a block of flats and have an aerial system, why not contact us for a free estimate to upgrade it for digital reception.
Q: Why use fibre optic
A: With Fibre optics we can install your satellite dish at a much greater distance away from your property than with conventional copper co-ax.
Another benefit of using fibre optic cabling in commercial applications is the abillity to add to or extend the system without the need to change the dish setup and no limit on the number of outlets.
We offer free planning and design of new communal systems. We can also advise and install the latest technology in order to achieve the very best system for your individual requirements.
