How to Install a TV Aerial Socket: Your Complete Guide
Get a grasp on installing a TV aerial socket with our extensive guide. From preparing your materials to troubleshooting, we've got you covered.
Depending upon the type of signal you wish to distribute, there are various solutions available. We can install extra sockets for both aerial and satellite TV systems – read on to learn more about the different TV point installations we offer.
Before adding any new TV aerial points to your existing system, we’ll measure your signal strength to check it’s strong enough to split between multiple outlets. If your signal strength is sufficient, we can install additional aerial sockets by connecting new lines to your existing system and splitting the signal between them.
Alternatively, if your signal is weak or you require more than one additional aerial point, we can install a distribution amplifier to split the signal without degrading signal quality, ensuring good reception for all connected devices.
At TV Aerial Specialists, we abide by and adhere to the standards set out by the Confederation of Aerial Industries (CAI) Codes of Practice and use only the highest quality, CAI-approved equipment, ensuring our TV point installations are completed to the highest possible standard.

Engineer “Sean” was punctual, polite, and very skilled. The problem was resolved quickly, without fuss. I would definitely recommend this company, the price charged was reasonable. Thank you, Sean, and TV Aerial Specialists !
Shaun gave us a very reasonable quote in the morning and was back that afternoon to wall mount our TV. He was very professional, friendly and honest and is an asset to your company. The job was done quickly and we are really impressed with the work. Would highly recommend!
Richard and Shaun came out to mount a tv and put an ariel into my loft for better quality. From ringing for a quote and carrying out the work it was very quick. They described everything to me and did a fantastic job. No mess and very professional. Highly recommended. I need some more work carried out in future and will be using this company again.
Shaun helped us both to install a new TV aerial point and mount a TV to a wall. Shaun was highly professional, knowledgeable and also good company, who explained each job step by step. The price was reasonable considering the job and we are very pleased with the work completed today.
Highly recommend! Needed a new TV aerial bracket as the previous one was poorly secured and rattled. Sean turned up on time, and gave a sensible quote to fix it there and then. Even looked at an aerial booster in the loft as some TVs couldn’t receive terrestrial channels. Completely satisfied and would definitely use again.

A TV point, socket, or outlet is one of the main components required to connect your TV aerial or satellite receiver system to your TV. It’s essentially a hole in the wall where you plug in your TV to get digital reception, including free-to-air channels. A TV point looks similar to an electrical wall socket, but with one round hole instead of three small rectangular holes.
Increasingly, households have more than one TV and require additional TV outlets. At TV Aerial Specialists, we’re pleased to offer fast and affordable TV point installation services throughout South Yorkshire, as well as the wider North West and Yorkshire area – call now on 0808 169 2929, or book an appointment online today.
There are various reasons for installing an extra TV point, including but not limited to:
Ultimately, installing an extra TV point gives you more options and flexibility, allowing you to position your television and access your favourite channels in the room/location of your choice.
While you can install a TV point almost anywhere, some places are better suited than others. Our experienced TV point installers consider the following factors when recommending where to install a new TV outlet:
Every time you connect another TV point to your existing receiver system, your signal strength is split. If your signal strength is weak or you’re installing more than one additional TV socket, this can result in reduced signal quality.
Fortunately, there are things we can do to preserve/enhance signal strength. Before installing any new TV points, our team will measure your signal to check it’s strong enough to split between multiple outlets. If your signal is too weak, we can install an amplifier or aerial booster to split the signal without degrading reception quality. This will ensure good reception for all connected devices, no matter how many TV points you require.
While in some cases it’s possible to install an additional TV outlet yourself, we highly recommend investing in the services of a professional TV point installer. Before attempting to fit an extra TV point, you should ask yourself the following questions:
Installing an additional TV point can be a complex task, especially if you haven’t done it before or you run into an unexpected problem. For your personal safety and guaranteed results, we strongly advise hiring a qualified technician to carry out the job.

Our South Yorkshire TV point installers travel with a wide range of industry-approved components, tools, and top-of-the-range equipment, meaning they can usually assess your requirements, provide a quote, and complete the installation in a single visit – whatever type of TV socket you need and wherever you wish to install it.
As a leading TV point installation company in South Yorkshire, we pride ourselves on providing quick and efficient solutions for our customers. In most cases, we can offer you an appointment the same day you get in touch, during which our experienced technicians will visit your property, assess your requirements, and provide you with a quote for the installation.

The time it takes to fit a new TV point is dependent on the complexity of the installation, meaning we cannot provide an accurate estimate until we’ve established what work needs to be done. That said, we generally recommend blocking off half a day to ensure we have enough time to complete the job to the highest standard.
The cost of installing an extra TV socket is dependent on many factors, including where it needs to be installed, who you choose to install it, and whether or not additional components are required (such as an amplifier). As every job is unique, we cannot provide an accurate estimate without visiting your property to assess your specific requirements. For this reason, we offer a site survey, during which a qualified technician will visit your home or business premises, test the signal available in your area, and explain the options available to you.
At TV Aerial Specialists, we’re committed to providing affordable extra TV point installation services. Our lowest price guarantee means in the unlikely event that you find an identical product or service cheaper elsewhere, we promise to beat it. That said, if you’re unhappy with our quote, decide not to go ahead, or need a little time to think about our proposal, that’s absolutely fine.
With sufficient signal strength, you can connect as many TV points as you like to your aerial, using a splitter. As their name suggests, aerial splitters are used to ‘split’ incoming signals from a single aerial and distribute them between multiple outlets. It’s important to note that sound and picture quality will be reduced the more times the signal is split, but if your TV reception is good or you are only installing one additional aerial socket, this might not be a problem.
In cases where the incoming signal is weak or multiple TV points are required, amplifiers or aerial boosters can be used to increase signal strength. This technique can be observed in large, communal TV systems, where hundreds of televisions can be connected to a single aerial.
If you’re looking to install a new TV aerial socket, the first thing you should do is contact a professional. Most installers will ask to visit your property to assess your requirements and check your signal strength, before providing you with a quote for the job.
A standard TV aerial point installation involves taking the cable that’s connected to your TV aerial and splitting the signal with a splitter or tap. Another cable can then be added, running from the splitter to where you want your new aerial point installed – either through an internal wall cavity, or along the surface of your wall. Using a connector, this cable will then be screwed into the new TV outlet – ready for you to plug in your TV. Finally, the engineer should test the connection, tune your TVs to make sure everything is working properly, and clean up any mess they have made.
If your signal strength is weak or you require multiple new aerial points, you may also need to install an amplifier. This will boost signal strength, ensuring good reception for all connected devices.
