No TV reception? Antenna installation from Melbourne’s Briggs Electrical

“Good evening, and welcome to television.”

These six words transport many of us back to the mid-50s, where Bruce Gyngell introduced television to Australia.

Television has had a phenomenal history in Australia. Through the 1960s, it expanded throughout the country, particularly to regional areas, and colour television was introduced on 1 March 1975.

Fast-forward to the new millennium, when digital television began making waves (pun intended).

Throughout the next decade, television networks made the permanent switch to digital signals (from analogue), and we too took part in the digital television transition in order to access these new digital channels.

Antenna installation

In order to access the multitude of digital channels available across Australian television networks, a household requires an external antenna, typically professionally installed on the roof (but in some cases in an attic). Antenna installation from Briggs means you can enjoy high quality digital television in any room of the house!

How much does it cost to install an antenna in Melbourne?

It is hard to provide a general answer to this question, as, just like every other kind of domestic electrical service in Melbourne, each job is unique. There are a range of factors that can impact the cost, from placement and location to the exact repairs required.

Our friendly domestic electricians in Melbourne will gladly discuss your specific requirements and provide a detailed quote before any work begins. Contact us today to book an on-site inspection.

Poor reception? Consider antenna removal

What’s causing this poor reception?

There are a number of factors that can influence the quality of your television reception. It normally boils down to one (or a combination) of the following:

  • Obstructions block your antenna from nearby transmission towers
  • Electrical appliances are interfering TV reception (large appliances like washing machines or hot water systems)
  • Your current antenna is damaged or outdated
  • Your television is old (you might struggle to get the newest digital channels)
  • Your antenna is not securely installed on your roof

Oftentimes when you are suffering poor reception or just purchased a new television, it’s not worth repairing an old antenna.

More often than not, it’ll be advised that you choose a new antenna that can be installed safely at the correct height and position, delivering your household exceptional picture and audio quality.

Briggs will help you with not only your new antenna installation, but can also safely remove an old one.

Tune in to digital television

Older antennas mightn’t pick up the quality that digital television wants to provide you. You also might have missed out on some of the newer channels, simply because of an older (or faulty) antenna.

Once we’ve installed your antenna, we’ll tune your television and make sure you can access all those great free-to-air channels.

Do domestic electricians fix TV antennas?

Yes! Our skilled domestic electricians have the knowledge and tools to diagnose and resolve problems with TV antennas.

The result is a clear and uninterrupted viewing experience for you and your family.

First, we’ll conduct a thorough inspection of the antenna and its components to identify any visible damage or connectivity issues.

Next, we’ll test the signal strength and quality using specialised equipment. Based on our findings, we’ll proceed with the necessary repairs, which may involve fixing or replacing damaged parts, adjusting the antenna’s position, or improving cable connections.


Finally, we’ll conduct a comprehensive test to ensure that the repaired antenna is functioning optimally, providing you with a clear and reliable TV signal.
