If you live within a 15 miles radius of the nearest transmitter, you can choose to have an indoor or outdoor aerial. Both will have optimal reception, but an indoor aerial is definitely easier to install as you don’t have to mount it. Do always check specifications to see the exact reach of each indoor aerial as there are aerials with a reach of 3 miles, 9 miles and 15 miles.
DVB-T, DVB-T2, DAB+ and Freeview signal
What else should you be aware of when buying a digital aerial?
DVB-T / Freeview TV
Current standard for TV signals is DVB-T, including Freeview. In the near future, the standard will be updated to DVB-T2 with increased quality like HDTV and 3D. When buying an aerial nowadays, it is recommended to purchase a future proof aerial that is ready for DVB-T2. All One For All aerials are ready for DVB-T2.
Current standard to receive radio signals is a DAB+ aerial, which is integrated in most DVB-T aerials. Therefore most aerials do support DAB+ digital radio signals and DVB-T/DVB-T2 signals.
The mobile telephone networks 4G/LTE partly use the same bandwidth as DVB-T and therefore might create interference that dilutes the clearness of the signal. One For All aerials have a build-in LTE/4G filter to take away this interference, ensuring crystal clear reception. Please make sure to check specifications to find out if the aerial has a build-in 4G/LTE filter.
