"But Freeview HD isn't available here!"

Yeah, it's something we hear, all the time!

So, it's time we set the record straight...

 

Much of urban Whakatane has official Freeview HD coverage, which conversely benefits many other parts of our patch of paradise too.

 

But, why should I use you guys?

​Two words. Integrity and dedication, because...

  • we put in the hard yards, through stringent UHF site testing, throughout the Eastern Bay. 

  • we've used (and know how to use) the right test equipment

  • we use the best antennae for your location

  • we have extensive local knowledge

  • we know what works, what doesn't, and where

  • we've got a friendly can-do attitude

  • we get the job done, right - first time

  • We'll treat you right!

Freeview: UHF aerial, satellite or live streaming?

Freeview offer three options for receiving their service: via UHF Antenna, satellite dish and live streaming.

 

The UHF service, known as Freeview|HD, is essentially Freeview's premium offering. This is by far the best option for live TV viewing, where available. Here you can find all the available Freeview channels - many in High Definition. Even the non-HD channels tend to look better than satellite due to more modern compression techniques. It doesn't suffer rain-fade, and in almost every case, you can ditch your Freeview box & remote too, as most TVs bought in NZ that are less than 8 years old have Freeview|HD inbuilt. This is also the best option if decent broadband isn't available, or you're not on an unlimited plan with your internet provider.

The satellite service is just that - a service. It's designed to give coverage to areas outside the UHF towers, but because of the satellite's configuration, there are no HD channels, and the picture quality especially on larger screens, we think is pretty average at best.

 

However, by combining the live streaming option with the satellite option, you get more channels, most of which are in HD - along with access to a wide range of ondemand services like, YouTube, Netflix, Neon, TVNZ OnDemand, Spark Sport, Sky Sport Now, etc...

Freeview|HD or a combination of live streaming and satellite, really are the only choices when you have a TV screen larger than 40 inches, especially when sharp, vibrant pictures and crystal-clear digital sound is the reason you bought it, right? Freeview in high definition is delivered to much of NZ, and is solely received via aerial or live streaming. Additional channels, not available via live streaming, can be obtained through the satellite option as a combo.

Because we reckon you deserve the best, we'll test almost anywhere in the Eastern Bay for a quality, High Definition UHF signal. In fact, many of our customers, from Waiotahi Sands to Otakiri (along with many other places) now enjoy the quality of reception, that up to now, only metro areas have been able to obtain. Seeing is believing. Call us now for more info!

Freeview|HD is our primary installation option for live TV. However, should the signal not be available at your place, or you require ondemand services too, we'll happily offer  a combo of Freeview's live streaming and satellite for you instead.
