Thanks for your response.
We have a TV upstairs with an aerial so I suppose we're OK in the TV department then.
Right, time to cancel my TV package and landline...
Two things I would say if you are doing this:
1) Dropping services removes a lot of discount you currently have on your Broadband. Virgin are far from being the cheapest Broadband only provider, so if you do have any operators in your area providing FTTC or particularly newer FTTH services there are some very cheap deals around at the moment.
2) If you don’t have a TV aerial outlet downstairs, then you may need the help of an aerial installer. Go for one that is CAI+ accredited as these are more likely to do a decent job. While there may be a lot of tempting set-top type aerials about, most of these are not worth the money. While you may be paying for something that looks “space age” & has lots of claims about outperforming other products, you are usually just paying for the powered amplifier in the bottom that is actually making up for the poor design up top. Unless you are within 10 miles of the local transmitter & have a window to put it in that faces the right way, then you would be far better just getting someone in & getting the job done properly. Cost £100 to £125 for new kit. Prospective working life up to 25 years if fitted correctly. An amplified set-top aerial would probably last about 2-3 years of regular use before it needs replacement.
