Why include a new TV antenna install in your home?
Despite the fact that TV antennas are an important part of accessing free to air TV, few home builds include them as part of the initial package. Homeowners need to be savvy enough to request an installation so that they don’t miss out on all of the benefits a TV antenna can provide.
You can a have premium digital TV antenna installed that can cover both UHF and VHF signals so you’ll always have access to the television programming that you want.
If you’ve moved into a Sydney home with an existing antenna, it’s also important to note that you might not be receiving all of the benefits of digital TV if you are stuck with an older or analogue antenna. Analogue technology became obsolete in the early 2010s, but the switch resulted in a much broader variety and clearer picture for programming options. Relying on an older antenna could mean you are not getting the maximum value out of your free to air experience.
Can I install my own new TV antenna?
Many people mistakenly think that adding a new antenna is as simple as just screwing one into the beams on a roof. However, a lot of precision and accuracy are required for the job to be done right. A professional installer will be able to assess your exact location and determine not just the placement of the antenna for the best reception but also the best digital antenna for the job.
It’s also important to note that any job that involves getting on a roof for installation can be dangerous for the unpracticed homeowner. It’s much better – and safer – to trust the work to a professional. You can also make sure you don’t void any manufacturer’s warranties on the antenna itself by having it installed by a licensed professional.
How long does it take to install a new TV antenna?
From start to finish, you can expect the professionals to be able to complete this for you between 2-3 hours. This includes the time it takes to assess your roof and the different transmission signals that are available. This also include however long it will take for them to properly assemble and install the actual antenna in its place.
Keep in mind that there are some factors that can affect this average time it takes to complete. Accessibility and how difficult it is to maneuver on your roof can slow things down a bit, especially if workers need more tools to safely conduct themselves. It can also take longer to install if they need to add additional equipment such as boosters or if they are working with extended or high masts.
Are new digital TV antennas expensive?
Most installers will package together the exact digital antenna that you need for your reception and location along with the labour and materials for the job in a single quote. On average, this can land anywhere between $300-$700. Factors that affect the price of the job include:
- Type of property and installation access
- Equipment needed for installation
- Equipment needed for the antenna (booster, mast type, etc.)
- Number of TV points required
- Whether an older antenna needs to be removed
Newer digital TV antennas also come with much more robust warranties from the manufacturers. In some cases, these can be for the lifetime of the device. It’s important to consider that your investment in your home might have a little up-front cost but should last for decades, if not longer, with proper installation.

Frequently Asked Questions About New TV Antenna Installation in Sydney
Do I really need a new digital antenna?
Digital television offers a lot more advantages than the old school analogue options. Installing a new antenna or upgrading your existing one will give you better reception on the channels that you love without the price tag that comes with expensive internet packages for streaming.
Will I need a booster or amplifier with my antenna?
Boosters can help improve the signal that comes into the antenna in the first place. This can improve the overall quality of the picture that you see on your television. A professional installer should be able to assess the signal and reception at your home, placing the antenna in an optimal position. If they find that the signal is still weak, they may recommend an amplifier to help ensure you have the best quality experience.
What if I don’t want an antenna on my roof?
There are limited options for installing an antenna inside a roof space, but this is only recommended if your reception is exceptional. That’s because enclosing the antenna will block reception and make it harder for you to get a quality picture on your television. In most cases, it is recommended to go with an external antenna. If appearance and placement are super important to you, you can discuss this with your installer to try to find an unobtrusive area to place the antenna without sacrificing signal.
