Components of a great set up

Below are the most essential components required for a great home entertainment set up.

  • HD TV – The biggest thing that people deliberate about when buying a new TV is the size. Modern TVs are incredibly thin and can nearly always be wall-mounted, which means that you don’t need a huge living area to have a large TV. 32 inches is the average size for a TV but many people now actually find this to be too small for their tastes. It’s always advisable to view a TV before buying so you can see what the picture quality is like. A 4K TV is also something to consider although most people would agree that there isn’t currently enough 4K content available to justify the price.
  • Speakers – Speakers are a vital part of creating an enviable home entertainment experience. The sound you get straight from your TV will usually not be anything special so it’s always worth investing in some good quality speakers. If you want to save on money and space, then you might consider a sound bar instead.
  • Subscription to a streaming service – The two big players in the UK as far as streaming services goes are Netflix and Amazon Prime Instant Video. Both have a good selection of TV shows and films and are very affordable for most people (Amazon Prime Instant Video is free for Prime customers).
  • Good reception – There’s no point in having a HD TV if you’re not able to get a reliable signal. By far the best choice for getting a good signal is to get an outdoor aerial installed. Indoor aerials just don’t provide the same picture quality. Not only that but you need to find somewhere to place them to receive an optimum signal, which isn’t always practical.

How to be sure you choose a reputable TV aerial installer

If you don’t already have a digital TV aerial installed, then you’ll need to find somebody to install one for you. Whilst TV aerial installation in a regular property is usually not too big of a job, you still want to be sure you hire someone who’s reliable.

One of the best ways to find a reputable TV aerial installer is to hire someone who’s comes recommended. This isn’t always possible but you should ask friends and family members if they know of anyone. A personal recommendation is ideal because you know it’s not biased.

If you’re not able to find somebody based on personal recommendation then you can look online for a Digital TV aerial installation service in your local area. Someone who’s reputable will have testimonials from clients on their website and also be very easy to contact by phone or email.
