Do outdoor antennas need an amplifier?
No. There’s a good reason why your digital antenna installation doesn’t come with an amplifier by default. Amplifiers can cause problems if you don’t need them or if they’re not used properly.
Does antenna amplifier really work?
TV aerial amplifiers and signal boosters do work. They can help overcome signal losses because of cable resistance and because of the splitting of signals to multiple TVs. However, they won’t miraculously convert a poor or weak TV signal into a good, reliable signal. When used right, they can fix your signal issues.

How many tvs can you have on one aerial?
For households, we recommend keeping to your aerial splitter. For most of the installations we’ve handled, the signals were strong enough to power two to three TV sets in the home without needing an amplifier.
Why is my outdoor antenna not picking up channels?
