Freeview Digital Antenna Systems

Freeview Digital TV Still Requires an Antenna.

In some cases your existing antenna can be used for digital TV.  There are many  antenna systems that are very old and inadequate for digital.  If your antenna is more than 10 years old it's very likely you will need some work on your antenna or cabling to bring it up to standard.   Some people say there's no such thing as a digital antenna, they're usually the ones selling substandard antennas.  A Digital Antenna is one designed specifically for the digital channels you are trying to pickup.  In Melbourne that means an antenna designed to pickup Band3 and Band 4 ie channels 6-12 and 21-35.  Any antenna designed for Analogue (Channel 1-5a ) and FM will be more prone to pickup of electrical interference and is not ideal for digital.
