With the advent of video on demand, YouTube and paid streaming services like Netflix, having an aerial doesn’t seem like a necessity.
Or is it? You could be missing out on these 4 features an aerial can bring to your home:
One of the main reasons why you should have a TV aerial installation is the local channel selection. You won’t find them anywhere else- not in streaming platforms, and only selectively online.
If local channels and its charm appeals to you, then an aerial becomes a must-have. The programs you get from them are timely, relevant and cater to your specific city or region.
News, Events and Weather
Keeping on top of current events has become a daily routine for some people. They read the newspapers, turn on the radio or switch the TV on and listen to the program while going about their chores and tasks.
An aerial is a great way to get weather updates and announcements in your city. It works even when the internet goes down and you only need to pay for the unit and installation.
Sports fans will feel out of place without an aerial connected to their TV. YouTube will only show highlights and post-production of the latest games (due to copyright), and it doesn’t happen in real time.
Experience total immersion when watching a game unfold live. You simply switch your TV on, go to the required channel, prepare the snacks and drinks and settle on the couch.
Top Rated Shows
Major broadcast stations still have an ace up their sleeve- their top rated prime time shows that are unavailable anywhere else. Chances are that you won’t find them on YouTube or VODs; they’re exclusive and may be viewed when you go to their channel.
The only downside is that you have to follow a schedule, but where else can you watch the show’s latest episode?
