We’ll then then supply and install the latest equipment to enable the best possible digital reception giving you a ‘digitally connected’ lifestyle at the touch of a button.
In Late 2013 television in New Zealand underwent the biggest change since colour was introduced in 1974 - the switch from analogue TV to a digital transmission system called Freeview TV. You have two ways of receiving the Freeview digital signal:
Available nationwide via satellite dishes.
Freeview Satellite TV harnesses new transmission technology to deliver perfect digital Freeview TV picture quality anywhere in New Zealand, along with continuity in picture reception and no interference.
A professionally installed satellite dish system is essential to take advantage of Freeview’s digital satellite platform. The signal comes into your house through this dish via a satellite TV system installed by Vision’s technicians and will give you access to TV and radio channels via the Optus D1 satellite.
Land based transmission in the main centres only - via UHF aerials.
Since 2008 New Zealand’s main TV channels have screened selected programmes in High Definition (HD). In the South Island Freeview HD is available to homes that can receive good quality UHF aerial signals from the Mount Cargill transmitter in Dunedin, Forest Hill transmitter in Invercargill, Sugarloaf transmitter in Christchurch, Mt Campbell transmitter in Nelson and Cave Hill transmitter in Timaru.
HD offers up to four times better picture resolution than the old analogue TV signal. It produces smoother motion and richer, more natural colours that take full advantage of your TV’s potential. HD also provides 5.1 surround sound which is required for realising the potential of Home Theatre systems.
A professionally installed HD UHF aerial system is essential for reliable viewing of Freeview channels. The location of the UHF aerial on your home is critical to maximise reception and picture quality. Our technicians signal test on your house with state of the art HD Digital test meters to ensure the best quality picture is received.
