A.T.V  have been trading in Sheffield since 1994, initially selling and repairing TVs (this side of the business ceased in 2010). The shop was opened in 1996 and we entered the aerial trade in 2000. The web site was started in 2005, we began selling by mail order in 2006 due to so many requests from our readers !

A.T.V are members of  Retra.

Welcome to the ATV

website, it`s probably the most extensive aerials site on the Internet and in 2014 we had 400,000 visitors with over a million page hits. In fact even “the trade” use this site. Actually, even we use it if we want to check up on anything to do with aerials !

Scholars welcome !

If you`re just browsing our site out of a general interest in TV & radio reception you`re more than welcome, although you`re obviously even more welcome if you actually buy something from us !

However, to be frank, those using our site, discovering they need to buy something, and then buying it elsewhere,

are a little bit less welcome.

If you`ve found this site informative we`d be grateful for links onto it from other websites, this will help to increase the site`s search engine ranking and encourage more visitors.

Many people learn a lot from our site, in fact there is no more comprehensive source of information on aerials. Many others just need a solution to a problem and a considerable number of them find they don`t actually need to buy anything (e.g. just take the amplifier out of the circuit), for those who feel they`d like to acknowledge this any donations towards the costs of the website (mainly large amounts of time…..) please use the button below :
