What to look for when choosing an indoor TV aerial
If you're particularly far from a signal transmitter, you may want to choose an aerial with a signal amplifier.
Another thing to consider is the size and shape of the aerial, as well as where it should be stored. Some aerials need to be attached to furniture, or a window, whereas others just sit next to the TV.
Otherwise, these aerials are generally simple to set up and use.
