HELP AVAILABLE: Free services offered to Abbots residents struggling with TVs

 Published on: 26th September 2021   |   By: Jake Levison   |   Category: Uncategorized

A company is helping residents for free as works to improve mobile networks in Abbots Langley may cause interference to TV received through an aerial such as Freeview, BT, TalkTalk and YouView.  

Symptoms could include intermittent sound, blocky images (pixilation) or loss of TV signal, so Restore TV, an independent programme which ensures people can continue to enjoy free to view TV when mobile is upgraded in their area, is providing free support.

Restore TV provides help to anyone experiencing interference to TV services caused by mobile signals. It offers additional support for people who are 75 years of age or older, are registered blind or partially sighted or receive any of the following benefits: personal independence payments (PIPs); attendance allowance; constant attendance allowance or War Pensioner’s Mobility Support. 

Ben Roome, CEO of Restore TV, said: “If you see new TV interference, we’re on hand to help you resolve the issue. We can send a Restore TV filter, free of charge, for you to fit between your aerial lead and TV or set-top box to remove mobile signals and allow you to watch free to view TV as normal.

“In most instances, fitting the filter will resolve any issues, but if this isn’t the case, we may also be able to arrange a follow-up visit from a Restore TV engineer at no cost, depending on eligibility.” 

Cable and satellite TV, such as Sky or Virgin, are not affected. However, viewers with these services, who also watch free to view TV through an aerial, can receive a free Restore TV filter.  

Any viewers who experience new interference to free to view TV should contact Restore TV on 0808 13 13 800 (free from landlines and mobiles) or
