How Can You Wall Mount a TV When There Is No Wall To Attach It To?

Grant from Jim’s Antennas Kingborough likes a challenge.  A Hobart customer asked him mount their TV over an alcove built into an old fire place.
They had tried to mount the TV on swing arm mount themselves but could not find any thing solid mount too. The alcove was originally intended for a much smaller TV and was plaster over a light weight timber framework.
The solution was to use a Hills Fix-Picture Style TV mount and design and build a timber frame that was able to support the weight of the tv and fix this into the alcove. The pictures show the alcove, the timber frame and the very neat finished result.
Grant’s customers were very happy that they had called Jim’s Antennas to solve their problem.

Wind Damage To Antennas – Fix It Early To Avoid Disaster!

Antenna problems caused by wind can sometimes mean more than just a flickering picture.  Time and cumulative weather affects can cause catastrophic failures as shown – this was a 30 foot mast bent like cardboard after a recent wind storm.  Spring can be a time of year that sees increased winds and therefore increased danger of a failure. 
With a new digital antenna, not only do you get the best possible picture from the latest generation of 4G filtered LTE Antennas, in most cases there is no longer the need to have that unsightly large mast and wire system on your roof.  The pictured tripod mount replaced the previous 30 foot mast at this home and is now providing crystal clear high definition digital free to air television.

Robina Hospital Digital Upgrade

Jim’s Antennas – The Digital TV Specialists – were recently called upon to resolve issues the Robina Hospital Health Precinct were experiencing.

Gavin, the franchisor for Brisbane and the Gold Coast, who has over 10years experience was tasked with resolving the issue.

Although the building was less than 5 years old the existing system was set up without the digital restack in mind. As the final part of the Australian change to digital TV, the digital restack moved many broadcast channels to free up frequencies that are to be sold as part of the digital dividend.

While this generally happened without incident some commercial installations became redundant and needed replacement.

Gavin inspected the existing installation and quickly determined the problem. Even though it was a straight forward problem the solution was the need for complete replacement. Gavin prepared a detailed quote for approval and once approved he quickly installed the replacement equipment and restored […]

TV Reception Is Not Critical – Until It Stops!

Great TV reception is one of those things in life that doesn’t seem all that important….until it stops working.

When it stops working customers expect Jim’s Antennas to turn up promptly, fix the digital TV reception issues and have the TV working as good or better than it was before.

This has been best exemplified with a new TV antenna installation in Hillarys by Jim’s Antennas very own local team member Tony.

TV antennas are now much less intrusive in the roof landscape as they are much smaller with much improved design.

In this case Jim’s Antennas have installed a Hills Black Arrow Antenna for perfect TV reception in Perth including here in Hillarys.

Thanks to Jim’s Antennas this customer has nothing to worry about for a long time to come.

How Do I Get Netflix Onto My TV?

Netflix is taking over Australia, with current stats showing that it has already beaten Foxtel for market share. And why not? Starting at only $8.99 per month with no contracts and thousands of TV shows and movies, it’s a low-cost option to keep every member of the family entertained.
