TV Antenna Tweed Heads

Hi I’m David Levine of Iwire Antennas and if your TV Antenna has an issue you can call me to help. I live in Kingscliff of Tweed Heads so am just around the corner from you.

I’ve been servicing the local area since 2000 and as such have a broad knowledge of what works and what doesn’t in the Tweed.  Being a single operator with no employees it is I who will come see you.


Tweed Heads region as you are aware is quite diverse in its geography. From beaches to hills and mountains.  And in between shopping centres and town centres which all can make a difference when it comes to what TV Antenna will work best from your location.

Here are some types of  TV antenna that may look familiar to you if you live in Tweed Heads.


With each job you get a:

  • 14 Day Money Back Guarantee
  • No Fix No Pay*
  • 3 Year Replacement Warranty on Most major parts
  • 2 Year Service Warranty

If you are experiencing picture break up, loss or pixilation there can be many reasons for this.   I am often asked to diagnose Tv Antenna problems over the phone. Despite living in Tweed Heads and knowing the area very well it is not easy to determine a fault this way.

To help explain the potential problems with your Television reception I often relate a an analogy of your TV Reception being like a length of chain. When any one or more links could be weak or broken affecting your TV Antenna final reception .  The only true way to find out is for you to book a service call with me so I can put on my detective hat and start investigating the reasons.

When you book in a service visit with me I can usually help fix your TV Antenna or reception issue on the spot especially if you live in Tweed Heads region.

I carry on board in the van several different antenna varieties as well as a range of other needed products to make sure you get the absolute best TV reception you can for your suburb of Tweed Heads.  Parts such as masthead amplifiers commonly known as booster, power supplies and antenna mounts.

Black Spot Tv Reception Areas

In Tweed Heads shire there are numerous Black Spot Tv Reception areas. For these areas there is another way I can help you get free to air digital TV.  The way I can help you is through a service called VAST.  VAST is a Free to Air Satellite Service.

Should you live in a known Black Spot Television area of Tweed Heads then the first step to getting VAST installed is to apply for registration through the Australian Gvt  “My Switch” program.


Note.  VAST ABC and SBS are available to all Australians anywhere you live but commercial channels are only available to those who cannot receive normal digital TV reception through terrestrial means (Tv Antenna).

Try Fix it Yourself 

Perhaps you’d like to have a go fixing your own TV reception? Sure give it a go. I must warn you though it often leads to more faults being found if we are eventually called in which means it can be more costly. However if you choose to have a go then Iwire offers you some FREE self help information here.

Iwire Antennas for the Best TV Antenna and Aerial Installations and Service in Tweed Heads


Why Does Pixelation Happen in Tweed Heads and What Can be Done About It?

Whether you live in Tweed Heads, Currumbin, Coolangatta, Tugun, Elanora, Currumbin Valley or Banora Point, pixilation is when your tv picture breaks up into little squares and you hear blips and blurps instead of clear sound.  Your television reception is governed by the signal strength and quality of data that your television receives through your digital TV antenna or aerial. So to get you perfect TV reception from your aerial or antenna certain criteria must be met.

Some Causes Of Pixelation

You need a certain minimum signal to carry the data from your aerial to your TV.  If your signal is not high enough then the data to give you a good clear picture cannot make it through.  This can definitely affect your tv reception.

Then there is the data that I just mentioned.  It is the mathematics behind telling your television how to make the picture and sound.  If there is data missing then you will get pixelation as the TV goes from data it can read, past the missing data and back to the data it can read.

Over signal is another cause of pixelation and poor tv reception.  Often I find installations where clearly no signal amplifier is needed but one has been installed.  It could be that someone other than a TV antenna Installer has done the job or the homeowner or a unscrupulous TV antenna man…or some ill-informed or under trained installers like some franchise operators trying to take over the industry.

Has Your TV Antenna Man Got experience Or Someone Who Just Bought Into A Franchise?

Clearly there are now franchise operators in our area who read the marketing of the head franchisor and thought it a good idea to own their own business under the flag of the franchisor. There may be some of those operators who actually know what they are doing but it is more likely they have been trained to work for the head franchisor.  Similarly with some pay tv installers. They’ve been trained to just install and do not know what’s involved with television antennas and how to get great TV reception.

David Levine of Iwire Antennas A Local Owner Operator Specialising in TV Antennas Since 2000

Iwire Antennas is owned and operated by me… David Levine and has been since 2000.  Having  moved to Northern NSW in 1998 then in 2011 moved into the Tweed.  I have been carrying out digital television aerial antenna installations repairs and services I started specializing in TV Antenna Aerial reception work in 2000 and since then have focused even more to Tweed Heads, Currumbin, Coolangatta, Tugun, Elanora, Currumbin Valley or Banora Point.

Since specializing in TV antennas in 2000 analog TV has gone by the wayside in Australia and as you know digital TV is here to stay.  Some people complain that they’d prefer to have analog because the new digital causes them pixilation.  Thing is can you imagine how awful your TV picture would be watching a 60” TV on analog? It would be blurry and pretty much out of focus and no surround sound of course.


No Fix No Pay*

Clear and perfect TV reception is something I specialize in and if I cannot get you perfect picture then I do not charge!* conditions apply.

I have some customers ask if I can get them perfect TV reception by installing a new or repairing their antenna. Depending if they live in Including Tweed Heads, Currumbin, Coolangatta, Tugun, Elanora, Currumbin Valley or Banora Point can make a difference and where within that area they are.  Perhaps their neighbor has no trees around them but your house is surrounded by lots of them so thick no signals can get through.  The only true way is for you to make a  booking and for me to come out and test your location.

I still Can’t get Good TV Reception

To get the best TV reception when you have a thicket of trees surrounding you or if you are in a low spot or valley or behind a hill in the shadows of your television transmission signals then there is always the VAST free to air satellite service.  VAST is only available to those who genuinely cannot get good digital TV reception.  Throughout the border towns be it Tweed Heads, Currumbin, Coolangatta, Tugun, Elanora, Currumbin Valley or Banora Point.
