I received a quotation of £215 including VAT and 12 months guarantee but still think this is very expensive! Do I need an outdoor aerial or would it be ok just using an indoor one. Also, what if I was to install the aerial myself after purchasing one from Argos? Would it be ok

Stephen p my postcode is IG11 9JD, I'm not sure whether or not an indoor one would be ok or if I should definatly get an outdoor one. I received two more quotes £70-£100 to fit an outdoor aerial but I don't think they're approved installers.- does that matter?
Ian, when I meant fitting it myself I meant getting the builders to do it but he said he doesn't know how to + it's quite difficult to get to the roof of my house especially since I'm afraid of heights.

I think I will see if my builders can do anything about it, he keeps talking about an aerial wire which I have no idea what is- but he did say that he'll could get someone to install but I'd have to buy the aerial. I found on philex brand at Argos for £25 but the reviews say that it's a bit flimsy and most people fitted it inside their loft. Any advice on aerials guys? Somewhere I can go and collect it this week.

If he doesn't fit the aerial I'll just go for the £70 quote and hopefully although not approved they'll fit it properly and it'll work. But does this approved thing actually matter?

Stephen P, I currently have Sky installed in my living and dining rooms. The reason for an aerial was because I wanted to buy a new tv for my bedroom. I will try the hanger trick and see if it works.

I didn't understand that wolfbane website when I entered my postcode. I'm going to buy an indoor aerial and see what happens.

Dave Lindsay, since my room is a loft bedroom I guess it has to pass to less layers of bricks right? I hope it does work though, I used to use a set top aerial a couple of years before the switch over and it was quite good with hardly any noise.

I've tried using the hanger in the coaxial port but nothing happened
