how to avoid unsightly mess with your wires for a wall hung TV

Stick it on the wall

As much as it’s a foreboding thought, Christmas is fast approaching and televisions are often a perfect gift particularly for kids or an indulgence for the grownups!! Nowadays it’s not uncommon to see anything from a 49” to 65” behemoth gracing lounges and bedrooms around the country and because of the size of modern TV’s finding a spot to put them in can be a headache. Well, let AB Aerials take that pain away as we offer a fantastic TV wall mounting service. The results can be stunning seeing a telly miraculously floating mid-wall out of the way of tiny and often grubby paws. Also it frees up space that can be utilised for let’s say a wine rack, a beer refrigerator or perhaps even a bookshelf.

What is sometimes overlooked is how is that hovering TV is going to be powered, how will it get its signal and how can I connect my devices to it such as games console or recorder? In other words where will the necessary evil cables go?

What to consider when wall mounting a TV

  1. The proximity of your electrical/aerial/satellite sockets
  2. Do they require moving
  3. Do you want the cables to be buried in the wall (and having to take into account the cost of plastering and redecorating)

TV Wall Mounting

How much does it cost to have your TV Wall mounted?

Prices will be dependent on the size of the TV, the type of mount, how the cables can be hidden, cable extensions etc. We do offer a free survey service as it’s always better to assess your requirements as well as offer advice as to the best way to mount the TV. Needless to say the cost may well be much cheaper than you think and the work can be carried out around a timetable to suit you.

TV Wall Mounting service from local professional installers

As televisions get bigger, more expensive and complicated to set up it’s becoming prudent to get an expert professional tradesman in to wall mount the TV and connect the relevant devices such as a DVD, Digi-box, sound bar and recorder.

At AB Aerials we are proud to offer a professional TV Wall Mounting and Installation service. We will ensure your TV looks great on the wall by cleverly concealing the cables.

Please call us for free advice from our expert installers as well as arrange for a free no obligation call out to discuss your requirements.


What To Consider

Firstly, and most importantly, is where the new TV is to be located. If electric and aerial sockets are not nearby they may need to be extended or moved to close proximity to the TV which would incur an additional cost.

Secondly, have you got the correct cables and appropriate cable lengths to connect to the TV’s new position? You may need longer HDMI or power leads for the ancillary devices to be attached. Additionally, do these new and longer cables require trunking or are to be buried in the wall so that they are hidden?

Thirdly, the choice of bracket may not only affect the cost of installation but where the TV can go. Do you require the TV to be flat on the wall or slightly tilted or on an articulated arm so the TV can be angled to various aspects of the room? In the case of an articulated bracket a suitable solid wall is required as it will be “pushed and pulled” throughout its lifetime and needs to be fixed securely.

  • Steve at AB Aerials is a lovely chap. He turned up when he said he was going to and replaced my aerial and set up my TV so it was working again. He left my garden tidier than prior to arriving. I can thoroughly recommend him.

On Completion

Once positioned and mounted the TV can be set up. This includes tuning in and your devices connecting so that all you have to do is turn it on and off you go. If you have purchased a SMART TV you will need internet/Wi-Fi connectivity so as to make it fully functional i.e. so you’ll have access to “Catch up” TV and various apps on offer such as Netflix and the like. We can help with internet connections and provide dongles or powerline adaptors to link up.



How To Book

To arrange an appointment please call us on 01142341189 to discuss your requiems and we can go through the check list with you.

If we supply the brackets costs start from:

Up to 32” – £80
From 32” to 65”- £95

Prices will vary depending on the type of bracket required and the degree to which cables are hidden.
