The Great New Zealand Digital Switchover
New Zealand’s analogue television signal was finally switched off on 1 December 2013. Since then we've been busy `cleaning up' and `recycling' all the old analogue aerials left from over 54 years of installations...thats a lot of aerials.

At TV Aerial Removals & Recyclers we dispose of your old TV aerials through a network of Scrap Metal Recycling plants. We do not encourage disposing of TV aerials as land-fill via inorganic collections or refuse depots.

About NZ Aerials

What are these aerials on my roof?

Many people have a variety of aerials on their roofs but have no idea what they are there for or how long they’ve been there. Here is a quick guide to the most common aerials used in New Zealand today:
Analogue TV Aerial (VHF)

Television in New Zealand started on 1 June 1960, at 7:30pm to be exact. These are some of the first aerials ever installed in New Zealand. Designed for analogue television it is not technically compatible with digital reception and are now obsolete. If you still have one on your roof it really needs to come down, before its blown down!
Digital TV Aerial (UHF Terrestrial)

Most commonly installed aerials of today that support Digital Terrestrial Television; broadcast nation-wide by Freeview since 2008 and in the main centres by TiVO since 2009 and Igloo since 2012. They come in various shapes, colours and sizes. If you have a Digital Satellite Dish you maybe watching Freeview via satellite. If your an avid Sky Subscriber then this aerial and related cabling maybe surplus to your requirements.
Digital Satellite Dish

In 1998 SKY Network TV launched a multichannel digital satellite TV service and uses the standard 60 cm satellite dish that is fitted to many houses. Eleven of its 110 channels can currently be viewed by Igloo subscribers.
