4G TV Interference Problems

Digital TV interference problems (often referred to as "TVI"), can be difficult to diagnose. We aim to identify the cause of television interference and advise how to solve TVI problems from various sources (including 4G cellular masts).


4G masts can interfere with analogue and terrestrial digital TV channels, or (in extreme cases) overload a Sky Digital distribution amplifier, Freeview box or VCR.

Television Interference can take many forms but on Freeview reception, TVI problems often result in picture freezing or breaking up giving picture 'blocking'. On analogue TV, interference problems often result in picture patterning.


TVI can often be solved by fitting an appropriate TVI filter, but TVI filters are available in many different types so it is important that the right filter is used to completely cure the digital TV interference problem. We can advise, supply and fit the correct equipment to help eliminate TVI problems.
