Installing Satellite And Cable TV You can install satellite or cable TV to your home provided that you get written permission from the Association for the work to take place. We will only refuse permission if there is a good reason, for example, if the proposed work would affect the safety or value of the building. You may also need planning permission and building regulation approval. You are responsible for checking whether these are needed and getting the necessary approvals before commencing work. We will inspect the work when it is completed. If it is not satisfactory we may ask you to carry out additional work. This will be at your own cost.
Digital TV From March 2010, Cardiff saw the switchover from analogue to digital TV. Almost any TV can be converted with a digital box, even a black and white one, so there is no need to buy a new TV unless you want to. Most digital boxes connect to a TV using a SCART cable. If you do not have a SCART socket on the back of your TV, you will need to ask for a digital box with a built-in RF modulator. If you do decide to get a new TV, make sure it carries the ‘digital tick’. The ‘digital tick’ means that it is designed to continue working after the switchover If you live in a flat, Taff will be responsible for upgrading the TV aerial if required. The cost of this, as well as the maintenance of the aerial, will be included in your weekly service charge.
