How do terrestrial channels work?

Terrestrial television broadcasting is a way to watch television materials without resorting to satellites . The signals of terrestrial channels can be received through antennas that receive signals from the main transmitting station, as these stations are high towers to cover all parts of cities. The history of the work of terrestrial channels dates back to 1927, when the first broadcast was from the US state of Washington, then in 1923 the British BBC began broadcasting it, while the regular broadcast of television programs began in 1930.

Necessary tools and materials

  • TV set .
  • Shower tray .
  • Shower cable connected to the dish.
  • Converter _ _
  • pliers.
  • Electrical tape.

How to run terrestrial channels without Ariel on the receiver using a dish shower

1- Disconnecting the satellite cable

The first step after disconnecting the power from the receiver is to remove the shower cable coming from the shower tray , where the cable is separated by rotating the metal piece installed on its head, and then removing it quietly. The cable should not be disconnected by hard pulling as this will make the work more difficult and will damage the cable. After that, we separate the anchored metal piece from the shower cable , keeping the copper head of the cable straight, and not cutting the metal mesh surrounding the cable.

2- Installing the converter

This step needs a little attention. After purchasing the converter from a specialized store or through the Internet, we do the following:

  • The copper head of the cable must be inserted into the adapter.
  • Then, fix the cable with the adhesive tape well to prevent the transmission from being interrupted while watching matches, for example.
  • You can use the pliers to press it to fix the cable if it is loose.
  • Be careful not to let the brass rod come into contact with the outer frame (the grating) of the cable. 
  • Also, make sure that the metal grating surrounding the cable is in contact with the outer circular portion of the adapter.

3- Connect the adapter and cable to the TV

Now the receiver can be pushed aside, as the converter piece is simply connected to the TV at the antenna input and the process does not require many complications, but it must be ensured that the converter is completely inserted into the designated slot. You may need to twist the adapter clockwise to secure it.

After making sure that all the connections are perfect, reconnect the electricity to the TV, turn it on using the remote control, and make sure that the input (Input) or the image source (Source) is chosen to be Antenna or UHF or what it means according to the menu on the TV.

4- Searching for terrestrial channels

After selecting the antenna image source, you must search for terrestrial channels using the TV remote control, enter the option to search for UHF frequencies and wait a little while the terrestrial channels will be obtained with excellent accuracy and high quality.

Thus, how to operate terrestrial channels without Ariel is not expensive at all and does not require much time or much equipment.
