Hi guys i recently got my freeview HD running with good signal and quality now i am wanting to use a splitter so i can use the one uhf aerial on 3 different tvs is this possible?

With 1 tv plugged in i have 90+% signal strength on UHF channels 32 34 36.
this tv has a direct feed from the uhf aerial. It has about 15 metres of coaxial cable all new.

Freeview is working fine like this.

But now i want to add 2 extra freeview HD capable tvs to it.

what are my options to do this?

Try installing a decent quality splitter, and RG6 cable. Depending on the signal strength from the antenna and sensitivity of the tuners, you may be fine like that.

If that fails, you will need a signal amplifier, or a higher gain antenna.

One of these.

or 2 of the 2 way ones. They don''t seem to do a 3 way.
I think you might find them in Bunnings and Mitre 10 Mega too.
Terminate unused sockets with a 75 ohm terminator.

Although with 90% signal you'll probably be OK.
