Any suggestions for a Freevie aerial?

I live in Kapiti and just recently got a new Samsung B650 TV - it has a built in freeview decoder but i dont have an aerial yet.
ive had a quick look at the warehouse and they were looking $100 for a bog standard one which seems very pricey for what you get.

Anyone got any suggestions where i can find a cheap aerial online? and/or someone to install it on my roof in Raumati :)

Thanks in advance!

Dick Smith does a good pack for $99 with all the bits youll need

If you do install it yourself, bear in mind that it will need to point north to ngarara (waikanae/peka peka area), rather than south as VHF aerials do (ie. the basic aerials that get TV1,2,3)

Cant comment on installers, have always done this sort of thing myself

Im back on the coast in July :P
