What can I do if a tree is blocking my TV satellite signal?

If you suspect trees are interfering with signal reception, you may contact an approved installer to check your connections, placement of aerial or dish and other things that may affect the quality of TV reception.

There is no legal requirement to rectify a loss of TV or radio signal/service in respect of trees as an interference, as it is not at present a legal nuisance as defined by UK law. The TV licence is a permit to operate a TV receiver, it does not guarantee any reception and therefore no legal right to reception. There are no court precedents in respect of trees interfering with TV reception.
