Digital television for all, for free!

Welcome! has been providing independent information and impartial advice about digital television and switchover for over six years.

There are over thousands of personalised pages here to answer your questions, provide reception advice, solve your interference problems, show you engineering work, tell you about the Digital Dividend Review frequencies sale, about every TV transmitter in the UK and provide maps of TV regions and UK TV frequency maps.

You can find out all about the many channels you can watch for free on Freeview, Freesat, fSfS (Freesat from Sky) and online, plus about the upcoming analogue switch off which will bring some Freeview to everyone.

If this is your first visit, please start by entering your postcode into the box to the right to find out your reception options. If you want updates, pop your email into the box below that, or use the three RSS feeds: UK free TV stories, your comments and daily recommended stories, or use the Twitter feed.

Every page here has a search box to help you find what or where you are looking for quickly, and have a place for your comments and questions which are most welcome. If you prefer a private reply, please use the feedback form.

You can, it should be on logical programme number 102 if you have a Freesat receiver. If your not getting that then either your equipment has 'forgotten' that service or else has a problem. Start by trying a retune - but you may lose some recording settings.
