Are you currently served by one of the 1074 television transmitters in the UK that do not transmit Freeview (compared to the 80 that do)?

You were, no doubt, expecting to pay around 40 and get lots of new TV and radio channels.

Some people have found that a new aerial, twisted around to point at a distant transmitter gets them a full Freeview service.

Others, when they discover that Freeview starting in many years time, have opted for Skys Freesat service.

If you have decided to hold on for Sky News and UKTV History, hearing that analogue shutdown is looming, you're in for a surprise!

Ofcom only plans to put half of the Freeview service on your transmitter. Almost all transmitters will only get public service BBC, ITV, Channel 4 (plus S4C in Wales) programs*.

So, there will be no Sky News, Sky Sports News, Sky Three, UKTV History, Dave. There won't be the music channels 4Music (was The Hits) or TMF. No Virgin 1, Film4. Fiver, five USA or ITV3, ITV4 or E4+1.

* five and S4C will move to multiplex PSB2. In Wales, this means E4 is not carried on the public service transmitters.

It might be my computer, but clicking on 'map of transmitters that will transmit only three multiplexes...'

gives me an error page.

Pity the regulator is useless and puts up with so many being short changed.
