For the last six years, I have answered many thousands of personal emails that you have sent to UK Free TV.

Sadly, I am unable to offer this personal service at the moment.

Until I can restore this service, please can you leave any questions you have on an appropriate page, where they will be answered as soon as possible, or below, if you can't figure out where to ask.

I look forward to your questions!

None of the transmitters based in the UK transmit any of the French TV services.
If you are asking about reception from the French transmitters, please see other replies already giving to this question elsewhere on this site where you have posted it.

mf - fascinating question.

I would think yes, unless sky somehow stop you.


Ask the Virgins if they can save your collection?

peter: That is correct. No, an "upgrade" isn't likely and at your location it doesn't appear that you may be able to receive them from another transmitter.

See here for an explanation as to the two-tier system:

peter: If you have a BT YouView box you may be able to get the BT Sport channels using the IPTV services, which don't rely on the broadcasted channels.

However ... you need the BT Infinity the "fibre to the street" service.

Looking at
Superfast Broadband – Get Fibre Optic Broadband with BT Infinity

You get

"BT Infinity isn't currently available to you.

Can I get fibre optic BT Infinity in the future?

Getting BT Infinity at your property depends on a number of factors including whether or not your telephone exchange currently supports BT Infinity and whether your street cabinet and line have been enabled.To find out more you can look up your telephone exchange on the Openreach website.

Your property is connected to WEMYSS BAY telephone exchange.

Take me to the Openreach postcode checker

More on the fibre optic rollout

You can also register your interest and we'll be in touch if you're able to receive BT Infinity."
