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!

Kate: Not freeVIEW, no. But you can use a FreeSAT box and a dish pointing at the 28.2°E satellite cluster.

I have cancelled my Sky subscription. I think that I will still be able to watch the free channels but will I still be able to use the reciever to record programmes.

Karen Denton: No, I'm afraid that if you stop subscribing, the Sky+ box disables the recording and time-shift features. It also won't let you watch anything you have previously recorded.

You have to keep subscribing to at least the minimum entertainment package to keep these features.

You can replace your Sky+ box with a Freesat+ recorder, but the range of channels is slightly smaller - some channels are 'soft-encrypted' (known as free-to-view) which don't require an active Sky subscription, but do require a Sky box and viewing card. See the 'All Free Channels' page for a comparison.

Since yesterday I have had poor picture quality (but perfect sound) on all terrestrial channels via aerial Everything is normal on the Freesat channels. Auto tuning doesn't find any channels, manual finds BBC1, BBC2 and Channel 4, but with the same aforementioned poor picture quality. We are not due for switchover till September.
Do you know of any issues with terrestrial transmission on the LS29 area?

I have had the digital channels from the beginning and now have Panny XW380 so I can receive HD as well.(From Mendip) I have the Radio Times every week and read in next weeks "Doctor digital" column that pay-per-view movies have come to Freeview channel 32 from 6pm daily.I can't get this on my TV.Do they mean Freesat or what?
