New UK Free TV server

Due to the large number of visitors to UK Free TV, the site is moving to a new, dedicated server.

Due to the large number of visitors to UK Free TV, the site is
published on UK Free TV

This will then allow the new site features such as the digital radio section, and improved transmitter coverage maps.

There will be a short period when a number of site features will be disabled. This includes the email system, new comments and some engineering information functions.

When the switch to the new server is done, it can take up to 24 hours for the DNS system to catch-up, so it may be possible that you experience some delays for this period.

Having a dedicated server will improve the site response times.

I have just retuned my digi box because Film4 was breaking up and I have now LOST Film4.

Why is this happening, its rubbish, digital is good when its good but when it is marginal its lousy and subject to interruptions. Think I am using Mendip BTW

Analog fades slowly this needs fixing!

Digital reception gives you all or nothing. Hence the name.

The way "Freeview" mucks about with channel changes saying it's all down to 5G is rubbish, they have moved quest to 19 and Dmax to 37 and Yesterday to 25 why? And now they have just been told the mast that serves Plymouth is losing the Smithsonian Channel channel after only being on for about 6 months

A Lloyd: You seem to be mixing up two completely different types of changes. The frequency changes are to free up the 700MHz band for mobile services. That has no connection with channel number changes, which are decided by the owner of those channels choosing to promote one of their other channels to a lower channel number. It is Smithsonian Channel's decision to broadcast on a cheaper multiplex with a lower level of coverage, not Freeview, who are just an organisation setup to carry out marketing for the UK's Digital Terrestrial TV (DTT) platform and have no control over how it is operated.
