Want to better understand the current TV faults? See the all new UK Free TV page

The "All transmitters with faults and engineering" page has been upgraded to make it easier to understand where the current faults are on the Freeview transmitter network.

The  All transmitters with faults and engineering   page has be
published on UK Free TV

See: All transmitters with faults and engineering

Following from your suggestions, I have made changes to the icons used to show which Freeview transmitters have fault or engineering status associated with them.

Previously, you had to look quite hard to see which transmitters had current faults, and which had faults listed for the last few days.

The new format for the page looks like this.

Only the sites with "live" faults are shown with the yellow symbol (those with Digital UK's "this week" status, a pink border).

I hope the above listed changes will help you to understand where the current faults and system outages are.

The new symbols carry though to other pages that shows transmitter symbols.

Emma k: There is engineering work showing for Hemel Hempstead transmitter in the early hours of Friday morning but nothing since. Are you certain that you're using the Hemel Hempstead transmitter? There are other transmitters that you could be using depending on your exact location (please provide a full postcode). Also, have you checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV?

No channels available in Dursley area . Your map says BBC channels only are affected. When do you expect normal service to resume please?

bill: The engineering notice mentions BBC channels because it comes from a feed provided by BBC engineering. Normal service will be resumed when the engineering work is finished, which will usually be by the time it gets dark. Do not attempt to retune.
