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.

Mark Lawrence : If it's been like that for a week then you most likely have a fault with your aerial system. Start by checking for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV.

Ann Hill: If it has only started with bad weather then you may well have rain getting into your aerial/cable. Unplug the incoming aerial cable from the back of your TV or set top box/PVR and check for any signs or water or corrosion, also check any other connections or wall sockets that the cable passes through.
