Seeing something different? We are doing A/B testing on a new Material Design
I have created a new "mobile first" design for UK Free TV. To do this I have used the Material Design concepts - outlined here - which anyone who Android "Lollipop" or Google Inbox will recognise.
To allow for the changes to be tested against the existing site, A/B testing is being used. This means that 50% of users will get the new design and 50% the old one.
Where is the menu?
Use the "hamburger" icon at the top-left
right of the page to show the menu. It will "pop out" from the left-hand side of the page.
Where are all the updates?
All the "live updates" that were located in the right hand column of the old design are now a new system that starts as the top "sheet" on each page. You click on the combined bar and it expands to show all the updates. You can click on a coloured section to show all the items for that section.
If you wish to close back to the single line, click in the dark grey "border".
If you spot any problems, please let me know below.
MikeP: I get an overlay if I select a transmitter on a map such as https://ukfree.tv/maps/freeviewhd which shows multiple transmitters, but if I click through to a transmitter page such as https://ukfree.tv/transmitters/tv/Sutton_Coldfield I get the transmitter icon in the centre of the map but with no overlays and the box to select which multiplex to show the overlay for is not shown at the top left of the map. I'm seeing the same results in Firefox 52 on Linux, Firefox 52 on Windows 7 and IE11 on Windows 7.

Found a problem with the prediction page. My brother has just moved to an EX36 3DY - but the prediction suggests he is served by Emley Moor in Yorkshire whereas he is in North Devon!! Please can you correct whatever is causing that major error?
I've also found that some of the coverage mapping does not show the green covergae areas, as others have said above. For me it's a bit irregular and I haven't found and rationale to explain it yet.
