Updates for 700MHz Freeview retunes, fixed all channels, new icons, radio fixes
700MHz clearance is the project of rolling retunes to better arrange the Freeview transmission frequencies, so they can be used in 2020 for 5G mobile data. It was blogged about here, but not integrated into the site’s many features.
Having spent a whole day gathering the change information for 300 transmitters and placing them in a database table, I was able to re-code four of the UK free TV features to use them. These are the technical prediction system https://ukfree.tv/prediction where all change dates are showing…
The transmitter multiplex (current state) sections
The all-changes page at https://ukfree.tv/at700
Fixed all channels
The popular “All channels” page https://ukfree.tv/channels/all – the one that shows all the channels you can watch free-to-air – was a little out of date. I am once checking automatically against the other sources such as DMOL and Freesat.
I have selected icons for each section, which makes everything a little friendlier.
Radio sections - general fixes
There are many and various fixes in the radio section. All of the links now link to pages of information, and all of those now have one of the static maps on them, showing the overage area. Such as this example https://ukfree.tv/transmitters/analogueradio/Ardgour
So, everything should work now!
Let me know if there is anything else to improve!
hammer1800: I feel completely left out as I only received about 8 or 10 e-mails for the same issue.........BUT I don't mind 'cos I got worn out reading the same e-mail after about three times.........ONLY JOKING!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for any improvement and the explanation.
