Les: I wouldn't claim to be an expert, but our Freesat box (in England) has BBC Scotland HD on 108, BBC Scotland SD on 174, BBC One Scotland SD on 960 and BBC One Scotland HD on 973.

I receive Meridian news instead of Anglia local news on SKY ITV+1 channel 203?
Is there any way you can you change me back to Anglia news broadcast?

Mr Dilip Jobanputra: ITV closed several of their +1 regions on satellite last year, at the same time as they lauched their remaining HD regions in England. You should still get the correct ITV region on 103.

I don't know how far ITV's "regionalisation" went on Freeview. Eg. the West still gets Central on 103.

Chris.SE: There's been no change to the regionalisation of the PSB3 mux, the additional ITV HD regions are only available on satellite and cable. I doubt anything will change regarding PSB3 until the BBC & ITV reach agreement over how all of the additional encoders and multiplexing equipment required for each region will be paid for.

How can a person who has no technology in home access programmes like 'revelation TV' getv, or even tbn - hope you can help

ELAINE HARRIS: Revelation TV is on Sky and Freesat, TBN is on Freeview (HD receiver required) and Sky. Both are free to air (FTA) channels so you don't need a subscription to view on a Sky box. I'm not sure which channel you mean by 'getv', but there are virtually no UK channels available on Freeview or Freesat which aren't also available on Sky. Assuming that by saying no technology you have a non-smart TV, the easiest way to get these channels is probably to get a Sky box (2nd hand ones are often available for ?20 or less) and get it connected up to a satellite dish.
