I have lost freeview channel 31, 5USA from the Sutton Coldfielg transmitter.

I've tried everything I can think of to reenable it, but no luck so far

has it been struck off for some reason due to the impending transfers?

Any advice would be appreciated

Last Friday and today you advertised that you would be screening the western film "Monte Walsh" starring Lee Marvin and Jack Palance.On both occasions the actual film shown was one starring Tom Sellick which was made much later than the Lee marvin version. Can you tell me if you are ever going to show the original and why your schedules are wrong
