Steve: A few local TV channels are on Sky but none so far are available on Freesat. The ones available on Sky are all currently encrypted so although no subscription is required, you still need a Sky box with viewing card to watch the channels and they can't be manually tuned in on a Freesat box either.

Murray: You can get it on Freeview if you get reception from the Kilvey Hill transmitter. You may need to retune your TV or set top box if Bay TV Swansea isn't already showing on channel 8.

Berenice : If you used to have Channel 4 at position 8 in the channel list but this slot is now occupied by a local TV service you will probably discover Channel 4 in the 800s. Carrying out a full retune should now place Channel 4 at position 7 in place of the defunct BBC3, if you receive your TV signals from Kilvey Hill. This is the new arrangement for the channel list in Wales.

robert Romano: Hi, Robert. Bay TV, the local tv channel for Swansea is only available to viewers using the Kilvey Hill transmitter. Have you tried to receive signals from Kilvey Hill at your location? It would help us to help you if you could tell us the postcode of a shop nearby, a local Post Office or local Garage so that we can check the Freeview coverage checker for Kilvey Hill coverage at your location.
