From Wikipedia: The channel had been available from launch on UPC Ireland, but was pulled on 22 March 2006. The channel had already been and remains available to Irish viewers on free-to-air satellite for some time, however it has not been listed in the Sky electronic programme guide since its removal on 25 January 2006. ITV3 took its channel number and bandwidth meaning all platforms could be launched simultaneously. - link icon read more about ITV3 on wikipedia (summary by Clipped).

I have just received my DVD player/recorder back after a mionor repair. I have re-tuned the programmes - but, no ITV3. Everything else appears to be OK. Is there anything than can be done to find Channel 10??

Further to my earlier posting, I have now discovered that there is nothing between Channel 5 and Channel 9 (BBC4). I had access to all channels prior to re-tuning. I live in south London.

Regarding my earlier postings - I disconnected the aerial from my DVD player/recorder, and again re-tuned the programmes (this in fact removed everything). I then re-connected the aerial and once more re-tuned. Lo! Everything is back! Even Channel 10 (ITV3).

My ITV3 picture kept freesing & breaking
Siganl strength good according to my wharfdale digibox.

The cure to the above conditions was to disconnect the old equpment equipmet (VCR/anolog DVD recorder) from the uhf ariel output from the digibox!
I sudjest the ch25 as used by new freeview setup for ITV3 & uhf outputs from many old equipment must be very closely tuned!
Even if you have lost ITV3 completely, it may be due to some other bit of equipment connectted to the ariel.
Possible idear is to make sure your digibox is the only thing connected to your ariel & then check the quality of ITV3!

Esme Read,DT3 5AT.Definitely not from the three nearby vertically polarised relays of Weymouth,Preston and Bincombe Hill within your location as they're all freeview lite transmitters only broadcasting public service multiplexes BBCA,D3+4 and BBCB (HD),not the commercial multiplexes ArqA,ArqB and the SDN multiplex which carries the ITV3 channel.
To receive the full package you may have to either direct your aerial polarised horizontally to the main Stockland Hill transmitter or if possible at Rowridge,here preferably polarised vertically as the commercial multiplexes on that mast broadcasts at 200kw on vertical polarity,but only on 50kw (commercial multiplexes only) on horizontal polarisation.
Either Stockland Hill or Rowridge masts are both all group A transmitters and if you did decide to opt for the full package from one of the above,you will need a group A aerial,either a Yagi 18A or for slightly more gain a X-Beam 16A antenna.

Esme Read: Freesat may be your only way.

The terrestrial transmitters that cover your area best don't carry the Commercial channels, which include ITV3.

It is very doubtful as to whether you will be able to receive the Commercial channels from Rowridge. Only an installer who is on site can tell you with certainty.
