Bobby: London Live transmits lower power than the other channels, and with a restricted radiation pattern (not the same in all directions). Without knowledge of your location it isn't possible to gauge whether this could be the cause.

Rescanning is a waste of time under such circumstances and can only ever result in a negative or neutral outcome, never a positive. This is because the TV will give you the best picture for the signal you are providing it with.

I get London live perfectly on my sky box but tried to get it on demand today for a film that was on last night but can't find it anywhere on demand or catch up?

I live in Bedfordshire and my 'local news', BBC and elsewhere, is London news - but I cannot get London Live. Annoying.

Murray Bro: London Live is a local TV service covering the London area from Crystal Palace and Croydon transmitters at a much lower power level than the main PSB and COM services. It was never intended to cover Bedfordshire (or any of the other counties surrounding London).

Annabelle tame: Signal is predicted to be weak for the London local mux at your location. I doubt there is much you can do about it as the local mux is broadcast at a much lower power level than the main services and you appear to be outside of the main coverage area.

I'm trying to watch Making it big in London but may have to give up as the grating background noise is dominating the programme. I'm finding this a huge problem with most TV stations but some, at least, have a couple of minutes of respite. Unfortunately I'm haven't managed to find how to use the the subtitles on my new TV. If you find that it's necessary to have constant noise, them why not choose something less stressful and gentle.? It's such a shame as since discovering your channel and becoming more interested in what's on in London and visiting more, I regularly watch to check what's going on. Now in need of some yoga and deep breathing!
Thank you,

Delia Folkard

Delia Folkard: This is not London Live's website and they are unlikely to read your comments here. Most TVs have a button on the remote to activate subtitles. Check the manual or post the make and model and someone on here may know.
