Idris new: Hi Idris, I had difficulties receiving 'Pick' towards the end of May too, but I was lucky that it did keep itself in the channel list. Pick is carried on the COM5 multiplex, which, on my transmitter is not transmitted from the full height of the mast. It might have been that, or it could have been high atmospheric pressure conditions. I would suggest you carry out a full re-tune after checking all your aerial leads and connections first. Make sure you do a 'first time installation', rather than the 'add channels' choice. I hope this information is of some help to you, Richard, Norwich, Norfolk. Pick is working well again at the time of writing this, Sunday, 5th. June at 8:00 p.m.

J:

I suggest you ask Pick themselves using the Pick website link above (or Sky TV & Broadband | News, Sports, Movies & Entertainment and navigating to the Pick section). Only they know why things are apparently that way.

This website has no connection with any broadcaster and is intended mainly to assist with reception issues and queries.

Caroline: iPlayer is a BBC service which only carries programs from the BBC and S4C. Pick is owned by Sky who provide their own catchup service through Sky Go (http://go.sky.com) however a subscription is required.
