I have 'lost' some Freeview channels including Pick, seems to be since the thunderstorms last week. Retuned twice but nothing added to the list.

Ian Martin:

You do not indicate where you live, by giving a full post code, so we cannot check whether there is any fault with transmissions or reception in your area.

But that is unlikely else there would be dozens , hundreds or thousands of complaints about it. As there aren't, that suggests you probably have an aerial fault. Have you asked your neighbours if they have the same problem? Check that your aerial is still in the same place as before the storm and still pointing in the same direction and still with the rods at the same position as before. Then check the aerial cables from the back of your equipment all the way up to the aerial. Check all the connections and that there is no damage to the cable and that water is not entering the coaxial cable. If you are unable to make that check then you need the assistance of an aerial contractor.

Daisy : I'd like the answer to this too. I missed the last installment of 'the five' for same reason. I have looked everywhere for a 'catch up', but can't find one.

I'm curious to know why "Suits " which has concluded filming the 2017 series, has not been shown in the UK

T. Levine: In the United Kingdom and Ireland, the first six seasons of Suits were broadcast on Dave, but the channel chose to drop the series before Season 7, causing Netflix to pick up the UK rights, streaming the programme less than 24 hours after its US broadcast.

About two or three years ago I recorded on tape a concert by Arndre Riu from Dresden which was
broadcast on Pick. The concert was excellent but my tape is starting to break up. I have tried to
obtain a replacement DVD from normal retail outlets without success.Is it at all possible that you
may be able to provide a copy ??. I would be most grateful if you could.
My details are as follows,

R F Thompson: This is not Pick's website and I doubt any broadcaster would send you a free DVD of a programme they've shown. From a quick search on Google, I've found a DVD on the web store of Andre Rieu's official website titled "Dancing through the skies" which was filmed at the Semper Opera in Dresden (see link below) priced at 23.50 Euros which may be the concert you're looking for.

We were looking forward to watching 'Zoo'.
The amount of adverts that you put on, during the programme, are absolutely ridiculous!!!
We will not bother following Zoo, if we are going to be subjected to such LONG, BORING, ad' breaks!
It really is the worst bombardment of adverts we have ever experienced!!

Phil Hewett: This is not Pick's website and no one here has anything to do with the channel or advertising shown on it. Suggest you contact the broadcaster directly with your complaint as they are unlikely to see it here.
