Ian: This question appears to be somewhat academic at this time when your reception possibilities are checked using the post code provided, as its presently not being transmitted by either of the two main stations that are indicated as covering your area, namely Rowridge and Mendip.

Jade: Via satellite (Freesat or Sky), yes.

Via Freeview, no, because it's carried along with "local" TV services in areas where they exist, Coventry not being one of them.

robert gilmore:

Firstly, you should be able to receive it in Worlingworth, secondly AFAIK there's no way to watch on-line although previews and similar are available via their website.

Pop is currently carried on the COM6 multiplex, and two of the three transmitters it should be possible to receive in your locale transmit COM6. The Aldeburgh relay transmitter is the one that doesn't, being a "Light" transmitter carrying only the 3 PSB multiplexes and it is to the ESE (bearing 112 degrees) of you.

Which way is your aerial pointing?

To get COM6, the best signals should come from Tacolneston to the NNW (bearing 341 degrees) of you.
Make sure you are tuned to the correct UHF channels for Tacolneston -
C40, C43, C46, C42, C45, C39, C55, C32 in the order PSBs1-3, COMs4-7, Local.
Which means COM6/ArqB is on C39.

An alternative transmitter would be Sudbury to the SW (bearing 225 degrees) of you.
UHF channels are C44, C41, C47, C29, C31, C37 in the order PSBs1-3, COMs4-6

Note, satisfactory reception of all multiplexes will depend upon your aerial installation.
To complicate matters, at present both those transmitters could be affected by Planned Engineering which may give reception problems. If you are correctly tuned and have pixellated pictures, that could be the reason. Do not retune if you have pixellated pictures as it may just clear the correct tuning.
