Firstly let me say my television very rarely changes channels away from CBS Reality, has from tonight i am not very happy because i have missed medical detective's murder in paradise 24 hours to kill, and all the other programs after cops until 02.00 hours, Please, please send me some help information.
I am not on free view i am on satellite i changed to channel 135 which is a dead channel, when you have advertised set your free view box to 135 for the change over i have nothing on the satellite box to change or re set.
I would appreciate very much if you can help me seeing this programs again very soon before i miss many more episodes.
Thank you very much.

I watch this channel nearly all the time. tonight i tried but could not follow medical detectives because of all the music playing over it. friends of mine have also commented on this. it spoils the viewing. please lower the music so as to enable many people like myself watch without too much trouble.
