Hi all,

All Freeview receivers manually retuned to Brighton Whitehawk channels ONLY. So far so good: normal services and sanity restored.

Thank you to for the invaluable information and the opportunity to share frustrations!

Since when has BBC 4 had food and cooking programming?

I agree entirely that BBC 4 should move to channel 7 and that 105 then goes to BBC 4HD so that those of us who enjoy music and science programmes (and almost everything else on BBC 4) can at last have a decent HD picture. Okay I know iplayer and Youview show BBC 4 in HD on demand but why not let us see it in 1080i or better at the time of delivery? Along with Dave, Quest and one or two others BBC 4 is often the only channel showing anything worth watching for those of us not into yet another drama/soap, game show or sporting event.

Mike B,

Thank you for your kind words........!

I suppose I could receive BBC 4HD with a massive injection of cash to uprate my aerial (I am on high ground above Newhaven: line of sight with Whitehawk transmitter, decent amplified aerial on a mast with 24db of gain and split to front room and rear bedroom), but am I being selfish in wanting BBC 4 in HD from my current set-up? See Briantist's estimated figures for reception in the main article.

I have enjoyed BBC 3's output for some years (Being Human in particular shows what is possible and Glastonbury coverage has been good over the years) but now I grow weary of repeats of Family Guy and Russell Howard which do not really merit HD. I do not read newspapers but your comments ring true....I simply tell it as I see it!

In summary: BBC 4HD on 105, please, and some more good channels elsewhere in HD if possible in the near future.
