A TV station once on the Sky EPG lineup once took sky to court over the immense costs just for an EPG number.
Rapturetv was their name, Rapture Radio - The Dance Music Station

They tried what the BBC are about to start, kicking up against sky's ripping off.
Nothing became of it however.

Vertical or horizontal?
Back in 2012, I put a new aerial on our property and positioned it in the V polarity.
I did this as I see more strength with it like that.
But I am now seeing more services in the Horizontal position.

I presume these new H services will not move over to V?
I live about 12-15 miles away from Rowridge with it within sight, so does anyone else think a polarity change is probably suggested here?

Hi all,
Question regarding recent Rowridge changes.
I had a Band A aerial, upgraded to a T band aerial Medium gain aerial in April to bring back the moved channels.
I bought this aerial.
20 Element Yagi Medium Gain UHF TV Aerial Group T 8944467390996 | eBay

However, the signal is now blocky/sometimes not even there.
Will upgrading my aerial (rooftop) again to a high gain make a difference?
PO36 0NX is my address and from the roof, i can see the rowridge antenna so its lined up perfectly.

I've just installed a group t 20 element antenna to replace my group a antenna.
It has now allowed me to now see channels 55 and 56, however the signal is blocky.
Will upgrading to a high gain "typhoon" bring the channels back?
The antenna is perfectly aligned, i can visually see rowridge from my roof, it has LOS.
PO36 0NX.
