Freeview "balloons" advert | Freeview news
Wednesday 11 January 2012 9:12AM

I have to say I find that freeview advert intensely irritating.

My postcode in NP19 7 is in a velley by the river usk. Hills block our line of sight to the mendip and wenvoe transmitters that would need a pole tyhe size of a power pylon to overcome. The BBC told me our "official" transmitter is "Mynydd Machen"

Years ago a local company that I actually used to trust for repairs offered to erect digital aerials and for well over a hundred quid stuck something on my roof that frankly from the size of it ought to receive the cameras on the Apollo LEM at Tranquility Base but what this shyster did NOT tell us at the time was there was no digital signal from that mast, and would not be until the analogue system shut down.

This advert rubs in my face daily the fact that I have been conned by that shyster who I hope dies horribly of some vile disease.

However, from visiting your site this morning I know at last that (and I thank you for being so open with your information) that there is NO WAY I will ever get half the channels that advert promises because the only transmitter I can see does not, will not, and never will, broadcast them.

That does not help the situation of course, but at least I now KNOW I've been lied to for years by almost everyone I've asked about this issue.
