I'm in Braintree.
Back in July I was very happy with lovely signal strength and picture quality on all my Freeview Channels following the Digital Switchover - so I know there's nothing wrong with my kit - since November this year Film 4 and ITV 4 to name a couple are now mostly unwatchable (they went briefly altogether fo a few days. Something clearly happened but what - could someone please explain it to me and explain who I talk to or what I have to do to get my July quality of service back?

I don't recall anyone warning of any changes to the service beyond those of the July switchover so, in reading these pasts, if they have changed something surely reducing the quality of service is something that OFCOM would never allow?

Thnak you for a very succinct explanation of what has happened and the reasons behind it.

However I'm sure we're all equally shocked and distgusted that the transmitter engineers are able to do this, let alone without any prior warning or explanation, having already gone though a campaign to 'switchover' in the July - there was never anything said then that what need in July must be suitable for 'lower strength' signal coming in November.

How do I raise a complaint to these people - just directly with OFCOM?
