BBC iPlayer - iPlayer TV Home to watch on internet

or if your TV does not have digital (only 5 channels) get a set top box
This will do but shop around

Grundig GUD1500 Freeview Set Top Box *Grade A* | Ebuyer.com

Kids TV is on channels 70 to 72

Some kids telly is on BBC1 and BBC2 so keep a look out.

TV Guide UK TV Listings - UK's No 1 TV Listing site for Freeview, Sky, Virgin Media, Freesat & BT Vision is a good internet TV guide, but set the customisation controls in the blue box top left to your area and what service you have.

Hope helps

Oh

You will need a TV Lisence to watch the Live TV, but none is required to watch non-live content from the iPlayer.

I believe you can get i-player in the states by using a proxy server to access the i-player website. But you would be breaking copyright.

I live in Alcester B49.
Before the recent retune Freeview was not good. Yesterday was unwatchable, and motorcycles passing caused all channels to break up and they would take several minutes to recover.

Now it works wonderfully. I suspect the masthead amp is still required.

Only wee problem is sometimes I lose lip sync. quick change of channel and back again resolves that.

So for me its a thumbs up. Except for the loss of dave ja vu :(

Butt here is how its made on Quest to make up for it.

And I have deleted Really from my channel list!

Hmmm

I have had poorer reception from SC during certain westher types (Really wet weather recently). Is this normal and what weather will degrade reception? I am on poor reception area and have a masthead amp and wideband antenna.

My TV in the bedroom has a cheapo argos set top box and an old CRT telly. That works better in wet weather than the dgital lcd telly in the living room. But the lead from the wall to the set top box is 10m long cos I am too mean to buy a shorter one! It has moulded plugs either end. Anyone have any idea how muct attenution is proviced by such a lead? I am thinking of swapping the 10m lead to the downstairs telly to see if it improves things. But I do live in a difficult area (B49)
