Alf Randall:

They do not appear to have a web-based service.

You might find a plug-in tuner that would fit a tablet computer but most tuners need a USB socket and most tablets do not have that.

Valerie Wright:

Go to the Digital UK Coverage Checker and put in your post code and house number, then select Detailed View and then press Go. That will then show a listing of the transmitters available at your location. Scroll down to show your prefered transmitter and it will show the channel numbers for the available multiplexes.

Chris.SE and Tracy:

I'm not mixed up at all, just look at the ecpected reception shown on the Digital UK Coverage Checker for Tracy's post code.

When I look at the coverage checker set to Tracy's post code it shows that only Sandy Heath has a good reception at her location, all the others have varying degrees of poor reception or none at all.

So I am correct. The only issue is whether she would gat the regional programmes she prefers.

Sudbury (Suffolk, England) Full Freeview transmitter
Tuesday 25 June 2019 11:20AM
Bury St. Edmunds

Tracy et al:

Having had yet another look at the Digital UK Coverage checker set for the post code given, Sudbury is shiown as variable for SDN reception, Tacolnston is poor for the main 6 multiplexes but may be usable for COM7 and COM8. Sandy heath is good for the sic main multiplexes but not for COM7 or COM8, none of the other transmitters mentioned are of much value.

So is Tracy wants all the six main multiplexes then she should be using Sandy Heath, but if she is willing to have variable reception of SDN then Sudbury is an alternative though less than ideal.

Her location in Thurston End, Hawkedon, Bury St. Edmunds, IP29 4LQ does not appear to be ideal for reception of all channels at present. The alternative is to use Freesat instead.
