Extremely annoying. When Winter Hill went digital in 2009, all channels remained at the top end of the band. Since then, at our flats we had to replace two aerials (one corroded, the other blown over), so we purchased band C/D replacements. Now OFCOM is selling off the top end of the band we will have to purchase replacement aerials at considerable cost and inconvenience.

Oh I hear you say, you should have bought a Broadband aerial. Well perhaps we should, perhaps we should have realised that Ofcom would change all the frequency allocations again and again. Perhaps we should go all satellite, where at least Ofcom can't do this as frequency allocations are subject to international agreement through the ITU.

Channel 4 abandons Freesat HD in TWO DAYS

How sad - public service broadcaster, but no public service. Are we to take C4 seriously?

Oddly S4C HD has continued, despite fewer than 50,000 viewers at best (on their own figures).

Obviously as a savvy techie, I can get it on FTA or Freeview, but average joe public viewers will be watching mushy SD or more likely other channels...
