We will still need Freeview in 2042
Sunday 19 November 2017 7:53PM

What about the areas that still cant get decent internet? And don't say that by 2045 or whatever it will all be sorted because they have been saying it will all be sorted since the internet was launched. The same goes for 5G, there are plenty of places that don't even get GPRS and haven't ever had it let alone 3G. The thing is an aerial or a dish works in 99.9% of places, why dont the powers that be understand that?

Why am I not surprised that they cut services and not top pay!

It's about time all PSB were forced to transmit the same on all platforms. I also think everything on freeview should be available on freesat.

Waltham (Leicestershire, England) Full Freeview transmitter
Thursday 25 October 2018 8:36PM
Hinckley

After years of normal service from my set up I now have a problem.
My aerial is set to Waltham even though Sutton Coldfield is nearer, because I'm in the East mids and not the West.

All Muxes have been fine, not as strong as from Sutton Coldfield but all over 75% quality. Over the past few months I have noticed that mux 29 has reduced to poor quality but is still stable but mux 56 has completely disappeared, no signal strength or quality, 57 is perfect. Not a real problem as due to the position of the aerial I can get the missing mux from Sutton Coldfield on the side of the aerial. Its the same on all equipment. Just wondering why its only the one mux that has gone??? Cant pinpoint when this actually happened because freeview is only used as a back up and in 2 rooms, normally use satellite.

More equipment ending up in landfill because the goalposts have been moved again.
