Freeview reception at CT18 7LD


For reliable and stable Freeview reception, you need an unobstructed path between the TV aerial on your roof and the digital TV transmitter. The map below shows the transmitters predicted to provide a signal at this location.

You can click on any transmitter symbol to show the coverage area as a green overlay on the map. Double click on a transmitter symbol to go to the transmitter information page.

You can also view the ten closest potential '4G-at-800' mobile phone masts within 1.5km of the selected location - these masts may be used for 4G-at-800 mobile broadband services from 2013-2015.

No you don't. Doesn't work.

Works correctly for me!

We contributors know that the site owner has other commitments and there is a need for further updating of several details. If you require details of transmitters and the channels used, please go to the Digital UK Coverage Checker - that's one of the sources we use.

I am a Stroke Survivor getting totally fed up with my digital service which is costing me nearly ?100 per month for a service which is nothing but a rehash of programmes that has been on television before & virtually do nothing for me but to allow me to view the 5 documentary channels that actually are of interest to me I have to pay through the nose for all of the dross before I can get to the channels that actually interest me. I would dearly love to get on 'Freeview' (which would cost me nothing) but am finding it v. difficult due to the mental disabilities that my Stroke has left me with I would pay if necessary to have 'Freeserve' set up for me if whoever is doing the job could guarantee success but it would appear that nobody is interested in taking on the task.

Richard Thorndycroft: If you're paying ?100 per month then I'm guessing that you've subscribed to either Sky or Virgin cable. If you have Sky, cancelling your subscription will still leave you with all of the free channels available through your Sky box (although you won't be able to record them or play back any previous recordings).

Lesley: The Shatton Edge page has an engineering post showing that work is taking place today. They don't generally provide finish times but the transmitter will most likely be back on by the time it gets dark. Do not attempt to retune.

I live in a flat that has NO roof aerial and not much of a chance of getting one installed (lots of landlords with owners registered abroad). I am floor 2 and 3 of a 5 story building. I received only terrestrial tv channels through a cable box (not virgin, a DVB cable digibox - house previously had virgin) and recently the signals started to die off. I have two TV's in my house with freeview built in and have never been able to pick it up. I am endeavouring to do this now and last week I purchased a "Freeview HDTV Aerial - True 50 Mile Multidirectional antenna with 4G filter for maximum Freeview/UHF/VHF/FM/USB TV Tuner/DVB-T/DVB-T2/DAB radio reception" indoor aerial, which is mounted on the window. Finally I have managed to pick up a signal, but am only receiving PSB1 and COM5 channels?? I have BBC1, 2, 4, CBeebies, Tony Pop, Sony Crime, Sony Crime +1, BBC Alba and Sony Movies +1. Unfortunately I am not picking up any other channels and the BBC ones are rather pixelated. I have just ordered a "Signal Booster, SLx TV Single Output Amplifier 27828HSR With Integrated 4G Filter - Improve Picture Quality And Channel Reception - Boost Your HD TV/FM/DAB Signal. 1 Way - For HD and Freeview".

Is there any chance that I will be able to pick up Freeview TV? Or, using the methods above, if I am not going to pick them up, have you got any suggestions as I do not own all of the block in which I live, have no roof access and will not be able to get a roof aerial installed. Please help, wits end!!!

VMac:

We need you to provide a full post code so we can see what the predicted reception is like at your location. However, from the descrip[tion you give of your accommodation is is jighly unlikely that you will get any reliable reception using the indoor aerial you have - unless you are close to the transmitter and it is visible from you windows (TV signals don't like travelling through walls or metal framed windows).

You only alternative is to use an internet connection to watch streamed services - as long as you have a sufficiently fast broadband service available in the apartment.

As you have no access tot he roof, and no permission to fit anything there, you cannot add either and aerial for Freeview or a dish for Freesat or Sky.

We are been having problems with the TV signal in great Yarmouth area for a number of weeks now , we are not the only one , lots of people social network have stated they have lost there signal again yet your site shows no problems with the transmitter , it goes off at different times of the day , isn't it time someone check the records at the transmitter for faults and fix them , so we in this area can enjoy watching TV instead of a blank screen
