By providing a full postcode (such as W1A 1AA), national grid reference (for example SE123456) or latitude, longitude pair (like 54, -0.5) this page will provide a map, terrain plot and detailed information of the location showing the UK and RoI television transmitters that it is possible you receive Freeview, Freeview HD, Youview, BT TV and Saorview from.
 

(Don't know your postcode? Find it at Post Office Postcode finder).

UK Free TV uniquely shows you transmitter coverage maps, aerial to transmitter terrain plots, the closest 10 mobile phone masts (for possible 4G-at-800 interference) as well as tabulated information (sorted by direction, by received signal strength, by frequency, by service names or by transmitter name).

These predictions are based upon a rooftop aerial and depend on the suitability of the aerial, the distance to the transmitters, the power of their signals, the postcode area, and local terrain.

Hi
We have 2 freeview tvs upstairs that worked ok but now have really poor reception. One is was a brand new tv with a built in freeview receiver, the other an old tv with a freeview box. They now can't get BBC and the other channels are very iffy.

We are 10 miles from the Sandy transmitter, can you suggest what I oould do to resolve?

Hi, again back to 4G. Say BBC transmits on UHF ch 60 with a signal of 58 and the the LTE strength is 71. Obviously this is not enough to interfere with the transmitter signal, BUT, with other interfernce factors combined (ie atmospheric) could this be enough to cause 'an issue'?

ruth connelly: Has the change in reception coincided with work carried out on buildings on the industrial estate?

You may be only 10 miles from the transmitter, but there are certainly things that could be a source of difficulty.

See this terrain plot:


Terrain between ( m a.g.l.) and (antenna m a.g.l.) - Optimising UK DTT Freeview and Radio aerial location


The red on the plot corresponds to Standford Bury where there is a row of trees which are potentially across the signal path. The industrial buildings could be a difficulty with those in bungalows being even lower to the ground and therefore, logic would suggest, potentially more likely to have difficulties.

Mariya : sorry for the delay, but I've only just seen your question.

I'm very very surprised you do not have Cbeebies, since its a PSB station (so you get it even if your signal is from a relay), and if your missing it, your going to be missing BBC3/4 as well. If you type your postcode (IG8?) into the reception predictor, you'll see what you should be getting. BBC signals are particularly strong, so I'd expect you to get something, and putting an IG8 postcode brought up no problems for signals from Crystal Palace.

Do you have a TV and a recorder? Check to see if its on one, and not the other, and perhaps see what transmitter they are both tuned into, and what other channels are missing.

The only other answer I can think of is that TV's and PVR's can be set up to remove certain channels from the EPG (the adult ones, for instance) - it could be that your TV has been set up in this way (probably by accident), and just needs to be reset.

As a stay-at-home dad I know that Cbeebies was a godsend when my kids were younger (CBBC does much the same thing now), so I know how valuable it is.

Clumsy:
It is rare to recover any electronics devices after fluids have been spilt inside them!
Asthere are mains voltage sections, I would strongly advise buying a new box and recycle the old damaged one.

Maybe offer it some garlic bread and a glass of chilled vino.
