The Care Home is responsible for the communal aerail on the home. Contact them and ask them to ensure that your mother is getting the TV signals she should. Also, put the post code of the home into the Digital UK coverage checker website at That will tell you which channels are being used so you can check that her TV is correctly tuned (the channels in use are usually shown on the manual tuning page - but do not do a retune unless it is clear it is tuned to the wrong channels.

Unfortunately, at the beginning of the century I suffered from a bad stroke that has left me badly disabled both physically & mentally. After having to endure Virgin Media (& I would like to stress 'endure', as it was costing me to nearly ?100 to be able to receive a half decent programme after having to wade through 'the best of somebody' or 'their greatest hits' - basically nothing that I'd seen before & didn't really fancy viewing them again. I am not in any way attracted to any kind of sport which virtual does nothing to me apart from putting me to sleep! I live on my own in a 2nd floor flat & am trying to see what 'freeserve' has to offer but even that has proved v. difficult to me to set up.
