Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Mendip transmitter area
Before the shut down on 19 January - we were able to get subtitles on our Recorder box - since then only get subtitles on direct TV. What has happened to them - as we want to record programmes but need to record them with subtitles. Also we use A fire stick but it does not have subtitles on ITV. Can you help?

Peter Watson: Subtitles are part of the broadcast and are always recorded as part of the programmes, they would not be affected by any maintenance work at the transmitter. Which make and model recorder do you have? Have you checked the settings in case you managed to inadvertently turn the subtitles off?
According to ITV's website, an S icon should appear at the start of the programme when watching on ITV Hub, which you can select to turn subtitles on or off.
