We have the Beecroft Hill TV satellite signal which gives us very few decent Freeview channels. Can we readjust our aerial to Emley Moor which is much better and from where we can get Talking Pictures.

Martin Epstein: You do not receive a satellite signal from any ground based transmitter. If you put your full postcode into this website you'll get a coverage prediction which will tell you whether it would be possible to receive Emley Moor at your location.
