still getting bad disruptions on some channels .Wanted to watch agents of shield on channel 4 , but was completely unwatchable !full screen blocking , sound blips and total signal failure .Forced to watching a repeat of have i got news for you on dave which is problem free.Is any of the freeview channels transmitted through a local transmitter in hull as I guess the bbc has one to transmit their look north news for hull.Just wondering if the problem is from them or ? This problem has been going on for five days now.Was looking forward to watching the last IT crowd episode but guess i`ll have to grab it off a torrent site.
Ps there was a similar disruption a few months ago , where quite a few people from hull was asking whats going on on twitter .I think there is a link to that and the current issues . (53.7457,-0.3367)

Freeview is ok now the problem persisted for about 3-4 hours, I hope We don't end up seeing this regularly. It was either none notified maint or 4g testing?

well i`m still getting blips on alot of channels .On some it`s ok , others it totally unwatchable .Can`t believe there has been no explanation as to what the problem is? I`ve even asked freeview on twitter 4 seperate questions as to what is going on, if theu know anything at all! so far not a single response ..........Remember when they said digital tv is better than analogue? never had anything as annoying as this on analogue telly
I`ve read elsewhere on this site that it`s high pressure causing it .Sorry but I think that is BS tbh because surely if that were true then all the channels would be afftected .The interference or whatever it is is just like it was when 4g was turned on so i`m pointing my finger at 4g .Anybody got a link /address where I can register a complaint as this problem does`nt seem to be getting resolved ?
