The bright green areas shown where the signal from this transmitter is strong, dark green areas are poorer signals. Those parts shown in yellow may have interference on the same frequency from other masts.

Tony DENNIS: All the BBC's terrestrial channels are on Freeview, can you be more specific about which ones aren't working and if any other channels are missing? Roku sticks/boxes and similar won't affect Freeview signals themselves but if you have a HDMI cable running close to the aerial lead it can cause interference as many cheap HDMI leads don't have proper screening braid around the inner cables, so it's best to keep HDMI and coax aerial leads as separate as possible.

Carl Draper:

There has been some essential engineering carried out at Belmont and this may have caused a brief interruption to some services and if they are operating at lower power then you may get no signal if you are not in a strong signal area - we'd need a full postcode to check that. Do NOT retune if you have no signal.

Drama is carried on the SDN multiplex UHF C30 at Belmont and both Film4+1 and Sky Arts are carried on the ArqA multiplex on UHF C23.
See Channel listings for Industry Professionals | Freeview for which channels are carried on which multiplex.

If you are not in a strong signal area the current weather conditions may also have caused brief disruption to reception, but that should now have cleared. Again don't retune if you have no signal.
