Why was the note about the freeview being off on Thursday 14 June not shown on this site until the next day? When i checked that night I am sure it was not displayed causing me concern as to why I had no picture. An explanation would be appreciated.

Tom Murphy: This is an independent site. Information provided on it comes from official sources. Because the sources don't notify the site when there is a change or update to the engineering work, it is up to the site to "look". I have no idea how often it does this, but it stands to reason that there could be a delay in the information getting onto this site. This is why, at the top of the page where it says that BBC and Digital UK report no faults, that there is a link to recheck. Clicking the link will cause the site to "look" at the source information. The link is not present where there is an engineering works report shown.

You can view the source information yourself by going to:

- Digital UK | www.digitaluk.co.uk/engineeringworks
- BBC | www.bbc.co.uk/reception and entering your postcode and selecting the appropriate options
