Hi

My postcode is BN14FE, a block of flats in Brighton with a communal aerial.

Does anyone know if BBC Four HD is coming to freeview soon?

Many thanks

Meirion Hughes: BBC Four HD has been on Freeview (on the COM7 multiplex) since the HD version was launched a few years ago, however it is not broadcast from any transmitter which covers Brighton.
