Hello,
The 'Rishtey Europe' channel on freeview 77 stopped broadcasting on Mon 30th Nov 15 suddenly in the middle of a programme and has not returned since.
I have an ariel sitting on the window sill next to the tv plugged into the back.
I followed the reset channel list instructions by unplugging the ariel and then rescanning the channels with the ariel plugged back in but its still not working.
Is there any other reason this channel has stopped working?
Thanks

Badeeia:

It would appear that transmission of this channel has ceased, at least for the present. It not not recommended that you retune in an attempt to find it.
