3:10 PM Derby
I live in Allestree, Derby (DE22 2RL) and, while I receive most of my freeview from Sutton Coldfield, I get East Midlands channels (BBC1, ITV1) from the Derby transmitter (which is a direct line of sight of my rooftop aerial).
However, every evening (I'd say sometime between 5 and 6pm) my ITV1 and other ITV channels disappear. This has been the case for several years, maybe since the last freeview switching. It's never been a problem, I don't watch that much tv and when I need ITV1 I can get it via HD or by switching to the West Midlands ITV channels, which my tv puts in the 800 freeview range.
However, what has perplexed me this last couple of weeks is that the same fate befalls the extra BBC Red Button Wimbledon channels, 602-606. They are there during daytime, but, like ITV, they disappear after 5-6pm. The standard Red Button 601 channel is still accessible at all times.
I've contacted freeview.co.uk but they can't offer any explanation. I wondered if the experts on here could offer any explanation as to what happens in the early evening to scupper a handful of freeview channels?
