Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Sandy Heath transmitter area
Hi I have an old aerial which faces Birmingham, and I get all the Midland tv. programs.
On channel 800/1 I get Anglia and 803 BBC Look east that's if the wind is in the right direction so to speak, I'm guessing it's picking up signals from you, the signal is not always constant.
My next question is, TV freeview play, when I type this in it says you are my nearest transmitter, now am I going to waste my time and money? I live in Kingsley so I am bordering on your transmissions or am I?
And do you know anything about these TV Fox aerials? Amazon sells them.

Firstly, this website does not provide any transmissions as it is an entirely independent service to help resolve recaption problems.
As for you real question, we need a full post code of you location, a partial is not accurate enough.
As for the 'TV Fox Aerial' if it is intended for use indoors, such as shown at https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/?ie=UTF8&keywords=tv+fox&tag=googhydr-21&index=aps&hvadid=164978736162&hvpos=1t2&hvnetw=g&hvrand=12627315338974112299&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=b&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9045610&hvtargid=kwd-18406996&ref=pd_sl_1rqtjv04oe_b, their reception is very unreliable at best and of no use unless you are close to the local transmitter, usually within 5 miles of a main transmitter like Sutton Coldfield - but even then they are highly variable. People in the rooms nearby, even next door, affect their reception. You are far netter having a proper aerial on the outside of your property, mounted properly and clear of any obstructions.

terry mason: OK, you need to unpick those different things.
Your aerial sounds like its doing the job, and your getting (West?) Midlands programmes. Fine. But your tuner is also picking up BBC1 from Sandy Heath, etc. Thats ok, and when the tuner has two channels the same , it puts the weaker or alternative one in the 800's. But since a lot of the time its much weaker, it could be that it doesn't always show up very well. In the case of my PVR, I had to try to had those 800's, because it would confuse the timer.
Freeview Play works in very much the same way as Youview or Freetime (which is used on Humax sat. boxes) - all are accessed from the internet, not your aerial. However, I assume that you do need at least an OK signal, because they work by you using your EPG to find that particular channel/programme, and there might be regional variations, so asking for a particular transmitter makes sense. Having just gone to the website, the reason for asking for a postcode makes perfect sense - its Freeview, so they want to find out what channels you can actually get from your aerial. If your on a light transmitter only, your obviously get far fewer channels. If you put your postcode into this site, it will bring up for us your location, best chance of a full service, etc.
To get Freeview Play (which will probably eventually be the de facto standard, since its run by Freeview itself), you'll need it either in a newish TV (Panasonic and now LG), or in a recorder, such as Humax or panasonic. The recorder is a cost effective route - you'll get 3 HD tuners, wifi built in, Freeview play, and its of course a recorder/hd box. About 179-229 is what you should be paying from those two good brands (I have to replace my PVR, and I'll be getting one of those two).
I have no idea what a 'Fox Tv aerial' is, but if its an indoor aerial, your wasting your time and money - and you have a working outdoor aerial anyway, which is far better. Tell us what channels you get (do you get more than the ones listed for Dallington Park? If so, your on a different transmitter), and then we can advise you better.
