Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Dover transmitter area
Mr Fooley:I have the same problems with quality of the signal of some of my channels while other are fine.
I have carried a freeview reset procedure and it has made no difference at all.
Channels like BBC 1 is fine and has a good quality of the signal, but channels like Yesterday have a very poor quality of the signal and you can't watch them at all. I live in Ashford, Kent.

Paul and Mr Foley:
We need a full post code so we can look up what the transmission and reception conditions are where you live.
The other thing you must do is to check what the signal strengths are for all the available multiplexes and report them here. Then we can see if you have too much or too little signal.
