Dear Mike and Brian,
Thank you again. It seems complicated. All I have in mind here is that some time ago Brian said freesat was designed for areas such as mine, so was not best pleased having bought it, to find we were short changed on channels.
Can you explain to me how freesat works? If , for example, I am watching BBC 1, is that the same signal which is going out on Sky? Or are there two BBC 1s up in the sky? If two, it seems a waste of what is available for other channels, and if one, what was the point of starting freesat?
Many thanks,
Regards,
Nick.

Nick: The BBC rents space on the Astra 2D satellite, and uplinks 15 versions of BBC One - Which BBC regions are on satellite? | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice .

These 15 streams are used by all satellite systems, be they "provided" by Sky or Freesat.

Why is it, the closer you live to the docks, the worse the T.V signal gets??

Edward: The docks are close to sea level so shadowing will affect the signal strength from both Sudbury and the low power Felixstowe transmitter in the Ranelagh Road car park. Use the "terrain" feature on this site to see what's going on in your postcode area.
