Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Tacolneston transmitter area
A. Nimmo: The TV Licence is not a subscription and does not entitle you to reception of any particular channels. The only broadcasters that receive funding from the TV Licence are the BBC and S4C, whose channels are available from every transmitter in the UK (Welsh transmitters only for S4C). Other channels are provided by commercial broadcasters and have no requirement to serve any particular location. Perhaps you could expand on your comment in more suitable language (given that the contributors to this website have no connection with any broadcaster and offer help/advice out of their own good will). A full post code would allow us to see what your predicted coverage is and which transmitters are available at your location.

My freeview has been out for 6 days, no channels whatsoever and nothing picked up on a separate portable aerial. I live in West Lynn, Kings Lynn and have never not been able to get a single channel. Have cancelled TV licence for the time being. I don't think it's an aerial issue as the usually trusty portable also failed to pick up a single channel and it ALWAYS picks up at least a couple of BBC channels. Don't really know who to call aside from TV engineer to come and diagnose the problem. ..

Lucy mendonca: There are no faults showing for the Kings Lynn transmitter but if you provide a full postcode we'll be able to see which transmitters serve your exact location, predicted signal strength and your distance from the transmitter etc. Have you checked whether any of your neighbours are experiencing the same problem? I'm not sure why you think cancelling your TV Licence will achieve anything as it is a licence to receive television broadcasts via any method, not a subscription to receive any particular transmissions.

A. Nimmo: Wow, how lucky you are that out of the majority of East Anglia on the 18th, including the TV transmitter site, you actually had power! There were hundreds of power outages across the region that day, including the vast majority of the Kings Lynn area, including the transmitter. Roads were blocked by fallen trees, children off as schools closed, and the emergency services stretched to the limit, and the electricity company engineers working their rears off to restore power, first to vulnerable people.
But im sure they are most humbly appologetic that you had to suffer a few hours without telly. But at least you could light and heat your home, unlike so many others.
