Although I have been re scanning many times, I am not able to receive the true entertainment channel that used to be on 61 or the true movies channel. We enjoyed these channels very much. Postcode nr33 7qh.
Will the service be resuming in my area please?

Janet:

True Entertainment is no longer avaailable from the Tacolnston transmitter. It was moved on behal=f of the owners, Sony, to use the local multiplexes where available. There are no local services on the Tacolnston transmitter.
