Hi
I live in BH14 8PQ. I have just had my aerial checked for Freeview and been told that I will receive it from Luscomb Valley after sitchover next year. My question relates to HD. The guy who checked my aerial said I wouldn't receive it but looking at this site it seems HD broadcasts will be available from Lusc. Val. on March 21st. What's the truth? Are there any circumstances in which I won't see HD?

Bob: You will be able to get HD from Luscombe Valley. What you won't get are the commercial channels as it is a "Freeview Light" transmitter.

Bob: How is your analogue reception (in particular Channel 4 as it uses the frequency that HD channels will use)?
