Damian: The licence fee goes only to the BBC and, as a Public Service Broadcaster, you have access to the BBC from Newry North transmitter.

The networks that don't broadcast from Newry North operate purely for profit and can pick and choose where they transmit from.

I don't agree with anyone who says that the BBC should get less money from those who the Commercial broadcasters decided not to serve.

Hi,
I have three TV's in my house two with indoor antenna and one with outdoor roof antenna. All TV's say weak or no signal with no picture at all. I have discovered that the BBC 1 BBC 2 utv (northern channels) etc aren't working but RTE (southern channels) are working fine. Any ideas please? :/

Kirsty Bradley:

For any of the contributors to this website to have any ideas to assist your problem we really need a post code (or that of a nearby shop/publicbuilding) so that we can determine which of the many transmitters your likely to be using and whether there are any local problems, such as terrain or buildings, that may be affecting your reception.
