Sir
Could you pleas tell me if there is a problem with Sky News on channel132 via the Stockland Hill transmitter??. I have returned my TV, but Sky News seems to be very intermittent. It was off totally last night, then came back, was ok this am, but then got a message to say service no longer available!!!!
All other channels are fine, just wonder if there is a small problem with Sky.

Kind Regards
Brian Bannister

I have been trying to tune to channel 74 (true Christmas) and Talking pictures but have been informed by Freeview helpline that Stockland doe not cover these channels. Is there any liklihood that these will be covered in future?
I have a loft aerial and have no problems with reception.
My postcode is EX15 1XN,

Mrs Evelyn Thomas: True Christmas is broadcast alongside local TV channels, of which there are none planned to broadcast from Stockland Hill. Talking Pictures is broadcast on COM7 which is a temporary service available from 30 main transmitter sites covering around 70% of households, it is expected to close in 2020 and won't be added to any further transmitters.

Graham Theobald: It won't ever receive COM7 or COM8. Both are temporary services which are broadcast from 30 transmitters covering around 70-75% of UK households and are due to close in 2020 following the clearence of the 700MHz frequency band.
