Bay TV Liverpool launches at 17:30h UTC today, Thursday December 4th, on Freeview EPG LCN 8, with a 60 minutes opening special, and then the regular evening report of 30 minutes of news, business and sport.

The station is transmitted from Storeton on UHF Channel 30 and from Winter Hill on UHF Channel 56.

The start date of June 30th given above and on the Winter Hill page is incorrect, and repeated comments to get the start date, the transmission mode typographical error, and the frequency corrected have been ignored.

Clearly the provision of accurate information on this site is not a priority.

Rooftop aerial L25 7XE

I have excellent reception on my Panasonic TV from most channels. BBC1, ITV, and the HD versions all show 100% signal strength and 95% to 100% signal quality. However, Drama on channel 20 band 23 shows 100% signal strength but only 30% quality and lots of errors and is often unwatchable. The signal strength meter on my Sagen PVR shows similar results..
Any suggestions?
Thank you.
