Read this: Help at hand for TV viewers over signal (From Swindon Advertiser)

Summary: The 4G roll-out in May included an upgrade of the mast on Tewkesbury Way, and residents were left at a loss when terrestrial aerials were badly affected by the network surge in the area. Engineers have now visited some properties, including in Park Springs, to install new aerials and filters to solve the problems, and anyone else experiencing disruption is asked to contact At800, a company set up to solve the issues. Bart Hathaway, 90, of Park Springs, lost reception for at least two weeks. - swindonadvertiser.co.uk

Really at a loss now, our TV signal has been bad for a couple of weeks, most channels are black with no signal or no service across screen.
After trying to record programmes or missing them all together after weeks of it flickering I tried to retune.
About 8-10 times of retuning still no channels they have disappeared and bad signal.
Rather frustrated as to why this is?? Can you help me regain my TV signal and channels back.
Otherwise I will be a very very unhappy freeview TV user customer. I pay TV licence and yet no TV

jo: You havn't given a postcode, so we cant check what transmitter your using, and if there is a fault with it. However, I think you stated the problem very plainly - your TV is telling you you have 'No Signal'. That means you have a problem with your aerial.

It could be something as simple as the aerial lead being very loose or falling out, or just being duff. If changing it, or making sure it s plugged in properly cures the problem, great. If not, then you'll probably have to get someone out to look it it. It could be corrosion, an almost broken connection, or water in the system via a break.

The best advice is not to ring someone with just an 0800 or a mobile number, bear in mind that to have an aerial and cable replaced is around £150 as an average, so there a really cheap quote for everything, it probably a cowboy, and that there is no such thing as a 'Digital Aerial'.

jo: Mike P has already commented about Swindon here Did this solve the problem? | ukfree.tv - 12 years of independent, free digital TV advice - in reply to kev - your either Mendip or Oxford (which is one reason why a full postcode entered when you ask a question is so useful). If you check both those transmitters, they have no problems. Logically, if its not the transmitter, it has to be you. Could be something as small as an aerial lead loose, duff, or simply fallen out (it happens). But your TV is telling you that its not getting a signal, so either its getting nothing, or so low its not registering. Start from the TV and work backwards.
