50th birthday: guest RDI blog On the occasion of 12 years of UK Free TV: I realised the other day that I am getting old!

“Brian, welcome as a yet-junior-but-highly-meritous member of the exalted club. I shall raise a flute in your honour. We look forward to many years ye” --- michael

Your suggestions (and my corrections) for 2014 please

Your suggestions (and my corrections) for 2014 please I am very interested to know what changes, additions or corrections you think UK Free TV needs to serve as a useful website for the UK in the coming year.

“Briantist: The site is incrediably useful, and Ive learnt a great deal from it in a relatively short time. There was some discussion a little while ag” --- MikeB is managed by Brian Butterworth is managed by Brian Butterworth

We are independent and do not wish to be confused with Freesat from Sky or Freeview

Four ways that UK Free TV maps are better than they were last week

Four ways that UK Free TV maps are better than they were last week The maps on UK Free TV are provided by the Google Maps API, which is enhanced by a dedicated server that generates the TV transmissions overlays. Over the last week I have also totally rewritten the code that generates all these maps. This was done to have them all generated by the same code, which means I could then improve all the maps at one.

“Briantist;The maps are very helpful to me in a practical way.But when are you going to change the Com7/Com8 Kw powers to the correct levels?” --- Aerialman
Upgrade to transmitter coverage maps - now showing potential interference areas

Many of the pages on UK Free TV show coverage maps for the UK's network of Freeview transmitters - these are now showing additional information.

“With transmitters changing channels all the time (due to the 800MHz clearance), would it be possible to show those that will use a particular channel ” --- Dave Lindsay

405-line VHF bands I and III historic interactive map

To ensure that there is a full history of analogue television here on UK Free TV, a new interactive map showing the transmitters used for 405-line TV has been added.

“On your mapsofvhf.php page you could also add a list of the VHF transmitters so visitors can click on the transmitter name as well as the map to visit” --- Mark Agius
How many Freeview, Freesat, Sky and cable homes are there in the UK?

Ever wondered how many homes in the UK use the various different free-to-air and pay-TV platforms? Are there really four times as many Freeview-only homes as Sky-only ones?

“I have freeview and sky free programmes. Which group am I on.” --- Pete Green
ITV and BBC regional TV maps - now with colour (again)

I have reintroduced the colourful "all regions" overview maps for the BBC and ITV television services, and also split the transmitter, BBC and ITV regions into separate pages.

“Dont know if its deliberate or not, but the STV Dundee micro region is shown as coming from the Perth transmitter rather than Angus.” --- Michael
ITV network - regional clean up

As ITV1 becomes ITV, I have taken the opportunity to bring the ITV network up to date on UK Free TV.

“I wonder how long it will be before ITV HD is fully regionalized? Id love for there to be a Yorkshire variant of ITV HD, then my grandparents would pr” --- Josh
