Where a channel can be watched for free, the channel number is listed below. In addition, if you can watch (or listen) immediately online, press the button in the "web" column.

mick: They do put new ones on, but no broadcaster on Earth can afford to just show new programming (or at least programmes you'd actually want to watch) - there are more hours in the day than there is original content.

Of course you could subscribe to Gold, and pay to watch repeats....

My chosen transmitter is Sandy Heath but about 100 yards away from me are some tall trees maybe 60 to 100 feet high..
I'm currently experiencing pixulation on several channels, Would it pay me to slightly raise the front -tip of my Roof-mounted aerial, and if so what would be the maximum angle above horizontal to go?

Hi I love to watch Pick TV but find your adverts between very loud and intrusive. So much so that I always mute the sound during them and do not watch at all. I am sure many others do the same and this doesn't do your advertisers any good!
Any chance of reducing the sound of adverts to a normal level?

Tuesday 15 July 2014 8:42AM

Val King: I would suggest there are two reasons for "adverts being louder than the programmes" on Pick TV.

Firstly, the adverts are not actually louder: they are just part of what is called "The Volume Wars". By using special software (called "auto compression"), the sound is made to sound louder, even though when measured, it isn't.

The adverts are delivered to Sky (who run Pick TV) by the advertisers in this form. They are paying for the channel, so they get make this choice.

Secondly, most of the content on Pick TV is of US origin. Most programmes are mixed for "5.1 sound" and then converted to what is called "Dolby Digital": a system that sounds OK on both stereo and 5.1 systems.

The upshot of this is that listening to it with stereo speakers will sound slightly quieter for the programmes than the adverts.

If Sky's clients (the advertisers) thought they would make more money by making the adverts quieter, they would be quieter.

Personally, I'm almost shocked that you don't use Freeview+/YouView to record Pick TV and skip the adverts altogether!

Tuesday 15 July 2014 8:48AM

Arthur: Sorry that your comment here was missed.

If you are going to modify your aerial to deal with trees, the most sensible option is to use a longer pole.

Tuesday 29 July 2014 9:43PM

henry mcallister: No, BT Sport is a subscription channel, so requires a Sky box fitted with a suitable card to decode the signal, once the subscription has been paid. In circumstances when content is free-to-view for promotional purposes it would normally still require a Sky card, as the signal would be soft-encrypted due to rights issues which apply to many sporting events.

There is demand that Freeview allow there to be a Multi Cultural Community Channel and Asian Tv Channels on Freeview BOX Please we all DO NOT Have SKY TV -Virgin-BT or cable.

Friday 1 August 2014 10:59PM

kamran akram: If someone think they can make money from such channels, then why not. I'm sure Freeview would be happy to have as many profitable channels as possible, providing they have the capacity.

Frankly, judging by the audience for the 'local' TV channels, there might be some space soon...
