The new Freeview prediction system - beta - is here. Finally!

If you visit <img src="data:image/png;base64,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" class="xico" style="vertical-align:text-bottom" alt="www.ukfree.tv link icon"> link iconFreeview reception - UK Free prediction you now get a much more detailed page to help you with any reception issues.

As before you can see this page with a postcode, the system will shortly also allow the input of national grid references, or latitude/longitude references.

Firstly, you can get a prediction for any number of dates by selecting the appropriate tab at the top.

Five different views

There are five different views

  • By direction: this will show the various directions your aerial might point and the services you can receive from the transmitters in that direction.
  • Received signal strength: this shows the information ordered by signal strength, to help you find the strongest signals.
  • By frequency: this lists broadcast frequencies from C21 to C68, showing the services on each. This view can be used to find potential interference or to help with digital region overlap areas.
  • Service names: this lists the services that you can receive, each ordered by the strongest signal.
  • Transmitter names: and finally an alphabetical list of the transmitters with the services listed by broadcast frequency.




Aerial group choice

When you first visit the page you will see the services received by a "wideband" aerial, now you can also select the other aerial groups to see how that will effect reception.

Issues

For the moment it is not possible to resolve postcodes in Northern Ireland (BT) or the Isle of Man. Apologies for that.

david dry: The BBC reception report states that there are no reported problems on Sandy Heath at present. Do you have a build up of snow on your aerial, or on the roof if using a loft aerial? If so, this could be causing your low signal strength.

I (currently) receive a good signal at BS41 9EA from the Mendip transmitter. On the "terrain" page the Mendip tx is shown whereas on all the others it is not shown - only four tx are shown.

Please update your system so that I can find info about the Mendip tx when looking at the received signal strength views etc.
