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

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.

We are in Kings Lynne and since the switchover we've lost channels 12 (Yesterday) and 15 (Film 4).

Anything that would help us get these back would be great.

Kind regards,

Andrew M: Full-power HD transmissions do not start until the second stage of switchover, on the 21st. The low-power temporary HD service is aimed into Birmingham, coverage outside is not as good.

Is the new signal strength weaker than before. I am having trouble since re-tuning my HUMAX which was NEVER the case before.
