Freeview reception at RM11 3LS

For reliable and stable Freeview reception, you need an unobstructed path between the TV aerial on your roof and the digital TV transmitter. The map below shows the transmitters predicted to provide a signal at this location.

You can click on any transmitter symbol to show the coverage area as a green overlay on the map. Double click on a transmitter symbol to go to the transmitter information page.

You can also view the ten closest potential '4G-at-800' mobile phone masts within 1.5km of the selected location - these masts may be used for 4G-at-800 mobile broadband services from 2013-2015.

Mike Gordon: Purely in the interest of clarification. When you refer to currently looking at TV on an old box which is working fine, are you meaning that the situation has reverted to normal?

I cannot get an answer to this question: I have posted now 3 times: Can someone explain why ITV Encore on Satellite Channel 123 is being blocked by Sky TV in that you have to subscribe to Sky TV in order to receive it?
This channel should be free as it is an ITV channel

Michael: Because it's a commercial channel, therefore it can decide where it's available and for what charge.

Only the BBC TV and radio services, ITV (the main ITV channel only)/STV (part of Scotland)/UTV (Northern Ireland), Channel 4 and Channel 5 have an obligation to be available for free on all platforms, this being because they are Public Service Broadcasters.

Hi Dave, Thanks for the Answer? Also channels/channel/FIVE">Channel 5 HD has to be subscribed to watch through Sky TV? OFCOM have never addressed why so many Channels are blocked by Sky TV. Even channel Dave and others that are available on Freeview are charged for by Sky TV and I don't understand it?

Michael: Again, it is all down to commercial operators operating where they see fit. Sky doesn't "block" channels -- it's that they're only available on a subscription basis.

Channel 5 was offered the slot on the PSB3 multiplex which is nationwide and carries HD streams of BBC One, BBC Two, ITV/STV/UTV and Channel 4, but it turned it down which is why BBC Three/CBBC is carried there.

With reference to the example of Dave, it is available free-to-air on one of the Commercial Freeview multiplexes, which serve all but about 8% of the population which can receive terrestrial signals. What you must remember and which is logical is that it's objective is to maximise revenues so as to turn as big a profit as it can.

It pays to go on the Commercial Freeview multiplex. We must assume that it's better off to make itself available via satellite on a subscription basis (via Sky) than pay to be free-to-air on satellite (Freesat and Sky).

The point is that the cost of paying to be available to most Freeview viewers is obviously worthwhile when set aside the advertising revenue it generates from those viewers.

And, if it were to make itself available on free-to-air satellite then it would be worse off than it is now because it would have to pay to be on there and wouldn't get any revenue from Sky (if indeed revenue flows to it).

It's all a case of cost-benefit analysis, as it always is in business. We must assume that the status quo is the best for it, and the above explanations would seem to be the reasoning behind what may appear to be a bizarre situation (Freeview users getting it free-to-air but satellite ones having to pay).
