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!

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.
