I live in Droitwich - no matter what freeview channel I am watching at about 9.15 every evening I get breakup on my Samsung tv. The other tvs carry on fine.
This evening at my in-laws in Redditch at about 9.15 the picture broke up for a short time on their Samsung tv. Mine is set to Bromsgrove and theirs is set to Sutton Coldfield. They say it happens nearly every evening.

Any ideas ?
