G Bryant: Not using Freeview , the broadcast is specifically a local one.

The channel is on satellite, but only to Sky subscribers with cards registered in London.

And you can watch online, follow this link: <img src="data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAABAAAAAQCAIAAACQkWg2AAAAZ0lEQVQoz2P8H8nIQApgYiARkKyBBUov+8fAwMCwthFd/uFFhjMbSLFBXp/BJACbDRCAaQOZfsiYT6IGu3i4HpiGQwsJ60Hxw4xE0uOBOD2ooWQSwCCvT0oondnA8PAifg2Mgy/xAQBW0RV2BLc83QAAAABJRU5ErkJggg==" class="xico" style="vertical-align:text-bottom" alt="www.londonlive.co.uk link icon" link iconWatch Live | London Live

dani242: Since the Midhurst transmitter seems to be fine, it sounds like the problem is at your end. Check that your system actually is working properly (a broken cable might be the problem), and also check (using your postcode in this website) that your best transmitter is Midhurst. You might be better for Hannington.

The way Digital television was sold to the public of the UK was on the basis that it provided a better signal strength and enabled more channels to be accessed.

Whilst the number of channels is true I question whether everybody in the UK can honestly say the overall reception is better across the television spectrum.

Why is it that the transmission from Midhurst on Com5 suddenly stops operating at 8.15 pm on Wednesday 8/7/14. A similar situation has occurred several times previously over the last couple of weeks. Is this due to equipment failure, weaker than normal signal strength or something else. Analogue was good !
