Up here in the Calder Valley, TV reception is challenging with three UHF TV relays around Todmorden alone, two of them in Walsden where I reside. Our transmitter keeps on breaking down and, 48 hours ago, we lost most of our channels leaving only a few HD channels. I can’t even see ITV Calendar any more.
A multitude of phone calls to Freeview, accompanied by terse Twitter messages has failed to resolve the problem, despite several retunes. Denials of there being a fault was contradicted by the BBC who, when I contacted them, said there was a fault which has now been fixed. I still can’t get back the channels I lost though! My neighbours are experiencing the same problems.
Finally, I have lost my patience and we are having Freesat installed, with the new PVR including Netflix and Britbox which we can’t get on our old Humax. Has anyone else made this transition and how did it go? What is the audio quality like on Freesat?
