Weak Signal effecting Freeview this summer


Weak Signal effecting Freeview this summer

A lot of engineering work is being carried out this summer on the UK Terrestrial TV network and it may cause disruption to Freeview users.

Your reception may be effected due to transmitters running at reduced power on many of the UK transmitter sites. Engineers are working on the masts and towers that broadcast to Freeview whilst the weather is good.

Digital UK confirms that Freeview across many parts of the UK may experience weak signal, which may result in picture break-ups or interruptions over the next week.
In the Yorkshire region, a weak signal maybe possible from the transmitter at Belmont. This transmitter covers some Sheffield households.

If you are unsure if you use the Belmont Transmitter, the good way to check is if you receive Lincolnshire news instead of our Yorkshire Calendar News.
This transmitter also provides TV signal across the East Riding of Yorkshire, most of Lincolnshire and North Norfolk.

What you can do
On-screen messages will let you know when changes to Freeview signals are taking place in your area.

After changes are made in your area, if you experience missing channels then you may need to retune your TV equipment to continue watching programmes.

The work being carried out is essential across regions as part of technical work is carried out as part of a UK wide programme.
