  • LeonBarrington Leon (@LeonBarrington) reported

    @putasinghonit Just pay £28 for WiFi. I got rid of my sky tv package (was £98) and just opted for £13 NOWTV (entertainment and movies), Netflix, D+, Prime etc as well as usual freeview channels. Never looked back

  • EmilyKitv Emily Knight (@EmilyKitv) reported

    @YarnallKate Ok, You are watching us on Sky SD, we are still on channel 103 but only in HD, to receive us on Sky channel 103 you’ll need to upgrade to an HD service by contacting Sky. If you don’t want to upgrade we are on Freeview HD and Freesat HD - free no subscription service.

  • lukehar04175810 luke harding (@lukehar04175810) reported

    @ryleydavison I had a sky box but no subscription, was just fancy freeview. Used to go down and still the card when my parents fell asleep

  • EmilyKitv Emily Knight (@EmilyKitv) reported

    @YarnallKate @itvanglia @GMB Hello, I’ve looked into this. If you are watching on the ‘ plus one’ service you’ll get Meridian, of if you are watching on HD Freeview, also defaults to Meridian. Hope this helps 🤞

  • amandaglass_ Amanda (@amandaglass_) reported

    @SkyHelpTeam I also don't have freeview, but I think the tv has freeview in it. Is it just as simple as taking the HDMI cable out the back of my current tv and into the back of my new one? Coz I can do that no problem. With tv off obviously

  • Nixed81 Nicholas O (@Nixed81) reported

    TV reception seems to of fixed itself. Had a couple of weeks of poor freeview reception recently.

  • sminkypinky76 SminkyPinky 🇪🇺 (@sminkypinky76) reported

    I’ve sent a third email to the building management about our lack of freeview signal. I have left out the part about where I am unable to watch Talking Pictures and CBS Drama and it’s pissing me off now.

  • margatesunsets Fiona K. (@margatesunsets) reported from Margate, England

    @dancludlow Never thought of it even. Not that worried, there'll be a solution. It supposedly has Freesat & Freeview on it. Will have to try to get D's son out here, if he ever stays still, he'll know! TV is 2020 model, hardly top of the range but good enough for me.

  • horror_channel @horror_channel (@horror_channel) reported

    @DorsetGirl1 Horror Bites, our on demand catch-up service available on Freesat, YouView and Freeview Play

  • PieEatinGooner Ian Collett 🍒⚪️🏉 (@PieEatinGooner) reported

    Hotel again...means one thing...**** film on freeview 🥴

  • EE EE (@EE) reported

    @eddiepitman The EE TV service has actually been switched off from 31st March I'm afraid and no longer work. This includes Freeview channels and access to on demand apps. Any recordings you currently have will no longer be available and cannot be saved or transferred to another device. -Mark

    @ossukurisu Might be good for freeview never know when you might need it. i.e. If your internet is out for a few days etc.

  • ossukurisu Cb (@ossukurisu) reported

    @ashcustomworks Thanks Adrian! We dont watch freeview so its not plugged in and ive never even tested it. There is a Sky dish too which we will definitely never use.

  • Peter_Barker Peter Barker (@Peter_Barker) reported

    Is anybody else having issues with Freeview (No Signal on 3 & 4)?

  • Jaq__W Jaq_W (@Jaq__W) reported

    @SimonZerafa @JANUSZCZAK Sky Arts is free on Freeview channel 11 if that's any help... otherwise, I think Waldy had better answer that for you

  • AnnRobe10652125 Ann Roberts (@AnnRobe10652125) reported

    @SirPyecroft @moor_george Still watch it now on Freeview, Reegan was the man. Never watch line of duty.

  • FacileTalk daz boot (@FacileTalk) reported

    @ScarredForLife2 Bottom right ones scared the crap out of me. Up there with Davros. It was repeated last year, they showed a few Space1999s (I forget the freeview channel). But there was always some ****** in sick-bay who was mad/ perceived to be mad/ turned out to be a baddie they'd saved.

  • davidsm25057843 david smith (@davidsm25057843) reported

    @CarryOnDaniel I don’t watch freeview I don’t have that problem

  • mikeythenurse Mikey RN 90s Emocore 🏴 (@mikeythenurse) reported

    @chris__schulz @TVNZ I never use TVNZ on demand because Freeview on demand is better with the same content

  • curly1675 Michael Irving (@curly1675) reported

    @longy_uk @Samjohns89 @StanCollymore That's awful.

Freeview Tv

  • FreeviewAdvice Freeview Advice (@FreeviewAdvice) reported

    @RobLinaker Hi Rob, That would be lovely. However, the Freeview mobile app is only available on mobile devices and Freeview Play is only available on Freeview Play TVs and boxes. I'll certainly pass on your interest in the service being added to the Amazon Cube. Thanks C

  • FactsStomp Phil's Retro Life #retro (@FactsStomp) reported

    @TalkingPicsTV Should this programme have series link as it has 12 parts? Or if it has then it doesn't work on Freeview and I've had to wait for the guide to update and set next weeks episode. Also this is a wonderful serial the MST3K version is great as always.

  • daryl_millar Daryl Millar (@daryl_millar) reported

    I'm a pay-lite TV consumer (Freeview + no-contract streaming). I've never consider contract TV packages to be worth the expense. As streaming services multiply & get more expensive, I'm trying to narrow down what I subscribe to.

  • snaggs816bit Snaggs_appusseven🃏🕹🎮🍀 (@snaggs816bit) reported

    @Lauraleanne1982 @Ezzer_man @WilliamMcGinn11 **** that, it's ok for say Football or movies but not great for live TV. I'd dump our Sky and just buy a freeview or Freesat recordable box but the wife likes it. We literally only watch stuff on freeview these days.

  • FreeviewAdvice Freeview Advice (@FreeviewAdvice) reported

    @StevenBotha9 Hi Steven, Freeview is a service within the UK received through an aerial connection. As previously stated, you may want to look into getting a satellite service, you may be able to receive this from a provider within South Africa. I would advise looking online for more info.

  • djbradshaw64 Dave Bradshaw 💙 #IhavehadOxfordAZvaccine (@djbradshaw64) reported

    @docrussjackson When it launches I’m gonna post instructions per service (Freeview, Sky, Virgin etc) to block it.
