    Well I really didn’t think this over did I. Got rid of the broadband at home last October. Now, back home isolated from the girlfriend and no WiFi, no Amazon Prime other than on phone and no Netflix! Freeview just doesn’t cut it! 3 months of this shit too. Might learn to sow!

    @SallyAdcock5 Hi Sally, Freeview is a through aerial service and is only licensed to the UK.

    @Ernest_G_Bilko @StartledJesus @Matthew_70s80s @MsGasometer @Ellen38033339 @sbuma1 @sonychanneluk @DavidRSoul Making an assumption based on your Twitter bio, no Freeview transmitter in Devon currently carries Sony Channel (Freeview 48). Sony is currently carried by the local TV network on Freeview, there are no local stations south-west of Bristol. Dan RXTVlog

    I’ve never seen @VIDA_STARZ, but seeing a million commercials for it during this Starz freeview, and I’m reevaluating my life choices.

  • MrAlexWard Alex (@MrAlexWard) reported

    Doesn't matter how many times I teach her how to use the Guide on Freeview on the TV, she never gets it. She also gave up with mobile phones about 10 years ago.

  • john_carins John Carins (@john_carins) reported

    @piersmorgan Wrong again Piers. Let's have the games played to finish the season. Put the games on freeview TV and cheer up locked down sports' fans. A morale booster.

  • DJCanaryTweets 🟩 Michael 🟨 (@DJCanaryTweets) reported

    @RachelDex Freeview say the signal is variable at my new postcode which is odd because it’s not far from my previous one and uses the same transmitter. They have sent me new instructions which I will try when I have time.

  • diditrini Dionne Daniel (@diditrini) reported

    What a time not to have my tv sorted. A neighbour knocked my freeview dish off about a year ago and I never got around to sorting it out.Thankful for Chromecast so I can still see some channels

  • HelenRushby1 Helen Rushby - #FBProEU #Rejoin #FOM #SingleMarket (@HelenRushby1) reported

    @getnorthern I went to bed early last night. Nothing on. Woke up thinking they should repeat Brideshead Revisited and other excellent drama series over the next few months to help people through lockdown who only have freeview.

  • Nige_in_bingley Nige-In-Bingley (@Nige_in_bingley) reported

    55' tv still Available free to pick up. Freeview only. Hdmis broken. Scart or Aux only. Dm.

  • bklouuyghh Sunset# (@bklouuyghh) reported

    Considering we all all have to stay at home 24/7 or after work for some etc, what a load of crap on television tonight on all four channels, plus freeview, probably all weekend, ffs sort it out, not everyone has Netflix or Sky 😫😫😫

  • bklouuyghh Sunset# (@bklouuyghh) reported

    Considering we all have to stay at home now 24/7 what a load of crap on the television tonight, and probably all weekend, if you only have Itv bbc etc, and freeview channels ffs put something decent on.😫😫😫

  • Prestonian9 Prestonian (@Prestonian9) reported

    @tesssummers98 Simple answer, if you have SKY TV, cancel it. If you don't never get it. They will start to take notice of the public when the public show them that they are not wanted. I have over the years kicked both SKY & Virgin into touch, I refuse to pay any money to them. I watch Freeview

  • thebeatentracks Colin Bertram (@thebeatentracks) reported

    @janebramley I had one today from the maker of the Freeview box I bought last year... "we'll continue to support you through these difficult times." Oh, ok. Whatever.

  • plasticpilchard Nicola Thwaite (@plasticpilchard) reported

    Just had a scan through all of the freeview channels that I never watch to see if there was anything worth recording. Sony is showing Hart to Hart, Starsky & Hutch and Charlie's Angels. Can't find any episodes of Love Boat though!

  • SatoshiSuperst1 SatoshiSuperstar (@SatoshiSuperst1) reported

    @ShoufuXBT @themarketsniper if you can afford to enter his communty. There is nobody like him around. Even his freeview shit is incredible

  • timakempton Tim Kempton (@timakempton) reported

    @XboxSupport In spite of statements that they were working on it there is still no action on the Oneguide Freeview Australia problem. It's been almost 5 months xbox support and customer service is clearly non existent. #xboxsupportsux @xbox @XboxANZ @xboxinsider @XboxAmbassadors

    one girl said she pressed all the buttons on her remote and cartoon network came on freeview, you're a witch beloved release the devil inside you

  • zilly68q FourFour (@zilly68q) reported

    @RXTVlog #Freeview can go eat shit - it's impossible to scroll theough those channels without half having on adverts at any one time - and the other half showing old tripe.

  • TheDbleNgtve The Double Negative 🇪🇺 (@TheDbleNgtve) reported

    By easily accessible we mean stuff that most of us won’t have to go out of our way for. So, stuff on freeview first and foremost; then, Netflix; YouTube; and any streaming service with a decent free trial period #endoftheworldfilmclub (feel free to suggest a snappier name)

  • sarahstoney1984 Sj (@sarahstoney1984) reported

    iv got to freeview now wtf is going on with my tv

  • QNarrative Question The Narrative (@QNarrative) reported

    @NZStill Which of course the average Freeview watching braindead Kiwi who also reads and believes all Stuff's bias crap as gospel has no concept of. They imagine the States as "the big bad loud yankee's led by orange man" No idea that each State has it's own laws, city mayors too

  • SarahMckinlay29 sarah mckinley (@SarahMckinlay29) reported

    I'm having considerable trouble the last few weeks, my signal strength is still poor upstairs. I'm. Not needing a midi box for a freeview TV but how much would this cost

  • ariarose_xxx ARIA 🌹 (@ariarose_xxx) reported

    Having bad tech issues this morning 😩 my freeview is down for now so you can’t really see me. My pervcam is working perfectly though. Trying to sort it right now x

  • sjkv___t M. (@sjkv___t) reported

    I haven’t watched the news in years. Actually I haven’t watched TV in general in years. We never had Freeview and then Netflix came out.

  • parrcam Tom Parr (@parrcam) reported

    This right now on Paramount Channel (Freeview 31) and on the WWE App anytime was my last directing gig before the lock down. Hope everything gets back to normal soon. Stay safe and stay indoors everyone. T.x We are #NXTUK, #WWE Forever.

  • TonyTimes2 Tony (@TonyTimes2) reported

    Very weird to see WWE on (sort of) terrestrial telly; or at least free-to-air on Paramount Network freeview. Okay, it's NXT UK so it's the bottom of the ladder but still

  • notprandeep caitlin 🕴🏼 (@notprandeep) reported

    never had sky when I was younger so the only chance I had to watch nick and Disney was on freeview Saturday morning kids shows and they always used to put massive breaks in between the episodes and my mum would never let me watch them all the way through- that’s why I’m sad now

  • StirringTrouble Alexander Nekrassov (@StirringTrouble) reported

    @SimonZook I predict a massive crisis for British TV as people realise what absolute shit is being broadcast and how sick and twisted some channels on Freeview are. Total mediocrities gave hijacked television and block anyone with any talent. TV comedy is obscene.

  • snapperjack11 I am worth More than the Tories say (@snapperjack11) reported

    @DJGaryBaldy @HumaxUK No not of freeview. to be honest there is nothing I cannot watch using my little android box and a couple of apps and free vpn . total cost about 35 for a good box. Movies still in cinema down to old tv series

  • jrodgersni JoAnne Rodgers (@jrodgersni) reported

    @FreeviewAdvice here we go again I have limited number of channels on my freeview tv I spent a small fortune last year on new aerials and cabling and now the channels are only the basic channels I have checked everything and it is all fine so appears to be a problem your end

  • victimsvoice73 Victims Voice (@victimsvoice73) reported from Sheffield, England

    @reece_dinsdale @waynefoy @virginmedia Try message them on twitter they seem to get back to you quicker on social media .i stayed loyal to virgin for many years until the freeview episode when I changed to @SkyHelpTeam was so glad I did and it was cheaper by a lot virgin have no loyalty dad having same problem now x

  • 1Petewhite Peter White (@1Petewhite) reported

    @hgtv Stop showing old shit programs, why we watching 8 year old Shit programs.... update or F* off. Let another TV company have you Frequency / Slot, There's enough shi*e tv on Freeview let alone having you too!!! Sort it.

  • aerospacemango Andy Vines #VoteLabour #ForTheMany #NTAT #GTTO (@aerospacemango) reported

    @thetomslatter @GrahamDeacon69 @reece_dinsdale @Virgin @SkySports Yeah, but I'd never go with sky wherever owned it. I'm very much looking at freeview at end of April

  • KateLapage Kate Lapage (@KateLapage) reported

    @loopelu @BBCRadio4 @ClassicalMusic_ @ScalaRadio The local radio stations are broadcasting a service by the archbishop of Canterbury every Sunday, its during the early show 6am, other stuff is all online unless you delve into the depths of freeview which is just scary!

  • miss_traceydav Tracey Davies (@miss_traceydav) reported from Corby, England

    @CraigS0309 I agree but they shouldn’t be taking new customers - fixing only. (Since they generally charged extra for this service). some people are a bit naive presuming everyone has access to Freeview

  • miss_traceydav Tracey Davies (@miss_traceydav) reported from Corby, England

    @CraigS0309 People are arguing about this very advice. Take a Sky engineer, if your Sky box or dish breaks. One person argued it shouldn’t be fixed & use Freeview. Problem with that for me is 1) I don’thave Freeview as no aerial and 2) I pay Sky extra to cover equipment

  • Jamie8888 Jamie Griffin (@Jamie8888) reported

    @9_Moley @Foxtel I’ve never had a issue with them, always got a good deal, Freeview is trash

  • HelenFryer1976 Helen Fryer (@HelenFryer1976) reported

    @SkyCorporate @SkyUK New installations and home moves can wait, as can service calls. People can stay connected to the news by using their freeview in the tv until this all blows over. Buy an aerial... Sky tv is #notessential Time to put lives before profit or it’ll be too late. super spreaders...

  • baldypaul Paul McHugh (@baldypaul) reported

    @JP10n On the plus side, I wouldn't have to work from home. On the downside... ALL of my TV is online. I'd be left with Freeview, which is almost as bad as the telly we had growing up!

  • Matty_96 Matty Minton (@Matty_96) reported

    @liamjames2393 @Bakes_1981 @NoelClarke @AshleyWalters82 Only on freeview me, tough times down the neck end

  • thunderratz ThunderRatz (@thunderratz) reported

    Another reason to stay indoors. I've started watching TV in the lounge again on my late 90s TV (yep, you read that right). It's attached to a Sky box so I get Freeview channels. Sound and picture are fine, according to my poor hearing and bad eyesight. Don't okay boomer me!

  • pastirka Sharon (@pastirka) reported

    @Emwold1 @tindsaylully I don't either, just have freeview, Al Jazeera's good, the horror channel (mostly old Star Trek episodes) and Film4. Your neighbours must be a huge support to you. We're both blessed with that at least.

  • stanandthat Stanandthat (@stanandthat) reported

    @DUCKmagstoke The WiFi was shit, streaming was shit, customer support was shit, and I only watched stuff that was on Freeview anyway (Legit freeview or moody IPTV)

  • JudgeDewie Alex (@JudgeDewie) reported

    @edwarrj1 @mattstevensloop I don’t have Netflix, so I can’t comment and the main reason I don’t have it is I have 98 Freeview channels never get enough time to watch everything on there so maybe I shouldn’t comment 😂

  • DaGeezer007 Mike Oxmaul (@DaGeezer007) reported

    @tommyparry1 @skytv @CMAgovUK Sky are greedy *******, my biggest gripe is why ******** does it cost an extra £13 just for HD then another £13 for each Sky box in another room if you don’t have SkyQ. The recession will hit them in the Autumn when 1000’s will cancel in favour of just freeview and Netflix.
