    Build up your own library of DVDs and CDs because tonight's tv is just awful. I expect terrestrial tv to be bad every night but Freeview is now following suit. Just put your own stuff on. A bit of Genesis then Apocalypse Now.

    @WeaverRacing @Scotracing @pigeon_island I didn’t know Paul O’Grady was a radio DJ ! . Where I live on Freeview TV we loose our Radio 1 and 2 signal daily from 4pm . Comes on again midnight so what shows and presenters are on between these times are alien to me !!

  • hqbinders TomR 🔸🇪🇺💙 (@hqbinders) reported

    @Go4gold100 Not Freeview any more, but we can on Freesat. Might not be any help.

  • ChrisBagguley Chris Bagguley💙 (@ChrisBagguley) reported

    @UtchStokie @sailingbikeruk I have this problem every week. When MW frequency was available Stoke were always on Freeview. Since that went they're always on FM hence I can't listen nor is Sounds available.

    @rachii1979 @FairyLucindalu Radio commentary is on Freeview, Channel 720, never remember it being available through my TV but tonight it is so huzzah, COYB

  • CatIpswich Toby the Cat (Ipswich) (@CatIpswich) reported

    @ModernCassie Never knew it existed. Who will screen it on Freeview?

  • UKTVPlayHelp UKTV Play Help (@UKTVPlayHelp) reported

    @paulajt Likely the known issue we have with Freeview devices. A fix will be released soon this week so you can tell us if you still got the error.

    @Leon_C @gerry_berry I'm really not sure about the direction @BritishAlba's social media team have gone in though. They should stick to what they know - cheap tellies with crap freeview tuners.

  • Mathe_Musician MatheMusician (@Mathe_Musician) reported

    @aryomjapes @Beccabell05 @katemassey77 The beloved just records them & deletes the adverts if we might want to watch it again, or just fast forwards thro' them if not. We *never* see adverts because we never watch anything live. (Also only watch freeview 'cos there's more than enough to watch on there.)

  • fatch_phil Fatch 💙 🇮🇪 🇮🇲 🇬🇧 (@fatch_phil) reported

    Freeview TV is so **** I have resorted to watching #longlostfamily Same theme every programme so nothing new to see. Switch on radio. Licence fee money is spent on sport throughout the summer.

    @ipa1869 Hi, I am sorry to hear that you are having issues with your Freeview Reception. So, we can investigate this for you, can you please DM us your postcode and house name or number? Thanks, Dylan

  • Brekkietweets Brekkie 🇺🇦 (@Brekkietweets) reported

    Any news on when BBC4/CBeebies HD will return to Freeview? Seems odd to have such a problem at last minute given the space for another HD channel has theoretically been on the mux for over a year and Arqiva are forever squeezing in extra channels to their SD muxes.

  • AmazzinRosey Rosey amazzin 💙nhs (@AmazzinRosey) reported

    freeview total pants crap rubbish

  • rcscribbler Rob Chapman (@rcscribbler) reported

    @quantick @ArtyVapes @MJowen174 I caught one of his TV shows last week on a freeview channel we don't have here. I'd forgotten how rancid some of that was, Captain Kremen whatever it was called. God it was awful.

  • MarkLeicester7 MarkLeicester (@MarkLeicester7) reported

    @cjayanetti @CarefulTweeter Not sure about that. I have never sat down one evening to go online & watch it, but if it was on Freeview and there was nothing else on then I might channel hop onto it for a bit. It's niche, but unlike the right with their countless options, there's not much else similar.

  • MarkLanzarote MarkLanzarote (@MarkLanzarote) reported

    @ImmuneNaturally @LozzaFox @TalkTV Yup its **** on freeview atm

  • PipJGreen Pip Green (@PipJGreen) reported

    Frustrating that communal Freeview TV aerial in a @THHomes block still not working despite repair promised for last Wednesday. Signal distorted, intermittent or non-existant depending on channel. Minor, unless getting out for entertainment is an issue.

  • PiesMcQ Pies McQ (@PiesMcQ) reported

    @russty_russ when it came to an end, there were 5 mainstream channels, there was no freeview, no netflix, no streaming at all, to split the audience share- and sky was still crap. it was crap, and far outlived its natural life good riddance, pity it didn't end Noel Edmonds' career as well.

  • ImmuneNaturally John Kelley (@ImmuneNaturally) reported

    @LozzaFox @TalkTV For us TalkTV on freeview has become unwatchable the signal strength appears to much weaker this last week just enough for it be there but blocky with constant audio interruption as such unwatchable. They did the same thing to RT before banning it outright. All other channels ok.

  • wordspinster Debbie Cameron (@wordspinster) reported

    @snigskitchen These pitches are gold tbh, the main problem is that they're trying to become PM instead of finding a home on a midsize Freeview channel

  • nasirjamil Nasir Jamil (@nasirjamil) reported

    I am in KMTV office now and will be live at 5:38 pm on freeview channel 5 , Sky 159 . Talking about the current issues .

  • UKTVPlay UKTV Play (@UKTVPlay) reported

    @1974craig17 @UKTV @BBCBargainHunt Hi Craig, unfortunately some Freeview Play devices are still impacted by an issue we're experiencing around playback. We are really sorry for the inconvenience caused and are working on fixing this ASAP

  • Peter_Mugridge Peter Mugridge (@Peter_Mugridge) reported

    @Saltbar Good God no - I watch on a proper TV with Freeview and only very, very, rarely watch something on whatever channel's iPlayer service it is - and then only if it's something I miss when it's broadcast and I didn't record it either. Is that what you're doing? Online only viewing?

  • ArthurAssendune Sir Arthur Assendune 🇪🇺💙#FBPPR #FBPE 🇺🇦 (@ArthurAssendune) reported

    @DanielaNadj I wish the EU would runs a news channel on Freeview. RT did, Al Jazeera does, why not the EU? Euronews is available and OK as far as it goes, but it is quite limited. An opportunity for the EU to develop its own 'World Service'.

  • PaulCarmichaelV Paul Carmichael (@PaulCarmichaelV) reported

    @AndyCla05536869 @vimfuego1234 @PrisonPlanet programming (all offset by big profitable productions). Then we add maintaining the infrastructure of Freeview and FreeSat (how the poor and elderly traditionally access television). Oh & writing the scripts. And directing the shows. And editing them. Yeah, sure you could. (2/2)
