    @abbeylinegold I was, but i just looked up channel 4. I'd agree I mainly grew up with 4 I my TV does not even have freeview Just the smart thingy Too many channels showing too much crap between the rare gems that do exist cross platform and new platform

    @loosewomen Never saw it. I only have Freeview. Harry and Meghan have totally disrespected the Queen.

  • TheRealDemonLee Der Oberst (@TheRealDemonLee) reported

    @freesat_tv can you advise why the drama channel of Freeview is so bad lately

  • gildy61 Random Jottings of Gildersleeve (@gildy61) reported

    Yesterday...I gained extra channels and a stronger signal re-connecting wires into the TV and using a new Freeview box/recorder. Today...a couple of channels are breaking up. Lost one together whether I watch on the tuner within the TV or via the new box. 😠

    @Kevin_M_Aquino 1/n So, I have my T1 image and I’ve marked three fiducial points on it, which I exported to a json file. the numbers in the json correspond to the coordinates labelled “RAS” in freeview. so far so good. my problem is that I need these points in what freeview calls “tkReg RAS”

  • Sandy_Bakes Sandy (@Sandy_Bakes) reported

    @FreeviewAdvice I have been without signal for freeview for three days, are there any issues going on at the moment??

  • Christo65209308 Christopher cousin of the late George Michael (@Christo65209308) reported

    @salihughes @danielmaier More boring **** on tv to come. I assume FREEVIEW takes the punishment!!

  • adamjk11 Adam Kewley (@adamjk11) reported

    @TraceHits When will you have your own channel on Freeview? I know your on channel 271 but I have problems connecting my TV to the Internet. I hope in the future that you will have this channel launched properly on Freeview. I have to watch you on Sky.

  • gildy61 Random Jottings of Gildersleeve (@gildy61) reported

    So Friday. What is in store? Esp in a lock down. Tentatively...the wheelie bin out first thing. Post office visit. Prescription to order. House tasks. Study the Freeview recorder box. I don't think I need any food shopping.

  • Bluebellwood5 Bluebellwood (@Bluebellwood5) reported

    @bbcpress Why do I have to pay for a "Service" I don't use anymore other than watching repeats of BBC repeats which aren't even televised by The BBC anymore? I watch Freeview channels but not any BBC ones anymore.

  • ChocChocGirly81 Tasha ... #MissAnxiety 🇯🇲🇬🇧 (@ChocChocGirly81) reported

    @MartinSLewis This is nothing new. Each year @skytv & @virginmedia are always hiking up their prices to something else & for what bb that doesn’t work & tv channels you never watch. I’d rather stick to Freeview from now on & find myself a cheap bb by shopping around.

  • Enright2214 George Enright (@Enright2214) reported

    @FreeviewAdvice is there a known issue in the Peterborough area? I’ve noticed we’ve lost many Freeview channels and I can’t see why. Numerous re tunes haven’t resolved the problem

  • DazzR Darren R (@DazzR) reported

    Anyone else got problems with ITV HD on Freeview/YouView, or is it just us? @itvstudios

  • gildy61 Random Jottings of Gildersleeve (@gildy61) reported

    I thought to see HD channels on Freeview I needed a HD TV. My TV...hardly used is 9 years old but the Freeview recorder box and combined Freeview tuner I have added has...improved the signal strength. Possibly given extra channels and I can see the HD channels do exist.

  • angelasiddall28 Angela Siddall (@angelasiddall28) reported

    @virginmedia No it's OK today, I've never had any equipment upgrade in all the yrs I've been with you only a new bb box and a 4dbs added which now prevents me from using my aerial wire on freeview

  • ChrisFrimston Chris Frimston (@ChrisFrimston) reported

    @itvpeston Please fix the lip sync issue on both Freeview HD and Satellite

  • Sarnie365 Coops (@Sarnie365) reported

    Hi @LGUK @LGUKCare. I was going to buy a new TV (probably CX65) but it not having @FreeviewTV FreeView Play meant you lost a customer. Utter shambles. Well done.

  • KichiGoto Malachy (@KichiGoto) reported

    @drawnrobots They had a really bad rip of it on one of the freeview movie channels on sky I watched it and the bit where Gamera does his wee acrobatic spin put a big smile on my face.

  • BameWiltshire BAME in Wiltshire (@BameWiltshire) reported

    @OliverDowden. HELP. Please, please do something about Freeview TV. The content is negative, woeful and not fit for purpose - and for some this is all they have. It could be a tool for positively impacting on the nations mental wellbeing.

  • Malum_Bear Bear (@Malum_Bear) reported

    @bantalols They're showing that on Forces TV, on Freeview. It's still ****.

  • Jamesspringburn james... (@Jamesspringburn) reported

    @skytv i know im a few days behind on my payment and i understand why u cut off my service but why cant i access freeview tv.

  • danjewellmedia Dan Jewell (@danjewellmedia) reported

    The postponement of the Blackpool game means the #asfc game at Crewe will be on all frequencies @BBCLancsSport (95.5/103.9/104.5FM, DAB, 855MW or Freeview 720) if you fancy syncing up your iFollow with the commentary. Sadly not a good enough signal to be overseas...!

  • litvank debbie *********** (@litvank) reported

    @transpenderism it's for the 'freeview' service lol

  • parami parami 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏳️‍🌈#BothVotesSnp (@parami) reported

    My freeview box isn’t receiving a signal. Just stopped. Wonder if it’s the weather. Wifi fine which is a relief. 🤞

  • GuidingBreeze Guiding Breeze🏳️‍⚧️ #blm (@GuidingBreeze) reported

    No reply and they have just said they are raising prices by 10% - time to switch to freeview as I'm not going to support a company who rainbow washes for pride but doesnt back that up with action

  • ChrisTheDJ Chris Merriman (@ChrisTheDJ) reported

    @LGUKCare It's the 55UM7400PLB. Problem affects the entire UM7400 range, and means the hybrid channels on Freeview (225-256) show as "Invalid Service". Freeview have said that all their services are now in HBB as well as MHEG, but the sets still don't pick up the HBB.

  • tommo515 Clive T #Football has come home to Plough Lane! (@tommo515) reported

    @ladymcbethany Yes, compact and old style with a set-top box. Same in the kitchen, for convenience. Main tv and kitchen run off the big digital aerial with a signal splitter/booster. Bedroom runs off original analogue aerial but still a perfect picture. No Sky TV: Freeview more than adequate.

  • tocatchathief8 💙🌻🌹John McCarthy🌹🌻💙 (@tocatchathief8) reported

    Hi @discoveryplus quick question. Watched "My Greatest Dishes" ep3 & ep4 tonight on Food Network via Freeview. So if i want to watch them again if i didn't record them, i have to pay to do so, even though it's a Freeview channel? I assume adverts aren't taken out of paid eps??

  • JessJBT Jess Jordan (@JessJBT) reported

    Freeview down in ME17 area since yesterday. Can’t get anything other than bbc. @FreeviewTV @FreeviewAdvice Please sort!!

  • sstrauch1955 Sameh (@sstrauch1955) reported

    @FreeviewTV For several days now, the TV guide in the Freeview website has not been updating. For example, right now, at 17:27, it says that BBC News at Six is on. Can you please fix it?
