    @WithRobsons Freeview TV, lots of crap channels but you don't pay a subscription 👍

  • OllyBellamy Olly Bellamy (@OllyBellamy) reported

    Hopefully the Sue Gray report will be more Judge Judy than Punch and Judy. If she's bottled it then the best she can hope for in retirement is narrating Police Interceptors on 5star Freeview Channel 34. Which is actually not a bad gig in itself.

    @blujreviews I don't drink, I don't smoke, cook all my own food from basic ingredients, cut back on monthly payments (e.g basic phone package, only freeview TV). Savings mount up fast. Never spent money I didn't have - no credit.

    @_DuncanFox_ Hi Duncan, 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

    @sliderulesyou Sympathies. I just pray my old man never finds GB News on the Freeview.

  • daryl_millar Daryl Millar (@daryl_millar) reported

    While channel-hopping, I just caught a segment on a "news" channel in which some wazzock was joking that his gorilla mask was non-binary. That probably narrows it down to 2 Freeview channels in the UK.

  • M_I_Ross Matthew Ross (@M_I_Ross) reported

    @GaymerChat Yeah, I’m going to watch Stranger Things 4 then probably cancel. I’m tempted to cancel the package altogether and rely on Freeview and assorted streaming apps on the Apple TV. Maybe I’ll make a dent in my massive pile of unread books? (Spoiler: I will not…)

    @DavidWhiteleyTV Freeview SD no problem. Freeview HD I get Meridian. Minor issue in the grand scheme of things though considering what's happening elsewhere in the world.

  • LwtEmmaBird Sarah Harbour (@LwtEmmaBird) reported

    Hi @rmc47 - @melharbour suggested you might be able to help. Any ideas why a Freeview TV signal might disappear in the middle of the day? We've retuned, but it works fine until about 8.30am, then pixelated before finally displaying 'no signal' - so can't believe it's the tuning

  • sharon_hall1977 sharon hall (@sharon_hall1977) reported

    @FreeviewAdvice stop moving the channels around it's doing my head in! Freeview is ****!

  • ruth_forrester ruth forrester (@ruth_forrester) reported

    @Channel4 hello, I have not watched C4 on freeview for like a year because no matter what I do to try to reset pw I cannot login

  • The4thSong ChelseafortheCup (@The4thSong) reported

    i did a freeview retune and now im getting liverpool tv instead of manchester and it sucks they dont do old style comedies like benny hill, hale and pace

  • TalkingPicsTV Talking Pictures TV (@TalkingPicsTV) reported

    @1gobbyozzy We are still very much on Freeview 82, Brian. If the problem persists it might be worth speaking to the Freeview helpline? Freeview advice line on 03456 505050.

  • yopintar84 Painterman (@yopintar84) reported

    @pennylongstckng Can't watch mainstream TV any longer, it's just infested with woke, poisonous lies & drivel. Not good I appreciate but these days I either spend time channel hopping through Freeview or don't even bother to put the TV on. Forget Netflix etc, just the same mind controlling garbage

  • Huriye Huriye (@Huriye) reported

    @dannykellywords I don't feel so bad now with just Freeview and a radio. 📻🎙

  • em_doapsi Emma-Lucy (@em_doapsi) reported

    @AuthorSJB @SophyRidgeSky @nadhimzahawi Freeview- damn autocorrect

  • rickyblack1970 ricky black the BAM (@rickyblack1970) reported

  • IsItBroke Phil Crawley (@IsItBroke) reported

    Just flailed past @GBNEWS on Freeview; a year on and their studio pictures still look awful and the audio sync is wrong. Did every broadcast engineer refuse the job offer?!

  • FoxfordMr Mr. Eric Foxford (@FoxfordMr) reported

    @MrJohnNicolson @terrychristian @Channel4 She’s lying. Selling off Channel 4 is prologue to selling off the BBC. Only rich Tories will benefit from it. The poor will have to pay more for subscription TV than they ever would for the BBC, ITV C4, C5 and Freeview. All that for around 47p a day licence fee.

  • dearaunty .Dear Aunty (@dearaunty) reported

    @matthewmoloney Awful movie - next time its on freeview i will give it a whirl - I'm not promising though!

  • ErinMiddlemass2 Erin Middlemass (@ErinMiddlemass2) reported

    …as well as numerous add on packages and this money is being completely wasted. The customer service is absolutely shocking. I have relied on now tv rather than freeview etc for television in my home and am now left with nothing even though I’m paying upwards of £25 a month.

  • Christo25577660 Christopher Murfin (@Christo25577660) reported

    I don't know what happened last night but at about 9 O'clock last night, I completely lost all of my Digital Freeview TV channels. All I could access was all of the TV channels via Samsung TV Plus, and that was it. Whether it was a power outage at the transmitter, I don't know.

  • BarbaraBone3 Barbara Bone (@BarbaraBone3) reported

    Am I the only person whose Freeview constantly goes down? Bad weather - signal breaks up, good weather ditto. Sick to death of it. Forever retuning. Have got signal booster in loft & plug in booster in living room. Bring back analogue!!!

  • TomPoole007 Tom Poole (@TomPoole007) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virtualash tell your boys your TV quality is poor on Freeview. Whale's head will not look fuzzy. This can't be allowed to happen.
