    Omg.... So pleased we now have @SkyArts on freeview, after the horrible day of news ....great to have to have ‘celebrity portrait artist’ with the brilliant @JDBakewell

  • 5overthemoon Ruth (@5overthemoon) reported

    @cool_grandad He imo, honestly has no coherent ideas to mend any problems his royals have definitely contributed to. +He's only just publicly on Freeview tv, stated there's any crises. We experience all crises ourselves. If royals must stay too expensive for all our lives-Why the nothing much?

  • wonkyalison wonkyalison (@wonkyalison) reported

    Hi @FreeviewAdvice Is there a known problem with on-demand services on freeview+ boxes today? Ours won't play anything on BBC iPlayer, just comes up with "something's gone wrong" message. Despite software update, re-tuning channels & checking network & settings still no joy.

  • ChrisDoughty32 Chris Doughty (@ChrisDoughty32) reported

    Youth of today have it so easy. Never had to tape the ten minute freeview or anything, they’ve never lived.

  • adamdwhitehouse adam whitehouse (@adamdwhitehouse) reported

    @Victorialouowen @bt_uk Thata the problem... they sosnt check, just gave me a new contract with a freeview based box that doesn't work. Freesat only according to aerial company.

  • Super_Secretary Trace (@Super_Secretary) reported

    @mrtomsimpson Ohhhh blimey. Am no help at all with Freeview, sorry 😪

  • Alex77655154 Alex (@Alex77655154) reported

    @DefundBBC Wish they'd just shut up & encrypt the signal. Even Freeview TV's have a card slot on the back. 🙄

  • JSbairn JokeThamson’sBairn (@JSbairn) reported

    Why is it you can put Freeview 232 on, on any given day, and they’re debating all sorts of issues, but not Holyrude?

  • CliffordSaund13 Clifford Saunders (@CliffordSaund13) reported

    @ProfBrianCox And, to the best of my knowledge, have never starred in a B movie horror flick being forever repeated on channel 70 - Freeview UK. I'll get beyond 20 minutes yet.

  • a516digital Mike (ex-a516digital) (@a516digital) reported

    @SonOfPurple At this point, Freeview EPG rules allow the new broadcaster to shuffle its channels, using the channel number of the newly acquired channel to promote one of its other services up the channel list. The original channel either closes down or continues as a 'zombie' channel. (2/2)

    @CoxHelp freeview isn't working in acorn TV says it's free but when I click on it it says there are no free episodes. I've spent over half an hour with 2 different reps I'm on hold now. Please fix this

  • Joie_de_Vivre__ Joy M 🌊VoteBlue⭐36days BLM🌊🌊🌊 (@Joie_de_Vivre__) reported

    @CoxComm we're having freeview here in Phoenix and it isn't working it says watch acorn TV for free but when I click on it there are no free episodes. For a half an hour with two different reps no one knows what's going on. I'm on hold with the rep now. Fix it

  • SamRuss19 Sam Russell (@SamRuss19) reported

    We need ITV4 HD!!!!!! This Roland Garros coverage is poor on freeview. 🤬🤬🤬 @ITV4 @ITV

  • alanwm1986 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Alan Martin 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 (@alanwm1986) reported

    @fudgiela Freeview has the same problem

  • Thistlemoon11 Vince (@Thistlemoon11) reported

    @GranadaReports where are you, I've got Yorkshire news on freeview, I wanted watch the bloke on a mobility scootey splashing petrol round a bank in Blackpool, never thought I'd type that in one sentence!

  • JustinCasey198 Justin Casey (@JustinCasey198) reported

    @GranadaReports We’re getting Yorkshire news! Is it a freeview issue?

  • DavidB1996 DaVinky Brisbane (@DavidB1996) reported

    Bit of a niche tweet: anybody in central Scotland having issues with Freeview reception?

  • Boro19 m (@Boro19) reported

    @WeAreWST @BetVictor @CLSnooker Not interested unless it Freeview. Paying for TV Licence is bad enough without paying more out especially these days. Freeview used to be good enough before EuroSport, Sky etc. Minimum wage people that had supported the game for years now asked to pay twice - Licence + subscribe!

  • GoodchildByName Nicola Goodchild (@GoodchildByName) reported

    @MattHemley I ve just got a Freeview tv and was thrilled to discover Sky Arts!!! I ve never seen Phantom so didn't want to dip in half way through!

  • KellyAllen01 Kelly Allen (@KellyAllen01) reported

    @SkyHelpTeam we can't watch ITV HD due to a technical fault. There isn't actually a problem with ITV transmitters as it's ok on Freeview.

  • Booskiboomkin Nigel Nichols (@Booskiboomkin) reported

    @4Viewers I never watch Channel 4, don't have a working Freeview antenna and rely solely on OD services. Imagine how pissed I am because I can't watch the 1 show I want to & only because Matt Lucas might make it bareable since it left the BBC, because none of your OD services work well.

  • Paul_Dunk Paul (@Paul_Dunk) reported

    @KaylaF1 It’s been good for the apps, we haven’t had any issues. We use Prime, iPlayer, Freeview play, 4OD, 5 player etc, it’s android based so got Google home too. Only app it hasn’t got (which my Samsung’s got) is the BT Sport one.

    @LSW12612672511 @williamRN7 Freeview is the digital signal for TV that replaced the old free to air service. BUT it requires a digital TV receiver or ariel. You get a few dozen channels. Cheaper to buy a Roku or other internet TV Stick & ditch the TV Licence.

  • TalkingPicsTV Talking Pictures TV (@TalkingPicsTV) reported

    @msjanebond007 There shouldn't be a problem Jane, how are you watching us? Freeview etc, so we can look into it.

  • Our_Man_Flint Ash Brown (@Our_Man_Flint) reported

    @tvguideshows Hi your website doesn't work properly on Chrome - links not working e.g. link to 'Freeview'

  • TalkingPicsTV Talking Pictures TV (@TalkingPicsTV) reported

    @robdriscoll1 We aren't aware of a problem Rob, but so we can check can you tell us how you are watching us please? Freeview etc

  • VinylOffers Vinyl Offers (@VinylOffers) reported

    @VinylCarBooty normally they are edited down with sky arts now on freeview & freesat the sales effect might be even greater , time will tell

  • PopsRamjet Roger Carpenter (@PopsRamjet) reported

    @the_stuart_reid It’s the same on Freeview, the regional news bit after the national news is never available in HD, it’s always a message on red background. As you say not really a problem but still odd...
