    @mindedmusically @SMCK_99 @SkyNews @SkyUK Sky's worthless these days anyway. I have a Freeview box thst costs me £0 a month, a Netflix account and if I'm really that desp (which is rare) to watch something on Sky I do a months subscription of Now TV and then immediately cancel 😏

    @jesswinlow Hey Jess, I am sorry about that. The developers for Freeview Play are working on the fix, I can't outline any dates just yet.

  • Berry_com Chris Berry (@Berry_com) reported

    @jlandpartners what terrible customer service and awful guarantee. Sent me a dud freeview box 2 months ago, and state its not their problem. Just keep sending me to humax to repair. 2 weeks no tv. Awful.

  • Dpoet58 Don (@Dpoet58) reported

    Half my Freeview channels off again, never had this trouble with analogue TV.

  • QWarrior123 Qwertykeyboardwarrior (@QWarrior123) reported

    @GazWatty1 @adamboultonSKY @SkyNews Gary, you can get Sky News on Freeview. You do not need to pay a subscription. Cancel now as I think you’re being ripped off.

  • Benevolentallt1 Dave Shields (@Benevolentallt1) reported

    @SkyNews are the scummiest scum media. Was delighted today to cancel my subscription and go to freeview. Don’t need @SkyUK #ScumMedia

    @FreeviewAdvice hi there. Please see DMs sent to Freeview account asking for support with channels that don't show (weird D sign with \ on it next to them) including Sky News, Pick and others. Many thanks

  • gazzzzzza20031 Gazza (@gazzzzzza20031) reported

    Not sure why anyone pays any subscription, nor the BBC TV stealth tax tbh... I have over 200 channels on my freeview TV, hundreds if I go through the internet, and don't read or watch MSM. Free yourself from the hundreds of £s you spend a yr, on **** you never really watch!

  • Jim_Gnomes Jim Mazu (@Jim_Gnomes) reported

    GET ALL THESE ******* POLITIONS OFF MY ******* SOCIAL MEDIA TIMELINES FFS JUST STFU THEY WORSE THAN COMMERCIAL ****** BREAKS ON FREEVIEW WHEN YOU'RE JUST GETTING INTO A FILM SAT WITH FAMILY. IF I WANTED TO SEE **** STAINS I'D NOT FLUSH AFTER HAVING A CRAP. ****** hell fire. 🙄

  • iMultitudes I Contain Multitudes🧩 🇬🇧 (@iMultitudes) reported

    @lisacoleuk Not sure, I'm also watching on Freeview rather than Sky. So that might help too.

  • KevinGr93307096 Kevin Green (@KevinGr93307096) reported

    @duncan175 @SuzyWrack Yeah as as you say on the red button. Would be better on bbc2 and advertising in the game is awful. Surely though one of the freeview channels should have the complete rights

  • realtimsin Tim Sin (@realtimsin) reported

    @thomasbeagle same problem for me. to solve I bought a smartvu dongle and its fabulous. Can turn on/off tv, has plex, freeview and other android apps and is cheap as.

  • SteveRoberts_14 Steve Roberts (@SteveRoberts_14) reported

    @TalkingPicsTV @juderogers Well talking pictures you have unknown power. The very fact that you mentioned calling Freeview brought the service back after months without - before I even had a chance to dial!

  • neilrholloway Neil ‘Captain’ Holloway ✌🏻👅 (@neilrholloway) reported

    On a totally different side issue the wife is watch Robin Hood Prince of Thieves with Kevin Costner on some dodgy freeview channel. It’s absolutely utter garbage.

  • ftakeith richard parkes (@ftakeith) reported

    @scottevans20 @GuidoFawkes @MediaGuido BBC tv subscription can't work because freeview/Freesat tv would have to scrapped, public service tv would be finished, it would cost £10b to break up the BBC, making BBC radio commercial can't work as it's public service radio to compliment commercial radio, so Scott get back

  • EmmaRaftery Emma Raftery (@EmmaRaftery) reported

    So far this week we have had a bees nest, no internet, a water leak and now the Freeview box appears to have broken. What else can go wrong 🙄 #OneThingAfterAnother

  • CaptainLibatron Libby (@CaptainLibatron) reported

    @CfPS_Ed Yeah we can only get about half the Freeview channels such is the signal in East Kent. It's ok I don't feel too bereft!

  • TalkingPicsTV Talking Pictures TV (@TalkingPicsTV) reported

    @CariadDraig We are available as freeview channel 81, so you should be able to see us - give them a call if you are having problems receiving us.

  • gildy61 Random Jottings of Gildersleeve (@gildy61) reported

    @Charles69700909 I wonder why satellite radio never took off here like Sirius in the States. Of course we do have streaming via Freeview/Freesat and the internet. Just woke up here. Seemed quiet so thought lets go to out and get that salad. Looked outside and its still blowy so I don't know.

  • daryl_millar Daryl Millar (@daryl_millar) reported

    I wish @FreeviewTV would make the Freeview Play app available on smart TV devices to act as a backup for when the transmission signal went down.

  • keithja56039770 Gerald the special (@keithja56039770) reported

    @FreeviewAdvice hi guys, ever since the upgrade of our local mast, we have struggled to get quite a few channels on freeview/ play, I have a humax freeview play recorder and a Sony 4k TV and both are struggling to a decent signal now, from Hougham transmitter Dover.

  • Mhichil1 Mhichil (@Mhichil1) reported

    "Freeview. Prepare for the worst, hope for the best." What a state of affairs. I wonder if my eldest sister watches TV. Of course. She'll be trying to get her T.V set arrested, by now, for making all these 'dire prognostications'. Freeview: Your corporate paranoid schizophrenic.

  • TEOL85 The Evolution Of Life (@TEOL85) reported

    @AEWrestling @funnybrad @CodyRhodes @LanceHoyt @brlive @FiteTV @TonyKhan @SkySports @SkyUK Plus on Sky Box Office it's no internet based fiddle to set it up it's just press select on the event from day 1 on the service and off your viewers go better than the dead channel anyway. Keeping on Freeview a night and a bit later gets the free to air viewers too.

  • LewisMcNamara14 Lewis (@LewisMcNamara14) reported

    Just got hit with the old "Who pays the virgin bill" when I said the programme on TV was ****. Hit back with.. "You, but I bought the ******* TV and it's BBC 4 so it would be on Freeview anyway you daft ****" Not talking to me now. 🙃
