Freeview Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • Bearly Dancing (@DeftDan) reported

    @thedailymash My problem with the license fee is that there’s no way to block just the @BBC channels while keeping the other freeview channels that get none of the license fee! How is it fair that the BBC get all the fee but also get the right to stop me watching @ITV or @Channel4 etc!

    @Allison79721704 @ThisisDavina @JillAshleyJone1 @BorisJohnson @10DowningStreet @38_degrees @BBC If BBC goes tits up I'd be quite satisfied with Freeview, radio and a sub to Dan Snow's "History Hit" - £5/mth I don't watch American "Reality" TV or soaps or Dumbed Down Game Shows I don't watch Sky Sports or Sky Film channels I'd love to stop paying Murdoch money every month

    @FreeviewTV how can we watch these shows every time we retune our tele we lose channels pictures are more pixleated then when we first tuned our television in other words freeview is shit

  • mark oconnor (@markoconnor2015) reported

    can't believe since the @FreeviewTV tv retune on the 20th in the north west #winterhill @Forces_TV has gone missing can't get it on my bt or freeview now it was my favourite channel aswell might even cancel my @bt_uk now even though it was on freeview

  • ♥️💄Daisy Domergue💄♥️ (@MissDomergue) reported

    @lukehastwatter I agree completely. I've cut down to freeview and netflix. Adding on disney plus will still be far cheaper for us. Just couldn't justify the cost of sky anymore.

    @WeAreWST @hitmanholt @BetVictor Disgusted that it wasn't on Freeview. Refuse to pay for other channels. The @WeAreWST should support the BBC and ITV it is they that broadcast and supported it first.

    @HideshPatel @virginmedia You need to read your t and. C and also it ws only a few hours it was down is that really the end of the world. Why not put freeview on Forbes an hour. Like normal ppl may have done as things go wrong have you never done a job wrong at work and put you back a few hours

  • Vicki (@vickistarlet) reported

    Wtf is with the tv service, barely any channels working #freeview

  • Howie (@dj_howie_t) reported

    @SandraHan62 @tmt1958 @timpy32001 @KurlyKrissy @ThisisDavina @BorisJohnson @10DowningStreet @38_degrees They're referring to the other terrestrial channels. They've nothing to do with the BBC but u need a license to watch them. Freeview it isn't. Once BBC is a subs service then we'll see how valued their content really is. They could have a global audience earning them way more.

  • Chris Bardell (@chrisbardell) reported

    @nikkijfox "Subscription model" is a total red herring anyway, impossible to achieve on Freeview/Freesat without £billions of hardware junked/repurchased to support encryption model or compulsory streaming via broadband (more £). It's the BBC-basher's unachievable *********

  • This Is Me (@KellyTFisher) reported

    @lacuchinaNZ We lost the remote to our freeview box in the bedroom. I'm stuck with Netflix. I currently cannot watch HGTV and yell at the stupid people whinging while buying houses

  • Lynn McCaghren🦅🇺🇸❤️🌊 (@FMccaghr) reported

    watching your favourite TV show. When you see these kinds of problem, this is normally because your Freeview receiver isn't getting a strong clean signal. Would be interested to know if any of you have this problem and fixed it. RT please.

  • It's not a Beard. It's a Goatee⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (@4dger) reported

    @mand_rainbow If you have an old sky box in your house swap it with your broken one. Even if the card doesn't work in it you can still get all the freeview channels 👍👍

  • Professor Yaffle (@HeresBagpuss) reported

    @ThisisDavina @BorisJohnson @10DowningStreet @38_degrees The only way to ensure the BBC gets its head out of that sand is to stop the licence fee and make it either subscription service or a combo of freeview & subscription. That would then force accountability & responsibility with their accounting & use of resources. #HeadInSand

  • John M Knox ➡️ (@johnmknox) reported

    When it works the cable TV provided by #virginmedia is better quality than Sky and their equipment is also better, however, it is vastly more expensive and their customer service is appalling. We really need more competition in Cable and Sattelite providers. Freeview is a joke.
