    @marktewk I saw that. But the likelihood that everyone will have fast broadband in 6 yrs time is unlikely. Also if people can't afford just over £12/month for a TV licence how the hell will they afford broadband connection & a subscription fee. Freeview is the way the poor can watch TV.

  • Skewering_Socialism (@Rupert_Travis) reported

    The endlessly repeated #peloton ad on the Freeview channels is the most irritating 30 seconds I've ever encountered. It is driving me crazy and I will never, ever buy one of those damn things.

    @Frankieboyfran1 @LochSmall Channel 81 on your freeview. Its the worst film youll see for a long time

  • mark Hughes (@Mark56623345) reported

    @christigoesloco @a516digital Not a problem on other platforms of course, and not a problem on the freeview fallback system, but a problem for older tv and box users.

  • mark Hughes (@Mark56623345) reported

    @christigoesloco @a516digital Yes i know they time share, but the issue costriants are with freeview, but those with freeview should be ok on the fallback system, the point im trying to solve is a way to equal out things so everyone has some sort of service,

    @jennyrickson Get rid of any sky box, Freeview, Aerial cable, sat cable and cancel your DD. You can go on their website and do the declaration thing. Will stop them sending Capita thugs to harass you for two years, I think. We just use an Amazon firestick with a Netflix and prime sub.

    @ChrisBrownSport @winklepin @BBCiPlayer I am watching on Freeview but my signal is very off and on. The iPlayer much better as goes through my WiFi . Grrrrr annoying

  • Griff Griffith 💙 (@GriffAurora) reported

    @RaymondSnoddy @EvansTheCrime Government have admitted that current free-to-air technology cannot support a subscription service, which requires some form of encryption & password to work. The cost of retrofitting Freeview and every TV in the land would be massive - who will pay?

  • Nobody told me there'd be days like these! (@ivedonethatokx) reported

    @TalkingPicsTV I really miss Talking Pictures channel, it was brilliant for my bedbound or less stimulated input days...With you from the start, and now you're gone..(and never called me mother!)Ever since the last update of my freeview ,wherefore art thou 😢?

  • Mike Tictock 💙🇪🇺🇮🇪🌍🚴‍♀️#FBPE (@MTictock) reported

    @_emma__mc Now you got me , I don't know why , but I can't do Casualty. Too much drama. But #Holby is a weekly never miss. But Jac Naylor now gone so I am fuming. Not paying my TV fee now. Classic Holby is on Freeview channel 20 "Drama" occasionally. Have fun.

    @KeepUpWithKFabe @SCPBPodcast The twitch stream doesn't work in the UK, it says its not supported in my country. Gutted really as ive watched Impact since it was TNA from 2007 onwards on freeview channels, youtube, watchwdotcom etc

  • Chris Merriman (@ChrisTheDJ) reported

    @htwcentral @FreeviewAdvice @FreeviewTV Yes. LG says it's coz they broadcast in MHEG instead of HBB. This is a lie. They all broadcast in both now. The fault is with the firmware but they're saying not. If they physically can't pick up all channels (as opposed reception issues) it shouldn't be sold as Freeview Play.

  • Alan Scobbie (@AlanScobbie) reported

    I don’t trust anyone younger than me that still watches linear tv but I’d rather have bbc content churned out on a channel than the alternative crap. Have you ever seen what’s taking up the freeview bandwidth?

  • Sarah Gibbons (@SarahG20123) reported

    Anyone have any tips for Freeview signal/TV not working? Just went off yesterday. Neighbour who shares aerial has no problems but tv will play recorded programmes so think it must be a signal problem. #freeview @FreeviewTV #TV

  • TreeHouseBookshop #MusicMatters (@TreeHouseBkshop) reported

    @SarahG20123 I did have a problem earlier - the picture froze, though the audio carried on, and my remote wouldn't do anything. Eventually my freeview/YouView box switched itself off and rebooted itself. TV is off now, but it was OK to the end of the programme after that.
