Freeview Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • The Evolution Of Life (@TEOL85) reported

    @FTWNEWCASTLE Will @SCN_channel and it's 5 star banner issue be sorted by the debut though as UK Wrestling Mayhem's picture quality is already butchered from the banner not hiding on Freeview when you play it. No doubt FTE would have the same Freeview Play issue.

    @FreeviewAdvice hi pick TV was not working so I done an auto tune and for some reason Pick and 4seven have both come off my channel list. Reset the TV tried again same thing. I tried this three times. Reset my whole freeview twice and again the same issue. Please can you advise

  • LLAMA RA1N3 (@LlamaRa1n3) reported

    @searchingfor81 @ChapMills @darrengrimes_ I could get Freeview, but the issue is the fact that I have to pay the TV licence fee in order to even watch ITV, C4, C5 etc, AND the BBC gets 90% of the licensing money still, to give to their biased shows and bosses. If you don’t pay the BBC, they bar you from other channels.

    It'd be great (after the miracle of NO VAR for our goals🥴🥳🥳) if VARdy can bury Bournemouth tomorrow at 7pm = for the Freeview posse Channel 11. They can't be as bad as Sp*rs surely?

    @sc_face Years back i had a freeview box that went off in bad weather

  • james ward-gwilliam (@jameswardg) reported

    @Jontys_Corner You forget sky and pay to view TV now controls most of the coverage If it was on Freeview the tv company would move the slots no major issues But being paid to. Sky won't budge and also they already lost a lot of viewing this season

    @MissDemeanor07 @BBC I want to cancel mine but I have freeview built in. What do I have to do to continue getting amazon prime and Netflix but not get the biased bbc. Is it just a case of disconnecting the aerial

  • S. (@007SW007) reported

    @FreeviewTV freeview is goos but i have communual aerial issues plus live in a valley, freesat is dreadful can you freeview develop a satellite or isp channel service as you and your teams know about tv care about consumers unlike Freesat.

    @Mamzy786 ******** you never support my onlyfans, you’re always asking for freeview

  • Eyi (@__eyii) reported

    When it dropped, we had made a temporary switch to freeview from sky. When we got back round to sky I never really had the urgency to watch it anymore. Plus I was extremely content with HSM2 so I didn’t really mind.

  • Mike Andrews (@mikepjba) reported

    @AlStewartOBE 50+ Channels on Freeview alone have no problem getting Ad Revenue-why should BBC..

  • Tim (@Priceyt) reported

    @Ja5eTee Not sure if it’s changed but back when my dad binned off his Tv (& therefore licence) he discoverd the licence actually covers the “equipment capable of receiving the signal” and not the actual watching. Therefore any tv with freeview etc built in would require one.

    @astro_trader @mikethebike17 Presumably you can watch programmes recorded when you still had a licence? My plan is to cancel Sky when contract up, buy freeview recorder, record stuff for a few months, cancel tv licence, watch only non-BBC catch up or pre-recorded stuff from before cancellation. #DefundTheBBC

  • Ann Roberts (@AnnRobe10652125) reported

    @teresadg0 For older people that's all we've ever known. I have Freeview, that's it. It was a bold move for me to cancel my licence, 3 month ago.

  • gmseed (@gmseed_T) reported

    @CarolineCoramUK The over-75s issue is a red-herring. The key 2 questions are: Why can't I watch ITV, Ch4 and Ch5 for free? Why isn't Freeview really free? No BBC Chairman has answers those simple questions. The answer demands a separate BBC subscription.
