An easy way to have Freeview online?
published on UK Free TV

Even if you can watch BBC One and BBC TWO online from November 27th, there is another service that allows watching of the most popular UK TV channels online.

TVCatchup - Never Miss A Show Again (click to get immediate access) gives access to these channels:

Unlike Zattoo - Freeview online there is no need to download any software first, so you can get watching without any delay.

There is also a TV guide built in:

There have been problems with the service from time to time, but the picture quality is very good.

Please give TVCatchup a go and let us know what you think!

Until the council eventually get around to installing the communial digital aerial system in these tower blocks I have no option but to use TV CatchUp for my TV. Unfortunately, though, I get nothing but trouble with it as it gives about 3 seconds picture, followed by about 30 seconds buffering the signal - if I'm lucky. Otherwise it then times out altogether & closes the connection. I've checked my Broadband Connection speed & that's fine, so that's not the problem.

Hiya Brian
We've just moved to BTVision at BN108AT and... No freeview! ANy thoughts - I've looked at your site not exactly sure what it's telling me - BT say they have no freewview avaliable as there info for this site though they also say that is likely to be wrong.
The analogue signal is very poor to - looking at the aerial cable it is in v. bad condition - black unhealthy copper etc...
Any thoughts welcome!
Many thanks
Great site btw!

Tony Lindsay: I would say that you are probably receiving your analogue TV from Newhaven relay transmitter. This is based not only on the Digital UK predictor, but a look at Google Streetview which shows the vast majority of aerials facing Newhaven.

A poor analogue picture is not forced to be the condition of your cable; it could be because your TV is tuned to a signal from another transmitter (to which your aerial does not face). The four analogue services are on channels 39,45,43,41 from Newhaven.

Come switchover, you will only get multiplexes BBCA (the BBC TV and radio channels), D3&4 (ITV1, ITV1+1, ITV2, C4, C4+1, E4, More4 and C5) and the HD channels.

See here for information on multiplexes:
Freeview multiplexes | - independent free digital TV advice

If you wish to get the other commercial multiplexes, then you will need another aerial on another transmitter that broadcasts these services *if* you can receive from such a transmitter at your location.

Hi, The rest of analog channels have been switched off for London, so for TV License payment (Regulation 9- ' received at the same time..'), seems to be crucial interpretation of time delay for TVCatchup streaming. Does it classify TVC programmes as NOT Live ? 'Dave' as well ?
