Improvements to Freeview EPG data in reception overlap areas
DMOL, the company that manages the distribution EPG (Electronic Programme Guide) is taking steps to improve the data that is carried to transmitters in parts of the UK where homes can receive more than one television region.
Starting with the North West England and Wales networks, the information for BBC and ITV programmes for both regions will be carried on each.
This means people using the Storeton transmitter, that carries both England (North West) and Wales services will have improved EPG data, helping with viewing and recording of regional programmes, for example of services on one network when tuned to another.
Storeton is being used a test for this overlap of EPG information, and will be rolled out to other "deliberate overlap" transmitters such at Caldbeck, Derby and on the the North Norfolk coast.
