You used to be able to get a freeview card if you didn't want a subscription to Sky. But that was on the old analog boxes. Since digital, there have been no cards. As far as I know, you'll need a FreeSat box and LNB to get freeview via satellite.

Jeremy: It is not possible to receive Freeview via satellite as Freeview is only broadcast from terrestrial (i.e. land based) transmitters. You can get a Free To View (FTV) card from Sky, however it only enables reception of a few additional encrypted channels, as most non-subscription channels are broadcast Free To Air (FTA) and do not require a viewing card at all (i.e. all of the channels on Freesat and various others) so those channels will be received by a Sky box with no viewing card. A FTV card also allows a Sky box to assign the correct regional BBC & ITV channels on the EPG.

My local Transmitter Kilvey Hill only puts out a subset of the channels that are available elsewhere, and currently, for example 12 of the HD channels are not available.

Who decides what channel are broadcast, and is there somewhere to register dissatisfaction/ request improvement.

Most people have invested in HD TV and yet are only getting 5 HD channels - not very good.

Rick:

If you are talking about the channels that are/were on COMs 7&8, they are only temporary multiplexes and Arqiva have already closed COM8 for commercial reasons and channels have been merged (some closed) onto COM7, this will in any event close by June2022 at the latest.
Although it's an HD multiplex, there are only 6 HD channels on COM7, the remainder as SD channels.
For which channels are on which multiplex, see Channel listings | Freeview

There are only 25 (of 80+) main transmitters in the country that broadcast COM7 and they are the ones serving major areas of population in general.
There are 1100+ main and relay TV transmitters in the UK. Most relay transmitters only broadcast the 3 PSB multiplexes as the commercial operators do not consider it viable to pay for the extra equipment to broadcast COM multiplexes on relay transmitters serving only small communities.

The frequency allocations for transmitters are done in accordance with International Agreements, planning is usually done by companies like Arqiva in conjunction with OFCOM. There won't be any further changes in the near future once the 700MHz Clearance programme is complete.
Increases in availability of HD will only come about if existing SD multiplexes are converted to T2/HD. The multiplex operators might consider it worth starting that process but as it will require investment in equipment etc., in the current climate with covid-19 hitting business/advertising revenue/broadcasters etc. it might need a "push" from government. When that could be is anyone's guess.

Freeview and the BBC aren't currently reporting any problems with the 2 transmitters that you might receive (although reports could be delayed in the current situation).
If your aerial is not pointing NE (bearing 45 degrees) at the Cwmafon transmitter or a few degrees N of due W at the Kilvey Hill transmitter (aerial rods vertical for both) then we need a full postcode to look at your predicted reception.

There is some variable intermittent "tropospheric ducting" around at present - https://www.bbc.co.uk/rec….jpg affecting different areas at different times & not all channels are necessarily affected at the same time or at all.

Whether it be this, or a fault of some sort, and your channels haven't returned, then if you retuned whilst they were missing then it may have cleared the correct tuning, so you'll have to repeat a retune when signals are back to normal (you might have to try several times).

Very ell done & written!
I began writing myself very recently and have seen maqny blogs merely rework old ideas but add very little of worth.

It's terrific too see a helpful write-up of some real value to me and your readers.

It is actually on the list of things I need to emulate as a new blogger.
Reader engagement and ontent quality are
king.
Many wonderful suggestions; you have absolutely managed
to get oon my list of blogs to watch!

Carry on the terrific work!
Cheers,
Jenny

Chris.SE:
My message above is shown again below, after my last question the channels were all back within half an hour. Since last night we again have the same issue. Surely there is something that is not quite right, tropispheric or not?
