Gary Durbin: Do you have the HD channels on 101-105? Forces TV is on COM8 which you are predicted to receive from Crystal Palace (although you will need a wideband aerial).

When are we going to get Hogans Heroes back in the evening ? Also F Troop?
Your channel also with its news is the only one worth watching even with all our Sky Channels.
Kind regards

I suggest you contact the broadcaster as this is not their website nor that of Freeview.

I live in south Hampshire.

I am able to receive Forces TV on Free Sat.

I am NOT able to receive Forces TV on Freeview. I have tried retuning but with no success.

Could someone please explain why I am unable to receive Forces TV on Freeview?

Young: Forces TV is on the COM8 multiplex, along with BBC Four HD and Quest HD. Can you receive either of those channels, or any other HD channels?

Peter: South Hampshire covers a wide area and doesn't tell us which transmitter you're receiving. If you provide a full postcode we can check whether you should be able to receive the COM8 multiplex which carries Forces TV.

Les Holden: Forces TV is on the COM8 multiplex, along with BBC Four HD. If you provide a full postcode (SO50 covers a wide area) we can see what the predicted coverage is at your location. It is also on Freesat 165.
