CBS Drama
Tuesday 26 December 2017 9:54AM

I am a confused elderly lady and I hope you can help me by explaining why I can no longer view my favourite films on CBS Drama after 11pm. I have been viewing this channel after 11pm since last March but all of a sudden it goes off air at 11pm with the notice on screen to "Load MHEG-5". Radio Times has for the last month been printing the usual films for this slot from 11pm to 5am (Freeview 71) even tho they are not being shown. RT says they can only print what the channel gives them. I rang a number for CBS Drama who seem to know nothing about it. Strange as their advertisers should be unhappy that no-one can see their expensive advertisements. They could not tell me if they had moved these late night programs to another channel. Odd. As you deal with reception is there a way of loading MHEG-5 whatever that is or should I be looking for another type of television, in which case what would that be called? I note that channel 93 is also affected by this cut off point. So are they are no longer "Freeview" channels after 11pm.? Any help, even to say nothing I can do, will be gratefully received.
