B Fair: What do you mean by dropout zones? The TV Licence is not a subscription, it only funds the BBC and S4C who make their channels available as widely as possible, i.e. every national BBC channel is broadcast from all 1,100+ transmitters, S4C is broadcast from every transmitter in Wales, BBC Scotland & BBC Alba are broadcast from every transmitter in Scotland, as well as all BBC regions being available on satellite and iPlayer. Viewers in Freeview Lite areas who don't have satellite or cable are still receiving all the channels funded by the licence fee, the commercial channels that aren't available in those areas don't receive a penny of licence fee funding.

mike: It's a podcast which has been automatically transcribed by voice recognition software, nobody wrote it.

Miles: Presumably the TV is too old to have a SCART socket so you would need to use a Freeview box with a UHF modulator output, which is probably going to involve finding an older Freeview box as I don't think I've seen any Freeview HD boxes which have a modulator and SD only Freeview boxes haven't been on sale for a few years now.

Full technical details of Freeview

jimmy: You should be able to get a good signal from Rosneath using a vertically polarized aerial (elements pointing up and down) on a compass bearing of 292 degrees. Blackheath is only predicted to provide a good signal on the PSB3 and local TV multiplexs, all others are predicted to be poor or variable.

Paul Morris: Ventnor only covers around 3,000 homes, so chances are probably never.

Yates: Ask the broadcaster (Challenge is owned by Sky). Nobody on this independent technical help website can answer that.

Adrian: Try contacting Restore TV (the organisation setup and funded by the mobile networks to resolve 700/800MHz interference problems) at the link below. They should be able to send you a free plug-in filter if 4G/5G interference is predicted to be likely at your location.
