I'm at Sidmouth, East Devon. BBC Four HD and BBC News HD were two of a number of HD channels got removed from Freeview in March. Yet, I haven't had a reduction in my TV Licence!

It feels as if Freeview is tied up in masses of red tape imposed on it by License agreements and Operators meaning that they are not giving the best service available to us, the most important people, the viewers For example. I question why BBC 1 HD can't show local programmes. There must be technology allowing the material from regional news studios to be upscaled and shown on Freeview HD, understandably in SD quality?
ITV HD in my area shows local news from Central West, 200 miles away! (and not Meridian Southampton as your website states). Free-sat (and Sky I believe), now show ITV Westcountry HD on 103 in the SW, so why doesn't Freeview simply rebroadcast the same satellite signal that's available in order to offer benefit its Viewers?


Am I too tuned in to common sense here?
