So after the much vaunted London digital switchover am left with a pathetic and erratic selection of channels. One day 30 odd and occaisionally more which drop out. No equipment or aerial fault, problem seems to be that the Woolwich transmitter is being left in the dark ages and not upgraded, so 9,000 odd people are being frozen out of a decent freeview service. Left with a difficult choice as only options are Freesat which I believe is Sky related and not keen on anything from them, or a huge extension pole for aerial to reach signal from crystal palace. Reason is that broadcasters reckon their adverts are reaching enough people and cant be bothered with the other 20% ish. Thanks a bunch. Also why no email or phone contact details from Freesat? Any other transmitters to try? Any financial help for wasted freeview TV, initial freesat costs or aerial extension?
