Catherine Cramb:

The BBC are reporting a fault.
Whilst the BBC have reported fault details on their individual transmitter page, they have NOT (yet?) added it to a page which is an engineering list of Freeview faults which is where the updates to this site come from.

From 5:29:19pm on 26th Nov 2021 BBC A / BBCB HD Off the air due to a fault

No doubt due to a power outage as a result of the abysmal weather. I can't find any further updates at this time.

Statement from BBC Engineering -

Interruptions to television and radio services due to Storm Arwen

High winds and rain are causing problems with electricity supplies to several transmitters across the UK. Regional electricity suppliers are working hard to restore services. You can check the status of your local transmitter using our transmitter checker tool.

While you're waiting you could try BBC iPlayer or BBC Sounds to carry on watching or listening to your favourite programmes. They are both available on Smart televisions and many other internet connected devices.

Keep up with the latest weather in your area.
