We have freeview lite. Why can't we get itv4 which has live football, when we get itv+1, C4+1,E4+1. All they do is show stuff twice and we miss out completely on ITV4, film 4. There should be no +1 channels until the full ITV/ C4 network is available on freeview lite

Chris: The Digital UK postcode checker predicts that you can receive a full Freeview service from Lancaster, using a group A aerial mounted for vertical polarisation and pointing South at 185 degrees. Most viewers would agree with you regarding "+1" channels, the broadcasters however see a second transmission of their main channel as being more attractive to advertisers.

Chris: See also Freeview retune - poor public service transmitters deal | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice . The "+1" channels for ITV1 and Channel 4+1 have to be on Mutliplex 2/D3+4 because they have regional versions, and multiplexes SDN, ArqA and ArqB are the same UK-wide (with the exception of SDN in Wales).

Thanks Briantist and kmj. We have downsized to an apartment in a block of flats so have to rely on internal ariel. Have emailed ITV but don't expect any meaningful response. I can't understand why ITV don't give us ITV4 given their investment in sport. 8% of potential viewers sounds like a group worth catering for. However, logic doesn't seem to count in in Freeview lite.

Chris: To cover the extra 8%, another 1000+ transmitters would need to be provided for, which would be 13 times the number provided already. It's just not economic, outside the cross-subsidy provided by the BBC and ITV/C4.

Mike Dimmick: LA97LB above is not my aerial, but one nearby and I was just checking the direction before I advised them. The present aerial(I think a Televes DAT45(W/Band type) has been erected pointing correctly at Lancaster(188 Deg./Vertical). Chimney mounted on 1 metre pole and seems to have a masthead amp.
BUT, IT HAS BEEN SET-UP IN THE HOREZONTAL PLANE ?
They are new to the area and have hardly moved in, so I have now left a note advising them to rotate through 90Deg. when they have time.
