28 September – high pressure weather system affecting TV signals

Posted September 28, 2016 - Service Updates Archive

Some viewers may be experiencing interference with TV channels on Freeview due to a high pressure weather system over England and Wales.

The areas affected include West Country, Midlands and south coast of England and South Wales.

Freeview TV signals may be affected by atmospheric conditions, including high air pressure, this may result in temporary pixelation or viewers receiving signals from outside of their area even other countries.

Unfortunately there is no solution to this natural interference and broadcasters cannot prevent it.  Reception will return to normal once the weather changes.
