Mendip Transmitter News

[ Edited ]

http://www.thisisgloucestershire.co.uk/news/Important-information-Freeview-customers-Gloucestershire...

 

THOUSANDS of households are being advised to re-tune their digital receivers in the Mendip region.

Arqiva - a company which provides much of the infrastructure behind television, radio, satellite and wireless communications in the UK - advises that all viewers of terrestrial TV from Mendip re-tune their digital receivers after 2 pm on Tuesday 11 January

 

Freeview viewers tuned to the Mendip transmitter near Bath, serving parts of Bristol, Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire, will need to re-tune their equipment anytime after 2pm on 11 January 2011 when an important change to local signals is carried out.

 

All Freeview, BT Vision and Top Up TV boxes, as well as digital TVs, should be re-tuned at any point after this.

 

Mendip serves an estimated 720,000 households and anyone watching Freeview direct from this transmitter will need to re-tune in order to regain access to certain channels including ITV4, Film4 and Yesterday.  Those watching just satellite or cable are not affected.

 

The change is being carried out to allow BT Vision customers the opportunity to subscribe to Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 2 in the Mendip transmission area and is timed to coincide with the new ITV1+1 channel being launched nationally, which also requires a re-tune. 

As the West region has already switched to digital, relay stations of Mendip will also benefit from the new ITV1+1 service provided they re-scan their receivers.

I guess you're aerial is pointing towards Belmont rather than Sandy Heath, which would explain why you're getting Yorkshire
