I don't want ITV Granada

Been a BT TV customer for about two and a half years and I'm now fed up of having the wrong ITV region. Ever since we got the YouView box we've been stuck with ITV Granada (Manchester & Liverpool) despite living in Barnsley, Yorkshire and having a Sheffield post code. I've retuned the channels countless times and it makes no difference.

All the FreeView TVs in the house get ITV Yorkshire from Emley Moor.

Why can't BT TV provide me with ITV Yorkshire?

Am I alone in this issue?

@jptykes

 

Do you receive on your Youview box  ITV Granada on each of  channel 3 (ITV)  channel 33 (ITV +1) and channel 103 (ITV HD) ? 

 

According to this

 

https://ukfree.tv/transmitters/tv/Emley_Moor

 

Emley Moor does transmit ITV HD Granada rather than ITV HD Yorkshire .

 

There also seems to be a complex Freeview coverage in the Emley Moor region

Re: I don't want ITV Granada

Yes all channels show Granada.

The site you link makes regular mention of ITV Yorkshire as the ITV region (PSPB2). The mast is located in Yorkshire. The signal map on the linked page shows it broadcasting to Yorkshire and barely touching the Lancashire (Granada region) side of the Pennines.

The site you link mentions Calendar (Yorkshire) as being the local news for ITV, yet I'm stuck with stories from the wrong side of the Pennines.

All our BBC programming is for Yorkshire.

@jptykes Do you havw any channels in the 800 range in the EPG (guide) n on your Youview box ?

Also do you get offered any choice  of region when you tune your Youview box ?

My highest TV channel number is 542, after that it's radio stations.

No choice of region when tuning or retuning.

BT have no control on the channels below 300 - these are all Freeview channels and are from your local transmitter.

 

You would get the same channels if you purchased your own Freeview box.

 

You should get Yorkshire on channel 3 - but I think the others will still be Granada as that is what ITV provide.

It sounds as if your box has been tuned to the wrong region, try retuning it again and make sure you select the correct region at the end of the process

Re: I don't want ITV Granada

@ozsat I've lived here for over 40 years. I've had analogue TV, FreeView, Sky and BT and it's only while with BT that I've had Granada. I don't live in a Granada region. As I said in the OP, the Freeview sets in the house get Yorkshire not Granada.

@V_Meldrew I don't get a choice. I've tried retuning and it just gives me Granada. Just as it did on initial set up.

Re: I don't want ITV Granada

And your Freeview box doesn't offer Granada at the top end - around 800+ ?

I live in an area where we can receive TV transmissions from two seperate regions and I presume that this is why, when I retune my box, it asks me to confirm my primary region, I assumed that yours was doing likewise.

 

Can you get Yorkshire TV if you plug the aerial straight into a TV? if not then maybe your aerial is pointing in the wrong direction?
