For the last six years, I have answered many thousands of personal emails that you have sent to UK Free TV.

Sadly, I am unable to offer this personal service at the moment.

Until I can restore this service, please can you leave any questions you have on an appropriate page, where they will be answered as soon as possible, or below, if you can't figure out where to ask.

I look forward to your questions!

jb38 - Indeed! Though the point here is to appear to be in the UK.

I doubt if any illegality is involved. IIRC you don't even sign anything to access BBC websites, so they clearly impose no civil obligations either.

Stephen P: Yes quite so, and I do realise that you were only indicating to Kari Rives a possible way to obtain UK TV programmes in the US without being blocked when an IP address from outwith the UK was detected, what I mentioned was just an example of the same thing being done but in reverse.

I personally dont really know anything about the legalities of using a proxy, but it has to be admitted that by using one for the purposes referred to involves an element of deception, but whether its deception in a legal sense is another matter, although I suppose the legal aspect might only come into it if the proxy was being used for criminal purposes.

I suspect the BBC gives not a fig, so long as it is just for personal use. But because they don't have overseas rights to a lot of their content have to make some impression of limiting it.

According to Digital UK the Pennsylvania (Exeter) transmitter provides 17 TV channels (2 of these are for children and 2 are news related). This is a bit of shock after having got used to 50 plus freeview channels elsewhere. Does anyone know if this situation is likely to change?

Martin H: The Stockland Hill transmitter has all of the Freeview channels and covers some of Exeter - did the postcode checker indicate that you'd be able to receive a signal from there?

KMJ Derby. Thank you for your reply. I regret to say that I am not a technician and have no means of measuring signal strength or quality.
The problem only seems to happen with high atmos. pressure and there has been some improvement since switchover.

Viv Gunton: TVs and set-top boxes usually provide a measure of signal strength and is usually found somewhere in the menu system.

Michael: Digital uk (postcode checker) shows variable reception from Stockland Hill but limited to up to 17 channels.
