Winter Hill (Bolton, England) transmitter
Wednesday 13 March 2019 5:01PM

Apologies to all, there was a fault in my code that was showing the final position for the 700MHz clearance, rather than the correct interim one of 50 59 54- 58 49 37 55 31. [repost]

Brian: I'm not sure as I have version 8.5 installed, and I'm in London where there have been fewer changes for 700MHz clearance.

So, which you pick DVB-T2 and UK in the tuner, don't pick your transmitter, stay on the genertic one. The 17 Jul 2018 chnages moved ArqA from the old C52 to C36.

I find it very strange that the French version of Death In Paradise has a different, but English, theme: "Sunday Shining" by Finley Quaye.

Thank you for contacting BBC Complaints.

I understand you feel we are not showing enough science programmes.

We do a great deal of research to inform what programmes we commission and where we place them in our schedules. When formulating the schedules, we do try to take into account audience expectations related to both the channel and the time of the broadcast, and of the variety of content we provide.

We know that not everyone will agree with our choices when scheduling programmes. These are subjective decisions and we accept that not everyone will think that we are correct on each occasion.

We're naturally very sorry when we hear that members of our audience do not like our programmes. We try very hard to produce a wide range of high quality programmes which we hope will appeal to our audiences.

The BBC is a publicly-funded broadcaster serving the whole of the United Kingdom providing programming to a hugely diverse audience with differing tastes and preferences. There will always be some programmes that do not appeal to some people and this is the nature of broadcasting whereby we are serving many different people with many different expectations.

We appreciate your feedback as it helps us to get a snapshot of our audiences' tastes and preferences and will help us shape decisions on future programming.

All complaints are sent to senior management and programme makers every morning and we have included your points in this overnight report. These reports are among the most widely read sources of feedback in the BBC and ensures that your complaint has been seen by the right people quickly.

Thank you again for taking the time to contact us.

Kind regards

James Kelly

Nation spending five times more than they think on subscriptions every year
Posted April 1, 2019 - Press Releases from Freeview

Study shows Brits think they spend an average of 29 on monthly subscriptions but we're actually paying 149

While half the nation know that National Price Hike Day is looming, more than three quarters (78%) have no idea how much their subscriptions will go up by

Freeview shares free and pay-as-you go alternatives, which could allow an individual saving of more than 1,500 per year

@Felim Doyle It's wasn't the "punitive carriage charges", it was the Sky bunged them money to have 4HD as one of their exclusive channels.

Sky do this by providing broadcasters with special "EPG discount fees".
