All free TV channels in the UK

David Whitney: If your TV has a DVB-T tuner then it will be capable of receiving Freeview, which it almost certainly will have if it was manufactured in the last 10 years. If you post the full model number we can check.

keith Ralph: Freeview and Freesat are both very much still going strong. As you have a dish you could get another Freesat box (Humax no longer make them and the only new models on sale are the Freesat 4K boxes made by Arris. If you have an aerial you can plug it in to your TV and assuming it isn't too old to have a DVB-T tuner, carr out a scan for channels.

B Bentley: Nobody blanked your screen out deliberately - why would they when it would cause millions of complaints? It sounds like there was either something interfering with the incoming signal, early signs of a fault, or perhaps you inadvertently pressed something on the remote which blanked out the picture?

Alan Small: I answered this on another post recently. The only remaining free to view channels I'm aware of are London Live and the other local TV channels (I think there are only one or two others available on satellite) and 3 out of the 4 STV HD regions (STV West HD is free to air). There may be a couple of +1 channels but there isn't much you'd miss out on by using a Sky box without a viewing card, other than having the correct BBC/ITV/Channel 4 regions.

John Thompson: 5Select is carried on the PSB3 multiplex alongside BBC One HD, which is available from every transmitter, although it is only available on TVs with a DVB-T2 tuner which is required to receive HD channels (many have either the Freeview HD or Freeview Play logo).

Mike: It's originally down to having to accommodate S4C and making it available from every Welsh transmitter. S4C takes E4's space on the PSB2 multiplex, so E4 takes a slot on the COM4 multiplex in Wales only, leaving a slot which is available on COM4 in England/Scotland/Northern Ireland, which for the last few years has been occupied by Great Movies Action (formerly Sony Movies Action) with the broadcaster benefiting from lower costs as they are reaching a few million fewer viewers.

Daka66: You might be able to get a weak signal from Oxford, but there isn't a local mux (GREAT! Movies Classic is broadcast alongside local TV stations) transmitter which is intended to cover your location.
