Freeview blames air pressure for TV disruption
Freeview has said that high air pressure is the cause of disruption being experienced by some of its users in England and Wales. The service provides access to digital TV channels through aerials, making it possible to watch programmes without a satellite or cable subscription. Freeview said it was unable to remedy the problem until weather conditions changed. "TV and radio signals can be affected by atmospheric conditions, including high air pressure, heavy rain or snow." Weather forecasts suggest the problem will continue into the evening, but a weak weather front is set to move in from the north on Thursday morning that should be more favourable for transmissions.
