Freeview blames weather for TV problems
Digital TV platform Freeview says that people around the UK are experiencing reception problems because of high pressure weather conditions. Freeview says those affected should not re-tune their TV sets or boxes. "At the moment, it looks as though these conditions may continue throughout the week," Freeview said in a statement. It's not the first time weather conditions have caused problems for Freeview - in November 2017 some viewers complained that they missed the final of The Great British Bake Off as a result. Inversions may still form overnight for the next couple of nights, particularly in the south of the UK, but they are not expected to be as sharp or close to the ground and so should have less of an effect on Freeview signals.
