700MHz Clearance – Your Digital TV Reception May be Disrupted
Last year, we wrote an article mentioning that the 700MHz clearance was being implemented at many transmitter groups around the UK. All of the major areas that we provide professional aerial services for such as the South West of the UK and areas across South Wales are expected to be significantly affected by the 700MHz clearance and it’s therefore important that you are ready and well informed for these changes as well as prepared for the reception interference that you may experience over the coming months.
The relevant transmitter groups that may affect our clients are the Mendip transmitter group that serves Bristol, parts of Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire as well as the Wenvoe transmitter group. This serves Cardiff, Newport and South East Wales.
Although the transmitter groups that affect these areas are due to be carried out in April – June of 2019, there has already been work carried out which has been reported to be causing interference and may affect the picture quality of your digital TV service, such as Freeview. In this article, we will cover what the 700MHz clearance is, why this clearance is occurring and what to do if you are facing reception issues.
If you are already experiencing issues, we understand that this can be highly frustrating and we are more than happy to help you if you find that you cannot resolve the issue yourself.
