The Freeview digital TV platform is currently not working in various parts of the UK according to multiple reports online.
@freeviewTV don’t you have anything to say about last night’s widespread loss of service?

A Freeview spokesman told What Hi-Fi?: “TV and radio signals can be affected by atmospheric conditions, including high air pressure (which brings fine weather), heavy rain or snow. We’re aware that high air pressure is currently affecting TV and radio signals for some viewers. We’re unable to prevent or remedy this, normal services will return once the weather changes.”
While some people have lost all signal, others report an intermittent service, with channels from the BBC and Sky said to be affected by the outage.
