I just got back from my lanlords because his UHF wasn't working at all.

About 5 minutes ago TV1/2 services were working after a rescan, but MediaWorks 3/4 still wasn't. I rang around town to find others with issues today too. Anyone know what's up down here?

Fortunately I don't care about HD so I'm not effected on satellite, but it seems there are still teething problems down here. Or are we getting another channel added soon?

Has anyone tried to use Igloo off Forest Hill?  My Mum bought an igloo box, setup the 30 day free trial of their additional channels and it wouldn't work.  We rang igloo support for them to tell us to have our antenna looked at??!?  If we were receiving all the Freeview channels but not the igloo one's surely its not a fault with our antenna?

Has anyone else in Southland/Invercargill had similar issues?
