Maybe Nationwide.

 

Severe pixelisation, all channels, so suspect a link problem.

 

Confirmed it is like this multiple properties ex Sugarloaf.

 

FreeView show NO problems on their Status page!

I transferred to Christchurch just as they de-manned Sugarloaf in January 1983! I was a trainee Radio Technician with the BCNZ then.

It was "fixed" just after 1820hrs.

I'm mildly amazed by the number of people who watch broadcast tv still..
