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.

 

Thought I had better post a "It's not just me" message when I confirmed it was widespread.

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





Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.
