Freeview viewers across parts of the UK could see some disruption to their TV reception between Wednesday the 24th and Monday the 29th May. This is due to high pressure which could disrupt the TV signals which Freeview uses.

High pressure is a weather pattern that occurs when there is a large area of high atmospheric pressure at the surface of the Earth. This can cause the air to sink, which can in turn lead to clear skies and calm winds. However, it can also cause problems for TV reception, as the sinking air can refract the TV signals, making them weaker and more difficult to receive.

The areas of the UK that are most likely to be affected by the high pressure are those in the south and east of the country. This is because the high pressure system is expected to be strongest in these areas.

If you are experiencing problems with your TV reception, there are a few things you can do. First, you should check that your aerial is properly connected and in good condition. You can also try moving your aerial to a different location, or using a different aerial booster. If you are still having problems, you can contact Freeview for further help.

Freeview has advised viewers not to retune their TVs during this time, as this could make the problem worse. Reception will be restored once the high pressure passes.

Alternatively, you can watch Freeview via the Freeview mobile app, which is available to download for free from the App Store or Google Play. You can also watch Freeview via a web browser on the Freeview website.
