    I have a Busch 19" tv with built in freeview, it has worked perfectly until we have moved to a new flat and it now wont find any channels. I have changed the arial cable a couple of times and have tried adding an external freeview box to see if it needed a signal boost but nothing seems to work. I dont have a great technical mind therefore the answer could be really simple and ive just not realised, but im really stuck with what to do?

    Freeview is the marketing name for digital terrestrial broadcasting in the UK, Australia and New Zealand.

    My guess is that Bobby has moved into an area where there is no digital signal.

    Let's see now.

    For the UK, people can check their availability by entering their postcode at the Freeview website -here-.

    In Australia, people having trouble with digital TV reception should call the government information line on 1800 20 10 13 (8 am - 10 pm AEST, 7 days a week). People can check their expected coverage by entering their address -here-.

    New Zealand has downloadable coverage maps based on computer modelling -here-.

    In all three countries, it seems the same channels are also available using free satellite broadcasting (Freesat in Britain, VAST in Australia, Freeview Satellite in NZ) for people who live outside the reception areas and subsidies may apply for a receiver.
