UK Free TV birthday fixes

To celebrate the 19th birthday of UK Free TV I have fixed all the problems with the site I can find. This means restored links to Twitter, Digital UK, TV Investigations and so forth.

Apologies once again for these problems, which were mainly caused by moving to PHP8.   Whilst PHP8 is considerably faster (it’s compiled, rather than interpreted) and uses computing resources better, it does have challenges when moving code that is, in parts, almost 20 years old. 


Restored Digital UK engineering information.

Restored BBC engineering information.


The site has modern security headers.

So ukfreetv now  gets and A grade for headers

As well as one for SSL


UK Free TV comments Twitter feed relinked


The @Briantist feed has the Read this list in it again.


DAB mapping working again.

Both on the radio coverage prediction page


Radio stations listed again.


Your comments/Can you help no longer shows codes but page titles.

Using the Menu top LHS of the site page -
Was that using the Mast Locations link? All UK digital TV transmitters | free and easy that gives a list.
The Transmitters details link seems to go to Full service Freeview transmitters | free and easy now giving a map of the Full Service Freeview transmitters it seems.

On Radio, the DAB transmitters link All UK DAB radio transmitters | free and easy gives a list, the DAB mast list goes to the same page.

Hello there. Odd problem. The set top box struggles with recording BBC1 and drops out with the HDD code on the display. Cannot fathom why. Any suggestions?

Steven Hollands:

Are you having any problems with other BBC SD channels? (eg. BBC2, BBC News?)
