    Loss of ITV Reception in the UK and Spain - 4th June 2013

    Message from ITV:

    Thousands of TV viewers across the country have had their TV reception affected by a technical problem this evening. The technical fault occurred around 6.20pm and appears to have affected homes in every TV region apart from London and ITV Granada.

    The problem affecting the standard definition services which normally run on channel 103 on BSkyB. ITV services on high definition (HD) on Sky channel 178 appear to be working normally . FreeSat is affected too - Freeview services are working normally.

    Technicians at the transmission centres are working to restore normal services. You can also see ITV on Sky 973 - and on FreeSat on channel 977 for ITV SD and channel 177 for HD.

    The technical issue was something to do with Arqiva, who provide the uplink service to the satellites for ITV.
