Following technical problems at our service provider Arqiva, Dsat viewers had some transmission problems. Normal service is now restored
Thousands of people who had their ITV signal affected by a technical problem have had services restored.
Outage was experienced after 6.00pm but services have now been fixed by engineers.
@ibiza_boyle From what we know there was an issue with the broadcast coming from a few ITv channels, it should be working now though :) ED
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.
We're working with ITV to urgently fix an issue with their channels on our platform and will update as soon as possible.
Thousands of people across the country have had their ITV signal affected by a technical problem tonight. Problems began at around 6.20pm.
We are currently investigating the loss of signal in some areas and we hope to have full service restored soon. We'll keep you updated here
The fault appears to have affected services in many regions, with the exception of ITV London and ITV Granada. If you are having problems with your signal, you can watch ITV online here.
While we try and get out ITV signal back up and running, it seems the HD channels are not affected - thanks for all who tweeted that!
