Woodbridge: ‘Hundreds’ of homes affected by BBC interference
BOSSES at the BBC last night said they were investigating after hundreds of homes were understood to be experiencing poor television reception.
Since the middle of November properties supplied by the TV transmitter on top of the water tower in Bredfield Road, Woodbridge, have had interference on BBC2.
Allan Cole, of Melton Road, Woodbridge, is one of those affected.
“There is constant ‘herring bone’ style interference,” he said. “You have got to be fairly dedicated to be able to watch it.
“At first I thought it was an issue with my own TV aerial. However, I made enquiries and am led to believe the problem is affecting approximately 600 homes in the Woodbridge area who receive their TV via an analogue signal.

“The transmitter information states the transmitter is working OK, which I do not dispute, but, having spoken with an aerial installer, he suspects that a home near the transmitter has recently installed a home hub or TV transmitter which is affecting the BBC transmissions.”
He said that despite registering the problem with the BBC the issue has not yet been resolved.

Terry Foubister, of Aerial Aid in Melton, said he had been inundated with calls from frustrated customers reporting problems.
“I’ve had around 50 calls,” he said. “However, I would think at least 800 homes are affected.”
Last night a spokesman for the BBC said the corporation was looking into the matter.
