TV viewers in Richmondshire have reported the return of their signal after a temporary mast was switched on at Bilsdale.
The transmitted was tested yesterday with the full switch on planned for 6am this morning.
Numerous Richmondshire residents have reported on social media that their signal has returned, although some report that the full list of channels have not yet returned.
Residents are being advised to retune their TV sets following the switch-on.
A spokesperson for Arqiva, which operates the transmitter, said: “A new, 80-metre temporary mast at Bilsdale has been switched on. It will restore TV services to approximately 95% of households across the region.
“Our engineers have worked around the clock over recent weeks to deliver this as the latest step in restoring services following the fire at Bilsdale in August.
“The switch-on means that viewers will now need to retune your TV and a guide on how to do this can be found here.
“As we have previously said, not everyone is covered by the switch on.”
The company said further details on help for those living in these so-called ‘not-spot” will be announced tomorrow.
Areas of upper Wensleydale and Swaledale are among the so-called ‘not-spots’.
