Why do I sometimes miss the start or end of programmes when recorded on my MyFreeview?

Broadcasts can sometimes run over or behind schedule by a few minutes. MyFreeview recorders automatically extend the start and end time of recordings, adding a buffer if possible, to compensate for this. But if multiple recordings back to back are scheduled it may not always be possible to extend the time and the recorder may start or finish the recording at the scheduled time, which may be a little earlier than the actual end time of the live programme.

Broadcasters can update at any time the start or end time of any live programming to compensate for differences to the schedule; however this may not always be feasible given the dynamic nature of live programming such as the News.

If you’d like to provide feedback about inaccurate start or end times of programmes, please contact the broadcaster directly.
