My friend just claimed there is porn on Freeview, late at night!

This has astounded me.

Ive had Freeview for many, many years and Im very familiar with all the channels (I regularly re-scan). Ive never seen even a hint of porn anywhere, apart from the encrypted channels which (presumably) you have to pay for.

If I thought Id been free missing porn all these years, I would be absolutely sickened.

Totally confused!

TVX/Red Hot is a payware porn channel. I don't know if the free Babestation etc channels count as porn or not.

The easiest way is to rescan your Freeview box and go through all the channels after 12am.

I don't know if they get their fish bits out on the dial-a-ho channels. I think its a bit like page 3 but you have to put up with them talking.

Not really much point worrying you may have missed free tv porn if you have internets.

Ofcom doesn't allow them to get the grumble and grunt out. They aren't even allowed to touch down there and they wear 2 pairs of knickers, they can only get their boobs out.
Plus no swearing on TV.

Babestation (and Television X) are encrypted though, right?

Ive switched to several channels like Babestation many times, at all hours of the night, and its always just a blank screen, nothing showing at all (presumably encrypted).

I don't know if they get their fish bits out on the dial-a-ho channels.
What are these dial-a-ho channels? What are the channels called? Do you mean the late night quiz shows like Make Your Play? Or are you telling me Freeview has sexy phone chat channels, like you get on satellite?

How can I be missing all this? Im starting to think theres been something wrong with my PVR ever since I bought it.

I wonder if adult channels use some special kind of signal that not all boxes can receive?

There's no porn as such but there are these slapper channels in the 90's where they 'speak' to men on the phone while sitting on a sofa. I wonder how many of those conversations are genuine?

Not True...
In the way of research (I swear) I have seen naked except for high heels and a pink scarf(?) strategically pulled, placed, moved to hide from view - not even that when not in view.

Obviously, online porn has many major advantages:
Choice and wealth of material
High picture quality
Hardcore content

But TV porn has a few minor advantages:
Its British material (which is relatively rare online)
Its more convenient to watch in the living room.
Its much easier to download (and no download time).
Easier to play back (with a remote control)
Its not just porn because TV porn is often entertaining in other ways or has an educational element (a great example of this is Naked News, which I love).

Can you make pornography come on my telly please?

Boob touching is about as far as porn on freeview goes.

Search for Redtube.

Hi

Or are you telling me Freeview has sexy phone chat channels, like you get on satellite?
Yes. They're completely free-to-air with no broadcaster child-protection mechanisms in place; there's speculation that they'll be eliminated from Freeview next year on account of being depraving of their child viewers (i.e. obscene).

The only reasons you'd not be getting them are:

a) You haven't been fully retuning your Freeview equipment; manually delete all stations before retuning or use the option which does that (i.e. Factory Reset / First Time Setup).

b) You're not receiving the full Freeview channel list because you live in an area with "conflicting TV masts". The solution being Manual Tuning.

c) You're not receiving the full Freeview channel list because you live in an area requiring it, but haven't changed your aerial to a different Group/Gain rating. A tell-tale for this is if you don't receive (P38) Quest and (P15) Film4.

Regards

Alas, I cannot! But it is a salient reminder of why not to sit too close to the screen.

Is someone taking the proverbial on this thread.

The best quote I can think of was from the Dummy,who was the star of Ark Royal ship TV, shown on the BBC.

"Hello you Winkers"

No wonder people call them slapper channels! I wonder how old the men are who these girls are talking to?

First of all it definitely isnt C as I have lived in several different houses and towns since I first started watching Freeview.

As for the other two, I looked at the list of channels, and I do get all those channels, its just that a lot of them (mostly the higher number ones) show up as a black screen on my TV, so I have always assumed theyre encrypted.

Something is definitely wrong with my box. Just as well Im in the process of setting up a new PVR as we speak, so maybe this one will get the channels the old one didnt get?

Obviously as you use Digital Spy you have the internet. Rather than get worked up about very little on Freeview (and any other British platform for that matter) just use the web... there's plenty of what you want there!
