I was fed up with the Radio Times and TV Guide sites for Freeview programme listings and did a Google search and found 'LocateTV', the Freeview Guide:

http://www.locatetv.com/uk/listings/freeview


In my opinion it gives all the Freeview channels, easily laid out and easy to use and it even the Freeview channel numbers. Thought I would recommend this site to others!
It looks useful and I've used it a few times in the last few days.

Why the wacky channel order? 4, 28, 6, 1,2,3 .... (C4, E4, ITV2 ...)

Why does it show non-Freeview channels like ESPN and skysports? Did they misunderstand what Freeview is, or get sponsored to remind us other stuff exists?

I'd also prefer it without the continuous sales 'channels' too. Maybe there's a personalise option.

I did a little google search and like the look of this one.

http://www.zingzing.co.uk/tvguide/

It may take a little bit of playing around to get things where you want them but it seems very similar to Digiguide.

Edit: Sorry googleking I didn't notice you had already posted a link to this site.
I use this one too. This site is really good I can delete the channels I don't watch and just have a guide for the ones I do

I haven't loked through above yet but use tvguide and radiotimes.
I find the search on radio times better.

Wanted to ask though - is anone else frustrated that EPG does not state whether a programme is a repeat. Why can't they include the (R) that you see in paper guides ?

Can anyone recommend a weekly printed Tv guide that gives the widest coverage of freeview and freesat by any chance?

TV & Satellite Week seems fairly decent...

The Total TV Guide magazine mostly has listings for Freeview in fact it hardly lists other channels
