Bilsdale Transmitter Mast Update

September 29, 2021

Following the Bilsdale transmitter mast fire on August 10, Julian has received regular updates from Arqiva on their attempts to repair the mast and restore service to those who have been affected in York and North Yorkshire.

In their latest update, Arqiva has said:

  • a dedicated call centre will open shortly, and a new online hub will be launched providing updated information and a place where people can register their postcodes and details to get support;
  • at the outset, people aged over 65 and those whom are either clinically vulnerable or vulnerable will be prioritised for support;
  • three local organisations will receive £50,000 each to help identify those vulnerable people affected by the loss of their TV service, and to support work on digital inclusion and social isolation;
  • the temporary mast is due to be switched on next Tuesday 5 October, if the weather permits work to continue at speed.
