What postcode area are you located in?

Do you receive your channels through an indoor aerial, or an outdoor aerial?

Expert:  Pete replied 7 days ago.

Based on the information you have provided so far, some channel signals may be weak in your area.

You can try adding a signal amplifier like this one to your aerial:
