There are some channels on UK satellite TV whose reception can be affected by outside interference.
Some of the UK TV channels on the UK TV satellites operate on frequencies that are used by other electronic devices.
This can result in the loss of pixilation of these channels.

These channels include True Movies and Chart Show TV. In fact these channels actually run “infomercials” about these problems.

It is usually caused by a “wireless” DECT phone, you know the ones with a base unit and a “walkabout” phone. Well it is the frequency that the base unit uses to talk to the handset that causes interference.

The solution is simple. Move the base unit further away from the satellite receiver and cabling.
I have also noticed this happening on some wireless internet routers also.
