THOSE still without TV signal will now be able to purchase a TV streaming device using a £50 voucher through Arqiva’s new scheme.

The scheme is the latest step in Project Restore, which is designed to help those affected by the fire at Bilsdale TV mast on August 10.

Houses that are found within a “not-spot” and are still without signal now the temporary 80-metre transmitter is live, can claim a £50 voucher to purchase a TV streaming device.

The voucher can only be redeemed at Currys but will allow residents to choose from a range of streaming devices which work by using the internet to give viewers access to on-demand services such as BBC iPlayer and Channel 4.

Streaming services that residents can use range from the Roku Express HD Streaming Media Player or the Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite.

Arqiva say that letters detailing how residents can claim the voucher are being sent out this week.

Residents will need to enter their name and addresses and a unique voucher code and any funds left over from the voucher after the purchase can still be used by households.

According to Arqiva available streaming devices can be found at and those wanting assistance can have a live chat with a Currys expert via ShopLive.

As the streaming service uses WiFi, some households will still be without TV, Arqiva have addressed this by explaining that these households can call 0800 121 4828.

Shuja Khan, Chief Commercial Officer at Arqiva, said: “Although the temporary mast at Bilsdale has restored TV services to the large majority of households in the region, we know there are still those either with no or partial signal.

“We will be providing a voucher for those without a signal so they can buy a TV streaming device via Currys.”
