Yates: Ask the broadcaster (Challenge is owned by Sky). Nobody on this independent technical help website can answer that.

Hi, I love to watch the challenge channel on my freesat box but for ages now, the speech is not synced with the picture. Especially on the chase bully and pointless .
Could you please fix this, as it's almost unwatchable as it is. Thank you in anticipation.
Dennis.

Dennis Simpson : This is an independent technical help site, which has no links with any broadcaster or transmitter company. Are you getting sound and pictures out of sync on any other channels? If it's only happening on Challenge you could try reporting the problem to Sky (who own Challenge) via their own website.
