Always problems the same as you mention, here (for myself)in Pensby/Thingwall area. It's OK on the BBC channels, but anything else is as you describe.
Having said that I do have water coming in through the arial. Comes out under the tele when the rain is really bad. Then I put the end of the arial into a mug and drain it. Fortunately the controls are on the opposite side on the tele.

Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.
