Hi @Baldy76 

Are the pixelated picxtures for the live Celtic and Rangers games on the same channel that you watched Soccer Labs Soccer Saturday on?  Which channel is the pixelation on? Also is it an SD, HD or UHD channel, and are any other channels affected? Have you checked your HDMI connection and maybe tried a different cable?

Is there anything showing using the online  /check-services/i  function? You can also a run a test on your equipment from there. 

If nothing is showing  you could also try the automated Service Status number  0800 561 0061.  This often gives details of more local issues down to postcode level.

Generally pixelated pictures on live TV are the sign of a signal fault, so if you've rebooted and it persists then probably need either an engineer visit or a replacement box, depending on what VM's remote diagnostics turn up.
