Changes to Freeview television signals in parts of the UK.
Some channels on Freeview will be moving to new airwaves to allow for the future development of new mobile broadband services, following a decision by Government.
Digital UK is working with Freeview and co-ordinating the technical planning of the updates needed at transmitters. This programme of changes will take place in stages between now and 2020.
Engineering work will be carried out in your area in September this year. Following this, any tenants who receive Freeview from one of the transmitter groups listed may need to retune their TV equipment on the date noted if they find they are missing channels. Those using other services based on terrestrial TV, such as YouView, BT TV or TalkTalk, will also be affected. For the majority of viewers, a retune should restore TV services to normal.
If you would like to check your postcode, you can enter these into the retune checker at www.freeview.co.uk/tvchanges For example, while no change is listed now, your own postcode shows a two changes are scheduled.
