Freeview TV guide update

Channel update day - 2 August 2017

The Freeview TV guide was updated on the 2 August 2017 to create capacity for new channels and strengthen consumer protection measures. As part of this, some channels moved to new numbers. Viewers are advised to retune to ensure they have the latest channel line-up in their area if they haven't already done so. A list of the changes is below.

Note: To minimise any potential disruption for viewers, some channel providers chose to align their planned changes with Channel Update Day.
