Platform operator Freeview is advising viewers to retune their receiver from lunchtime to ensure they’re receiving the most up to date line-up. Many receivers will be capable of doing the job on their own.
The changes have become necessary as a result of the increasing number of channels DTT; many in the HD/MPEG-4 format.
Guy North, Managing Director, Freeview said “We’re preparing the nation for a bigger and better Freeview platform. We’ve welcomed many new additions to the channel line up in the past couple of years and today’s update ensures we have enough space for even more new and exciting launches. Most viewers should find retuning straightforward, but if any viewer requires assistance, our advice line will be happy to guide them through the process on 03456 505050.”
