Freeview in the Village

Retune After 30th June

If you receive your TV signal via the Freeview service you will need to retune your TV at the end of the month. Some channels will move and some may disappear for a short time, or completely.

The Technical Stuff

On 30th of June the COM7 multiplex channel on Freeview will be switched off. The frequency will now be used for 5G mobile services.

As a result you will need to retune your TV or set top box. This is usually done in the device’s set-up menu under settings / retune or auto-tuning something similar.
