Timeline for the changes to Digital terrestrial television (DTT) channel numbers - 26th July 2017

    Due to Ofcom's decision to reallocate some frequencies currently used for DTT to mobile phone services, Freeview transmissions found in the 700MHz ultra high frequency (UHF) band will be moved. This process, known as the 700MHZ Clearance Programme, will roll out across the UK starting from Q3 2017, and will be completed in 2020.*

    How will this affect me?

    As a result, in order to view certain DTT channels/programmes, you will need to retune your TV and may have to replace your antenna well. For model specific information on the retuning procedure, please see the following article:
