Freeview Viewers Need to Retune

If you are one of the millions of viewers that watch TV with Freeview, you will need to retune your settop box to be able to continue to receive all available channels. The retune is part of the upgrade of the digital terrestrial TV platform to make Five more available and to prepare for Freeview HD launch.

The new upgrade and retune will allow 500,000 homes to receive Five for the first time. Many viewers on the service will also get a new channel called the Quest channel after the retune.

The downside to the retune is that about 460,000 homes are expected to lose access to ITV3 and ITV4 after the retune. Freeview also says that about 20,000 older receivers won’t work at all after the retune.
