published on UK Free TV

By a modification to one of the parameters used for broadcast (the "forward error correction") the capacity of the multiplexes increases by 12.5%, which is sufficient for an additional standard-definition channel to be broadcast - see Freeview modes - a simplified explanation.

The changes are taking place on a rolling programme. This week:

Tuesday 8th November

Emley Moor ArqB, Lancaster ArqB, Mendip ArqB, Rosneath ArqB

Wednesday 9th November

Durris ArqB, Eitshal ArqB, Idle ArqB

Thursday 10th November

Durris ArqA, Eitshal ArqA, Keighley ArqB, Plympton SDN+ArqA+ArqB, Torosay ArqB

For the full list of known changes in this project see Diary of changes to capacity of ArqB, ArqA and SDN multiplexes .
