This means these changes from now show up correctly.


Many thanks to Digital UK to provide their numerous PDF printouts of Freeview channel changes.  So we can now see all of the upcoming changes.   As the program was suspended due to CV-19, I've put all the events for the last day of the year.  I'll change these when Digital UK provide some new actual dates.  

See for an up-to-date list of the changes around 5G provision.

I am still having intermittent problems with reception from Belmont - probably due to my location on the edge of a quite large wood which is now in full leaf, of course.

I have found that online reception is far more reliable so 'live' TV has become quite a rarity in this house.

I suspect online will overtake terrestrial and satellite reception in the near future (if it hasn't already).

If your predicted reception is poor in your location, perhaps you should consider Freesat.
