On 20 August 2020 (what would have been Star Trek creator Gene Roddenbury’s 99th birthday) the final changes to Freeview to clear the way country-wide for 5G mobile broadband.

For a final time, Freeview viewers in the UK will have to return to keep watching all their Freeview channels.   

In the lake district, Crosthwaite, Grasmere, Hawkshead, Kendal, Millthrop and Windermere will need to retune and on the self-governing Crown dependency those watching Freeview from the Douglas and Glenmaye will also have to retune their sets.
