Upcoming Freeview transmitter changes 2017 to 2020

Listed below are all the UK’s main Freeview transmitters. For each one is a list of the channel frequency numbers, and below them the latest expected date of changes, and the various changes:
  • The number represents the multiplex (1 is PSB1, 4 is COM4 and so forth).
  • A filled-in square ∎ is where no change is planned;
  • A box with a tick ☑ is the new multiplex allocation, but I’m not sure which one;
  • A arrow pointing away from the number (like ←2) is a multiplex moving away from the frequency, and the arrow pointing at the number (→7 for example) is the new frequency allocation.
  • “tbc” mean I don’t have the final new allocations.
  • Where the changes will change the aerial group, this is shown with a “before” and “after”. If the before group was “wideband” this data isn’t shown as it is unhelpful.
  • The actual dates of the com7 and com8 changes to (single frequency networks) on C55 and C56 are unknown.

melvin platts: There won't be any changes at the transmitter to increase siganl, as all transmitter have been operating at their full output power since digital switchover completed several years ago now. Olivers Mount and Bilsdale transmitters are both predicted to give a good signal at your location. Have you checked which UHF channels your received is tuned to, as it may be inadvertently tuned to the wrong transmitter rather than the one your aerial is pointed to? Olivers Mount (approximate North from your postcode) uses 49/53/54/57/58/60 whereas Bilsdale (approximately West from yuor postcode) uses 23/26/29/31/37/40/43/46 (although 30 and 31 aren't predicted to give a good signal at your location).

mrs Cox - Yes, you will, your TV will automatically retune , and even if it doesn't, its a simple thing to do. And since my parents also live in Poole (where I was brought up), I can safely say you will get all the channels you have now, plus possibly more.

The only problem might be if you need a new aerial, but cross that bridge when you come to it.
