The NOW broadcaster swapping it's NOW 70s/80s/90s channels about is not unheard of and they've done it a few times recently. Since the 28th April, NOW 70s is on Freeview LCN76 and has moved to the COM7 multiplex on UHF Channel 55. You may/may not be able to receive it in your location (we'd need a full postcode to check).
As mentioned by Irn-Bru Kid, Now 80s is currently only on a Manchester (G-MAN) multiplex (as is NOW 90s).

NOW 70s is also on Channelbox Freeview LCN271 but it's a streamed channel over your broadband. You mentioned your provider TalkTalk, if you are using a YouView box, I'm not sure if that service is compatible.
