Mogsey O'Boyle: Check that Series 4 has an HD tuner. If it does, check that they are tuned to the same transmitter.

After the mandatory retune today 21.3.18 where is PBS America now available on Freeview? Channel 94 USED to be PBS America. Thank you. John.

John: PBS America has not changed Logical Channel Number. If you have already carried out a full retune please provide a full postcode so that we can see which transmitter you're using and offer further advice on how to restore PBS America and any other missing channels.

Hello and thank you for that. The postcode is EN2 0LS and yes a full retune was carried out today. Channels 86 - 99 inclusive, are no longer available on my Freeview. John.

John: The most likely explanation is that you're using a Group A aerial pointed at Crystal Palace which isn't designed to pick up the higher frequencies that the COM7 & COM8 multiplexes are now using. If you don't have satellite or cable, you may be eligible for a free replacement wideband aerial which can be arranged by contacting the Freeview Advice Line (see link below).

John: I have lost channels 86-99 too; after todays retune. Channel 40 and some other channels have also disappeared. I am using a Wideband Aerial. I pick up Greater London Services, not Anglia, even though I am based in Southend on sea. Anglia signal is poor in my location, hence using London.
