Annoyed: Your TV licence does not provide any funding for commercial stations such as True Movies. The only broadcasters it does fund are the BBC and S4C.

Sony renamed their channels last year and had many of them moved to Local multiplexes. True Movies is now called Sony Movies Classic at LCN50 in your programme guide. Unless you get a Local station at LCN 7 or 8 you probably won't get those Sony Channels.
See Channel listings | Freeview for which channels are on which multiplex.
If you need more help and you know which transmitter you get Freeview from, post back, otherwise a full postcode is needed to see what the Freeview Detailed Coverage checker predicts for reception at your location.
