I live in AL1 1UB. Today I tried to tune into Ch62 for True Christmas and it is now ITV4+1. Yesterday it was fine. I have just retuned twice and Ch62 is still ITV4+1 and True Christmas is nowhere to be found

charles provine: There have been no recent changes reported for True Movies on Freeview. Have you checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV? Please provide a full postcode so that we can see which transmitters you're receiving, where you are in relation to them and your predicted coverage etc. Do not attempt to retune.

D Copping:

You would do better to aim your comments at True Movies themselves as this website is entirely independent of all broadcasters.
