Anne Walker: True Christmas is on Freeview channel 74 (not 24) in areas where there is a local TV station broadcast. This is due to the broadcaster taking spare capacity on the multiplex which carries local TV channels and helps to fund the broadcast costs for local TV operators.

david: As above, you will only receive True Christmas on Freeview if you can receive a local TV station on either channel 7 or 8. It's also available on Sky and Freesat.

Gemma: True Christmas (74) along with True Crime (60) Made in etc (8) is transmitted by stations equipped with a *Local* multiplex transmitter, if none of these programme channels (74/60/8) are viewable then you are not receiving said multiplex, unable to determine as to whether you should be or not as your location is unknown , info on same preferably given in the form of a post code or one from nearby, e.g: shop incl Post Office.
