List of TV channels and radio stations no longer broadcasting on Freeview, Freesat or Sky No Card

This is a list of channels that are no longer broadcast on free-to-air television. Some channels have become subscription (such as Sky Sports News), others continue in another form (S4C Clirlun is still broadcast in standard definition) and some still broadcast on DAB or analogue radio (such as Kismat Radio). Of course, some just went bust (like Setanta Sports). Older channels are listed on the History - page.

Really happy with freeview but wonder why does my 2nd television not get all the freeview channels that my main television gets?

Are both sets Freeview HD capable? Are they connected to the same aerial system? Are they tuned to the same transmitter? Which programmes are 'missing' on one TV? What signal strengths are you getting on both sets for each multiplex channel?

Craigkelly uses the following channels: 27, 24, 21, 29, 32, 37, 55 and 56. So you need to be using a wideband aerial for both sets.

How old is your tv that is missing channels, as some channels are transmitted using dvb2 and if tv isnt compatible thats why they could be missing.
