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.

The LG TV just gets text on channel 100. I haven't tried 555, as I'm currently watching the Toshiba TV in my bedroom. It gets the various links you describe on channel 100. On 555 the Toshiba gets a message that the accessible TV is starting soon.

Is Amazon Fire better than Chromecast? However, I don't know if Amazon Fire supports Britbox and Discovery+.

I'll try and find a mirroring app that works.

Charles Stuart:

If you have HbbTV turned on, then Channels 100 & 555 should display correctly on the LG.
There are quite a few sets, your Toshiba is obviously one, that don't fully support Freeview Play and HbbTV and it's an oddity that such sets display 100 correctly but not 555, I have yet to discover why.

I'm afraid I can't help regarding Amazon Fire & Chromecast.

With Hbb turned on 555 and 100 do work on the LG. Britbox still doesn't. I downloaded a free mirroring app but I couldn't get it to work. I phoned Britbox to see what they recommended and the customer service agent who took the call gave me the personal recommendation of using an Amazon Firestick. I bought the cheapest version at John Lewis (which was even cheaper because I work for Waitrose) and it works brilliantly.
