Margie : True Entertainment and True Movies have moved to the local TV multiplex (this has nothing to do with 5G) so you will only be able to receive them if you can get a local TV station on Freeview channel 7 or 8. Have you checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind each TV? Are all of your TVs connected to the same aerial? Please provide a full postcode so that we can see which transmitters you should be able to receive, where you are in relation to them and your predicted coverage etc.
