Sewing Quarter - which your site says is available from West Runton on channel 73 - advised a retune would be required after 1.00 pm on Monday last. The advice said they would be on Red Button - surely some mistake!
We have retuned 3 TVs and cannot find Sewing Quarter anywhere - is it no longer available via West Runton?

Rob Johnson: Sewing Quarter has moved to the COM6 multiplex which is not broadcast from West Runton. The broadcaster's message about a red button service seems to actually be that that the channel can be streamed over the internet on a compatible smart TV or set top box during the hours when it is not broadcasting on Freeview.
