Planned engineering works

Sometimes engineering work is required on transmitters so that they can keep reliably broadcasting your favourite free-to-air programmes.

If you are affected by engineering work, please don’t try and retune your TV - reception will be restored as soon as the engineering work is completed.  If you don’t want to miss your favourite programmes while the work is taking place, check out our handy guide:
