On 4 November 2020 changes to some channel numbers will be taking place.

This is to comply with requirements published by Ofcom as part of a review of prominence for public service broadcasting. Details are outlined in their statement on changes to the EPG code.

For more information on why these changes are taking place see:

There will be no changes to the broadcast, hours coverage, or content for these channels. 

What do I need to do?

You will need to retune to update your TV to keep your channels and TV guide up to date.

All your channels will remain in their old positions until after you have completed a retune.

When you are ready to retune you can find out more by watching our handy retune videos.
