Can I set programme reminders on Freeview?


Yes, most TVs and set-top boxes will let you set programme reminders.

How to do this depends on your TV or set-top box, but you usually just have to go to your TV Guide, choose the TV show that's airing in the future and then click on it using your remote control.

You'll then be asked if you want to set a reminder, and if you select Yes, an alarm clock symbol will appear. Then you'll be reminded when the show is about to start, usually via a pop-up message that appears on your screen.

User manual instructions

If this doesn't work, there will be instructions in your TV or box's user manual.

If you can't find the user manual, make a note of the model number and search on the manufacturer's website. Most have individual manuals that you can download or read online. If yours doesn't, it's best to contact the manufacturer directly or to ask at the retailer where you bought your device.


Yes. It's easy to set programme reminders.

In the TV Guide section of the Freeview mobile app, tap on the show you want to watch, then tap on the alarm clock symbol. You'll get a notification reminding you when the show is about to start.
