About service updates

The Freeview service is constantly being updated and improved. Here you'll see new channel announcements, and information about technical updates or events that may cause temporary disruption to viewing.

TV signals

The TV signals that reach your aerial, allowing you to watch the line-up of channels in your area, are broadcast by a transmitter. From time to time maintenance is required to keep the transmitter working or improve the service.

Changes are being made to the way some channels are broadcast on Freeview in parts of the UK. If you experience interference with channels or channels go missing, one reason may be engineering works in progress.

Use the Freeview Checker to find out about planned works in your TV region.
