What if there is a new channel available?

To receive a new channel, you may need to retune (or ‘rescan’) your Freeview device. You may find that your device does this automatically for you, but if not, we have lots of advice on retuning, including video and step-by-step guides.

APP

You'll find news about channel launches and other updates in the Freeview News section of the app. Just go to My Freeview and scroll to the bottom of the list to tap on Freeview News.

Or you can visit our TV Changes section which will let you know about any changes to signals or channel numbers.
