Bigger, Better, Freeview

Posted July 26, 2017 - Blog Posts,News and Blog

Over the last few years, Freeview has been growing – so much so that the TV guide is bursting at the seams. In the last two years, we’ve added channels like BLAZE, with the hit series Vikings; and Quest Red, specialising in irresistibly real TV, plus Channel 5 HD and much more. Even more channels and shows to play, stream and enjoy for FREE.

To make room for new channels we are updating the TV guide on 2 August. All you need to do is retune, either in the afternoon or in the evening (or any time after that) to get the full refreshed channel line-up. Now if you have a more modern TV, it may automatically prompt you to retune. If not, don’t fret, you won’t miss out. You can follow the simple retune instructions here to get access to all the new shows.

Once you’ve retuned, you’ll be free to frolic in the new pastures that is the bigger, better Freeview. Go forth and explore till your heart’s content. You can enjoy it all, and the best part, it’s still all for free!

QUEST RED – Channel 38

Take a peek over at QUEST RED, the home of ‘Irresistibly Real TV’. If you fancy an escape into a world of jaw-dropping real lives, spine tingling real crime and heart-warming true-life stories, then look no further. Hop on over to channel 38 for 24/7 for shows like Katie Price: My Crazy Life, Say Yes to the Dress, Alaska Haunting, Murder on CCTV and Bondi Vet.

BLAZE™ – Channel 83

BLAZE celebrates people achieving the extraordinary and beams it straight into your living room, with determination, courage and a hint of maverick spirit. BLAZE will immerse you in inspiring stories of unique people, who live remarkable lives their own way. With shows that are American by nature, but distinctly British by nurture, it raises the flag for real people boldly following their own path. Pawn Stars marathon, Swamp People or Storage Wars? Pop over to channel 80 for your fill.

Channel 5HD – Channel 105

Channel 5 HD is the home of great television for all the family, with loads of quality shows including entertainment, documentaries, sport, drama from the UK and US, films, reality, comedy, children’s and news. All in High Definition.

CBS Action – Channel 64

If high-octane, blood pumping entertainment is more up your street, then CBS Action has all your needs covered. Edge of your seat thrillers and cult classics are aired 24 hours a day so no matter the time, you can get your blood-pumping with action packed thrillers, sci-fi favourites, and fast paced movies. Classic US series Star Trek, NCIS, CSI, Walker, Texas Ranger and Dexter are some but a few of what’s waiting on CBS Action.
