Service Status

The Freeview service is constantly being updated and improved.  Find out about the latest updates from the headlines on the right hand side of this page.  Here you will see new channels, Freeview Play updates and information about technical updates or events that may cause temporary disruption to viewing.

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.  If you experience interference with channels or channels go missing one reason may be engineering works in progress.  Check the links below to find out about planned works in your TV region.
