About Freeview

What does it cost to call the Freeview TV advice line? When is it open?

Because it’s an 0345 number, calls to our advice line will now normally come out of any inclusive minutes you have with your telephone service for both mobiles and landlines.

If you don’t have an inclusive minute plan, calls to 0345 6 numbers are charged in a similar way to 01, 02 numbers. From landlines this typically costs up to 15p per minute, and between 3p to 58p from mobiles depending on your provider.

Ofcom, the communications regulator, offers a guide to UK call charges.

If you’re unsure how much your call will cost, we recommend contacting your phone service provider.
