Freeview channel numbers to change

By
Some multichannel services from ITV and Channel 4 will be changing Freeview channel numbers next week.

On Tuesday, February 24, ITV4 will move from channel 28 to 24; CITV will move from 75 to 72; ITV2+1 will move from 31 to 27; E4 will move from 29 to 28; and E4+1 will move from 30 to 29.

Freeview said the changes are being made "to enable new channels to be added and to improve the TV guide".

A rescan or retune will need to be performed on digital terrestrial receivers in order to continue receiving the channels affected, and PVR owners will need to ensure any planned recordings are re-established after the scan completes.
