Freeview Changes 5 November 2019

Freeview DTT changes that have been made in Q4 Issued November 2019.  Recap in the read more section.  Downloads Trade Technical Material
 
Changes to the availability of Film4+1 and More4+1 on Freeview.

Both channels have moved to different multiplexes and with that reduced

availability.

Viewers may need to retune to continue watching the services. On older TVs
and boxes, a full retune may be required (any option to 'add channels'
should be avoided), while newer Freeview Play receivers will automatically
make the changes.

Film4+1 on LCN 45 has been previously universally available on Freeview.
However, now with its move from the PSB2/D3&4 mux to COM5/Arqiva C, viewers
who receive Freeview Lite (fewer channels) via a local relay will no longer
receive the channel. They can, however, continue to watch the main Film4
channel via Freeview channel 15 or catch-up on Film4 online via Channel 4's
on-demand portal All 4.

More4+1 on LCN 86 has been previously available to all viewers with a newer
Freeview HD or Freeview Play compatible device. With its move from the
PSB3/BBC B HD mux to COM7/Arqiva C, The service will now only be available
in areas receiving the temporary HD muxes. As a rule of thumb, if BBC News
HD is available on channel 107, then More4+1 will be available after a
retune.

To note, at 12noon on the 14th November, Channel 4 will be changing E4+1's
Freeview slot, leading to a further retune being needed then.
