Freeview in Scarborough Affected by Changes

Freeview in Scarborough Affected by Changes

Published by Jon Burke at 7:01am 13th November 2019.

Freeview viewers in the Scarborough area may need to retune their TV equipment today, to continue watching some programmes.

Some Freeview channels are moving to new airwaves to allow for the future development of new mobile broadband services.

After a decision by the UK Government, transmitters are being updated region by region as part of a major engineering programme being carried out between now and 2020.

Engineering work will begin shortly after midnight and some Freeview channels will be off-air overnight until 6am.

After this, any viewers receiving their TV signal from these who find they are missing channels can retune.

Services from smaller local relays may be subject to disruption until late afternoon. Satellite and cable TV are not affected.

Further required changes will take place at some transmitters in 2020, following the completion of engineering work in neighbouring areas.

Retuning should be straightforward and some TV equipment will retune automatically.

Some older aerials may need to be replaced to continue receiving all channels.

Viewers may be eligible for free in-home support, including aerial work if needed.

Anyone who needs advice, or who finds they are still missing services after retuning, can visit the Freeview website at or contact the Freeview Advice Line free on 0808 100 0288.
