Over the last few years Freeview has been growing – so much so that the TV guide is bursting at the seams. To make room for new channels we are updating the TV guide on 2 August. All you need to do is retune in the afternoon or evening to get the full refreshed line up.

In the last year or two, for example, we have added channels like BLAZE, with the hit series Vikings; and Quest Red, specialising in irresistibly real TV, plus Channel 5 HD and many more.

On 2 August, the Freeview TV guide will be updated to make space for more channels. All you need to do is retune in the afternoon or evening (or any time after). More modern TVs will prompt you to retune when the changes are made or if you have an older product then you need to follow the retune instructions below.

Here are the main changes you will see (the detailed changes will be listed nearer the time):

The Children’s channels will move to 201-229
The News channels will move to 231-249
The Text channels will move to 250-259
The Streamed channels will move to 260-299
The Adult channels will move to 670-699
