National Freeview Update

At the end of the month, a nation wide upgrade of the Freeview digital TV platform will take place to make the signal of Five stronger and to pave the way for Freeview HD later in the year.

On 30th September, every freeview box and television will need to be re-scanned to enable it to continue watching Five correctly.

After retuning, homes will also be able to recieve Quest, a new channel from Discovery Networks International. The upgrade is also in preparation for the start of Freeview HD which will start broadcasting from Winterhill later this year.
