The main changes are shown in this diagram below. You will need to do a "first time installation" to ensure the channel numbers are correct.

Dave Lindsay.
You say to A. Blumenfeld "you asked the same question yesterday and an answer was given" but it's not on this page. It seems to me there are too many "pages" on which to ask questions and therefore you can't always find the answer. Also can you tell me why this, and indeed other earlier update emails are headed "Updated - changes to Freeview channel numbers this week on September 19th 2012", when we are in March 2013.

Ken Collyer: In response to your comment "but it's not on this page": which is why the text you quoted is followed by a colon and a hyperlink to the page in question.

The changes on this page are those which took place on the date mentioned. I haven't seen the other "emails" you refer to, so can't possibly comment.

Live in Llandudno and when the pop up on my Toshiba TV said to retune - did not do it - as on the TV in the bedroom did retune and all the channels are on different numbers which we have been unable to get to their original ones and we now get programmes from Wales. So my lounge tv now has no BBC programmes - though we can get them through Freeview. Have tried re-tuning the TV in the bedroom and it just mixes the channels up again. Wish I had left it alone!
