If you are, you will need to do a retune on your Freeview equipment. You may find that you have to do a "first time installation".

We are on The Wrekin transmitter, all was fine until we retuned on the dreaded 14th November, we now get BBC1 Wales ITV1 is totally unviewable. What has happened to my old channels? I have retuned three times and still get the same poor signal. I have changed nothing at my end so can someone explain why? I checked The Wrekin I should be getting all west midlands channels but I am not.

Hehe switch over complete... How many retunes are going to happen from 4G... I'm predicting in my area Belmont and Waltham as some channels are above 698MHz.... Why do they transmit on these frequencys? I thought GHz travels in air better and requires smaller aerial?
Offcom are muppits
....same as offgen who are s'posed to control prices so puplic don't get ripped of???!!!

Where is the loyaty?

Chris Oyitch: Waltham is scheduled to change frequency on Mux BBCA in May 2013. Belmont is already using C60- so will not require a retune to introduce an offset for this phase of changes for 4G. The question remains whether the amount of spectrum available for 4G will be extended in the not too distant future to take in C49 to C60. This requires agreement from the other countries in Europe, but if implemented would see another round of retunes with the COM muxes possibly taking up temporary frequencies in the C31 to C37 part of group A, with a possible move to nationwide SFN working on C22, C25, C28 in the longer term. This would require the use of DVB-T2 on all COM muxes plus the PSB muxes at Belmont, Sandy Heath and Bilsdale to work, so is likely to be controversial if or when implemented.
