Channel 5 channels are changing on Freeview from Nov 4th 2020

In July 2019, Ofcom published a statement on changes to the EPG Code.  The statement set out minimum levels of prominence for public service broadcaster (‘PSB’) channels, which must be in place by 4 January 2021.To meet these obligations, all channels currently broadcasting from Channel numbers 24 to 55 on Freeview will move along one position from Nov 4th 2020.


Some of our channel numbers have moved on Freeview. 5STAR has moved from 30 to 31, Paramount Network has moved from 31 to 32, Channel 5+1 has moved from 44 to 45, 5Select has moved from 54 to 55. Please be aware if you have not retuned your TV yet, please do not worry, you will not lose the service.
