* Freeview Multiplexes

The number or letter beside the channels in the above list represents the Multiplex (or MUX) that carries the channel. Freeview channels are broadcast on one of six dedicated Freeview multiplexes, and as channels are grouped in multiplexes, it’s common that you’ll either receive all of the channels on a multiplex, or none of the channels on that multiplex.

More on Multiplexes in our Glossary | See also Reception Help

  • Multiplex PSB1 – Operated by the BBC – Includes BBC 1, 2 and Three
  • Multiplex PSB2 – Operated by Channel 3&4 Ltd – Includes the ITV group, plus E4 / More 4

  1. Owen Says:

    Film 4 moved from COM6 to PSB2, a few weeks ago.

  2. Katherine Says:

    Hello I seem to have lost the channels on PBS2 Channel 4, itv, itv2, Channel 5, CITV etc? I’ve autotuned a couple of times but htey aren’t coming back. Why is this and what can I do?

  3. Radio&Telly Says:

    Help with missing channels can be found here: http://www.radioandtelly.co.uk/freeviewhelp/missing.html

  4. Mike houldsworth Says:

    I have freeview I keep getting told that I should have a dongle connection if I had one connected I would get a greater selection of programmes. What is a dongle and were can I purchase one from

  5. L. Coleman Says:

    We live in the south and yet Freeview appears not to have BBC South. Why the limitation

  6. Bizman Says:

    LCN 126 is now Tiny Pop

  7. Russell Biggart Says:

    I recently re-tuned Humax box which has worked perfectly! Now I have HD channels and everything else is scrambled. I have tried eveything and now pulling my hair out! I have re-set the box, re-set to defualts, swirched everything off, checked the cables, so how are my HD channels brilliant and everything else is rubbish!! I simply dont know what to do and ‘freeview’ couldn’t help me at all!! Please write if you can guide me … Russell

  8. davidwf Says:

    Hi, just wondered why you are not listing, amongst others, the new ITVbe channel 26 ?

  9. Joanne Beaven Says:

    Hi, when Davidwf said amongst others didn’t you think to refresh your whole list? Surely you have to keep a website like this up to date? It happened weeks ago. You didn’t notice 90 changed, 71 was added…etc.?

  10. Radio&Telly Says:

    We try our best to keep the list up-to-date, and we have a button on the page for people to report changes that we’ve missed. Now that you’ve let us know, we’ve made the changes – not bad for a Sunday evening!
