* 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 PSB2 – Operated by Channel 3&4 Ltd – Includes the ITV group, plus E4 / More 4

  • Mark Glaude

    Got most of the HD channels, but not 107 to 113 – do I need to retune it again?

  • Andy

    No CNN but you have it at the centre of your advert ???

  • Ron Unsworth

    When can I expect to get Talking pictures on freeview in North Wales.

  • Is+free+view+channels+free

  • I live in Wrexham North Wales, but still cannot get talking pictures on Freeview channel 81.

  • DazEdwardo

    I’ve just checked on my latest full rescan for you Ron, and I’m afraid to say it’s showing 81 for me, so I suggest if you can make any sense of my first post, give that a go perhaps.

  • Ron Unsworth

    Thanks for your reply Ian, I really do want to crack this but can’t make head or tail with your post. Lots of adds and pluses.
    Can you simplify it for me to know what to ask for please.
    Thanks
    Ron

  • ian clabon

    Sorry website did not like my (linkdashs) in a nut shell you must use a freeview HIGH DEFINITION tuner not just a standard freeview tuner.

  • Ron Unsworth

    Thanks Ian. I will look into that in town tomorrow.
