* 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
  • Multiplex PSB3 – High Definition, Operated by the BBC
  • Multiplex COM4 – Operated by SDN – Includes ITV3, QVC
  • Multiplex COM5 – Operated by Arqiva. Carries Pick TV, Dave and Really
  • Multiplex COM6 – Operated by Arqiva. Carries Yesterday, Film 4 and many commercial radio stations

  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!

  11. NoOneIsListening Says:

    Weve lost BBC2 on our DVD recorder. It is still on the TV set. We have tried downloading from TV to DVD recorder but DVD recorder is telling us that BBC2 is unavailable.

  12. T.vanner Says:

    Why is channel 61 guide no longer being shown on the TV

  13. IAN CLABON Says:

    Channel 171 is bbc local radio we get radio London.

    We get southern itv (meridian) . ME38NE

    Why not radio kent?.

    Thanks Ian Clabon

  14. Alan Munford Says:

    Classic FM radio station is now available. I think (not sure) it is channel 732?

  15. Richard Bavin Says:

    What freeview channel is ITV Meridian

  16. Anthony Says:

    Viva now only broadcasting for a limited time during the day.

  17. Claire Hill Says:

    Channel 125 is the only channel I have no signal on and have noticed in this list that it is the only channel with LTV mux. Could this be why no signal on this one channel. Has been like this for about a week.
    Thank you.

  18. GeordieLad Says:

    I note with interest the +1 channel for Film 4 at Ch45 but, despite several retunes of my TVs and set Top Boxes, that channel cannot be found. I also understood that there was a +1 service for Movies For Men on Ch50 (not in your list) but, similarly, rescans do not show it. Athough I would expect them to be transmitted by my TV station (Sandy Heath), is there any reason why they cannot be found?

    Incidentally, why is Ch710 shown as a TV channel “Motors TV” on mux COM7 and also with the same number as a Radio channel for “BBC World Service” on mux PSB1? My scanned channel list does not show separate listings for Radio and TV, simply Channel Numbers – although I must say I’ve never found Motors TV.

    Any explanation for this (and the earlier missing TV channel/s) would be appreciated.

    My location is NN12 7TN

  19. GeordieLad Says:

    When will you be issuing an uptodate list? I note errors for TV channels at Ch21 (Now 5 USA – formerly on Ch31) and Spike (new service on Ch31)?

  20. david Says:

    as above, also note that channel 58 is shown as BT sport whereas it IS Viva ….whatsapppening ? your listings used to be perfect !

  21. Ron Says:

    Why can’t I get Talking Pictures on my Freeview tv

  22. Compo Says:

    I can’t get Talking Pictures either – which is a blow because it is teh one channel that I would watch avidly.

  23. Bernie Hinton Says:

    Talking Pictures, according to their website, is available on Freeview on channel 81 ! Only, of course, it isn’t !!! What’s happening here??

  24. Ron Says:

    Exactly…. I check every day but still can’t get it on Freeview. Please someone put it on so we can watch it.

  25. Shirool Ramjohn Says:

    I WAS WATCHING FREEVIEW CHANNEL 77 – RISHTEY EUROPE FOR ABOUT 1 MONTH NOW, AND FOLLOWING IT UP. NOW, SINCE YESTERDAY (30TH NOVEMBER 2015 AT AROUND 1PM IN THE AFTERNOON, WHEN I TURN ON THE TV TO FREEVIEW CHANNEL 77, I AM GETTING A MESSAGE ON THE SCREEN SAYING THAT RISHTEY EUROPE IS CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE.
    COULD YOU TELL ME WHAT IS HAPPENING?
    I AM NOT HAPPY ABOUT THIS.
    I TRIED TO RETUNE, BUT THE CHANNEL 77 DISAPEARED FROM THE TV. I DONT KNOW WHAT I DID WRONG. COULD YOU HELP?

    SHIROOL

  26. gus Says:

    help I retuned , and have lost bbc three and four . how do I get them back ?

  27. Metal Mickey Says:

    Same here – I can get it on my TV’s tuner, but on neither of my Freeview DVD recorders…

  28. Brian Says:

    Talking Pictures, Motors TV, and Film4+1 are tranmitted through a Freeview HD multiplex, althou the channels themselves aren’t HD, and therefore are only available on Freeview HD Tvs and boxes. To be honest, there are more informative and up to date websites than this one. (a516digital.com is one i check regularly). Hope thats cleared things up for a few of you.

  29. Brian Says:

    Movies for Men +1 is also only available on FreeviewHD tuners and boxes. Forgot to ad that one on last post.

  30. Ron Unsworth Says:

    I still can’t get Talking pictures

  31. Yantob Bayer Says:

    I live in Kettering I can get talking pictures on my newer Samsung in one room but even after retuning cannot get channel 81 on an older Samsung in another room or on a bush tv in a third room . I presume they have trouble getting the channel 81 multiplex

  32. Ronnie Says:

    Freeview Talking Pictures on Channel 81 not working properly service didn’t available in West Midlands been lost last September 2015 broken down didn’t see Talking Pictures My Sony Freeview DVD Recoder course programme more than lost 146 channels been removed failed make trouble channels name UK country by Aerial lives New Digital Freeview available programme channels in England because unhappy didn’t see Talking Pictures fixed channels. Freesat available Talking Pictures on channel 306 working fine now, very difficult for Freeview Talking Pictures cannot properly failed channel 81 not good service some trouble not working time which good to bad not sure mean question.

  33. steve Says:

    Having retuned after seeing programs alerted to me, I now have lost most of my favourites, ie Quest ,why ??????

  34. Dawn Says:

    Tired of the updates that remove the channels I’m happy with and give channels I don’t really want.- just lost True movies but got true crime tonight!!!! Also I’m meant to have free view HD but I have lost movies for men+1 which disappeared after christmas

  35. Mark sullivan Says:

    As ch 81 true movies been taken off air

  36. Lucy Says:

    I’ve got every channel but film 4 + 1 , I’ve retuned it & it’s still not come on , don’t know what else to do !

  37. DAVID MATHESON Says:

    HOW CAN I GET THE GOLD CHANNEL

  38. Chris Cunningham Says:

    Hello. Both before and since the recent(last week) retuning of my set as instructed by an onscreen message, I can no longer get Al Jazeera. The channel number, 133, still appears between Sky News and RT, but the channel itself does not appear. My postcode is TA24 6JD. Can you please suggest how I can recover Al Jazeera?
    Thanks.

  39. Frances-Mary Pratt Says:

    I had an interview with Jessica of Freeview7 on the 15th April, in regard to National Autism Awareness Month. Since then, I have heard nothing about when the interview is to be broadcast.

    Could someone get in touch please via E-Mail (as given above)?

    Thanks.

    FRANCES-MARY PRATT (Mrs)

  40. Mr Godfrey T ROLINSON Says:

    You recently changed channels for CBS Drama. due to this many of the viewers are unable to access the new channel and their favorite Programs despite reprogramming there TVs it appears that SKY viewers can get the new channel but many others cant , WHY

  41. Ron Unsworth Says:

    I STILL can’t get Talking Pictures on my Freeview. It can’t be available all over the country. We live about 5 miles from a transmitter.

  42. IAN CLABON Says:

    IS IT ONLY RECEIVEABLE WITH A FREEVIEW HD RECEIVER ?

  43. david harper Says:

    if you have freeview can you still get sky sports pay per view if not any suggestions

  44. davidwf Says:

    Hi, please don’t take this the wrong way….. is this an “official” site or is it run by enthusiasts ?

    I ask because yet again your freeview lists are not up to date – e.g. channel 74 moving to 71.

    Unfortunately I have found the same scenario on every occasion that a channel has moved

    If it is a website run by enthusiasts / amateurs then it is forgiveable, if run by a professional body then it is not….

    like I said please don’t be offended by my opinion!
    Thanks
