Freeview - Changes to ITV Central and Meridian Regions 30/01/2015

What's Happening on Monday 2nd February?

ITV are making technical changes at the Ridge Hill and Oxford transmitter groups on Monday 2 February. As a result, some viewers may need to retune on or after this date to continue receiving all channels, including ITV1.

The changes are being made to ensure viewers receive the correct programming and advertising for their region.
 

How Are Customers Affected?

All customers living in the Ridge Hill, Oxford transmitter areas will be presented with an on screen message from the 20th January.

The on screen message will be displayed, when turning on the TV, to prompt customers in the affected areas to carry out a retune and will give two options, firstly to press the blue button for further information and secondly to press the Yellow button to clear the message.

After a retune, the local news channel for customers in the Oxford transmitter region changes from ITV Central to ITV Meridian.

No other changes are being made and only customers in the Oxford transmitter region will see a change to their programs. However, it is important to understand that customers in Oxford, Ridge Hill and Midhurst will experience one of the following:

  • Loss of ITV until a retune is completed.
  • Loss of all ITV channels, Channel 4 and Channel 5 until a retune is completed.
  • Some HD customers in the Oxford transmitter may also lose all the BBC B channels (including BBC one and Two HD and Channel 4 HD) until they retune.
