What is happening?
Following a decision by Ofcom to make more bandwidth available for mobile data, and after discussions with channels impacted, the transmitter operator Arqiva has chosen to stop transmitting services on some specific airwaves.
Unfortunately, this means some +1 and HD TV services will be closing. Given the nature of these channels, viewers won’t lose access to any specific content, and can continue watching main channels and access content via on demand services such as All4 and My5.
What do I need to do?
You will need to retune on the 22nd June 2020 in order to continue receiving channels; you may see a YVM302 error code on screen when trying to view the affected channels.
Instructions on how to retune your device can be found here.
