Nationwide Freeview tune-up takes place today

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

You’ve probably been ignoring that ‘retune now’ message on your TV for weeks, but if you don’t do it today then you risk losing endless Top Gear repeats, the Hollyoaks omnibus on Channel 4+1 and all those home shopping channels.

Freeview has designated today National Retune Day, sort of. Essentially, the Freeview service is being given a technical overhaul and anyone who doesn’t retune their Freeview TV or set-up box risks losing channels.

Much of the retune is related to “technical preparations”, the body said, for the impending digital switchover and the rollout of Freeview HD.

Gadget Show fans will be pleased to hear that the retune will make Channel Five more widely available.

A new channel called Quest will also be delivered onto you telly, post retune. Quest is run by Discovery Networks UK, so expect a smattering of Discovery Channel-esque content.

Viewers are advised to retune from lunchtime today, Freeview said. Further information and retuning guides for specific makes and models of TV can be found online. ®
