BBC Regional HD Freeview Changes

 – Latest channel launches and updates on Freeview

On 22 March 2023 some broadcasters are making important changes to their channels.  

You will need to retune to update your TV and keep your channels and TV Guide up to date.  

The main change is that BBC One regional will now have the HD version on Chanel 101. 


The above BBC changes are in line with the BBC’s plan to roll out new HD versions of BBC One on Freeview for all English regions.

The new channels to launch are
