ITV shuffles channels around on satellite

ITV is currently moving some of its services delivered via satellite to new frequencies, as it maximises use of its satellite bandwidth.

Most Sky and Freesat viewers are unaffected by the changes, but viewers who want to see a different regional version of the main ITV channel, or want to see programmes on STV or UTV HD may now need to retune their satellite receiver to continue watching their alternative "channel 3" service.

Mobile network operators to gain access to more Freeview frequencies

UPDATED Ofcom has today confirmed it's taking away more of the Freeview TV frequency band for use by mobile broadband services from the beginning of the next decade.
 
The regulator has pledged to secure the last remaining TV frequencies for use by Freeview without the need for another 'switchover'.
