Extra Freeview HD channels arrive in East Midlands, Somerset and Tyneside
Those who can already receive Freeview HD channels 101-105 and can receive services from the Waltham (East Midlands), Mendip (Somerset) transmitters or Pontop Pike (Tyneside) will gain access to BBC Four HD, CBeebies HD, BBC News HD and Al Jazeera English HD as well as standard definition Al Jazeera Arabic.
When to retune to get the extra HD channels:
Viewers in the East Midlands and around Tyneside with a Freeview HD device should retune on the 25th March 2014; viewers in Somerset on the 1st April 2014. The extra channels will not be carried on relay transmitters.
Some viewers in these areas have already reported reception of the extra Freeview HD channels from other transmitters in neighbouring regions. The switch-on of additional transmitters is part of a plan to offer extra Freeview HD channels to 70% of UK households by mid-June.
