Changes to the way the channels are broadcast to viewers in the UK and Ireland mean that some satellite receivers, including a small minority of Freesat and Sky receivers can't receive the channels, some seeing a "no signal" message, although they haven't changed frequency and continue to be broadcast from the same satellite.
Viewers using free-to-air satellite receivers should use the new parameters listed below to regain access to the channels. Viewers with Sky or Freesat boxes that are affected should initially reboot their boxes. Some Freesat users may need to do a new Freesat scan to regain access to the channels if a reboot doesn't work.
