Talking Pictures TV shifts away from local TV

Vintage film channel Talking Pictures has advised local TV viewers to make the switch to Freeview channel 81.

The channel is advising viewers who normally watch Talking Pictures via local TV stations on Freeview channel 7 or 8 to switch to the main 24/7 Talking Pictures TV channel, which following a frequency change at the end of November is now widely available on Freeview channel 81.

Otherwise, the channel says, viewers will miss out on its programming as contracts with local stations expire.

Not all local channels have carried Talking Pictures, but those that have typically do so for a few hours each day.

Talking Pictures has posted a YouTube video explaining the changes.
