Paramount and Quest+1 move in end-of-year Freeview reshuffle


An end-of-year shuffle has resulted in a number of Freeview channel number changes.

Viacom has rearranged its channels, promoting Paramount Network and Discovery's Quest+1 has moved to fill a gap in the channel list.

- Paramount Network has moved from channel 57 to 54
- 5SELECT has moved from channel 54 to 55
- 5STAR+1 (only available in some areas) has moved from 55 to 56
- 5USA+1 (only available in some areas) has moved from channel 56 to 57
- Quest+1 has moved from channel 83 to 76

In some instances, a retune will be needed in order for the channels to appear in their new order. Freeview Play and YouView boxes should adjust automatically. 5STAR+1 and 5USA+1 are not available in all areas.

Channels 82, 83, 84 and 92 are currently unused across the UK, any other slots in the channel list are due to geographically restricted channels.
