Freeview has just updated the latest advice for viewers affected by the Bilsdale transmitter fire.  You can read the full update on their service update article.


  • A new temporary transmitter has been installed at Sutton Bank (near Thirsk)
  • From 8th September, many more viewers to the south, east and west of Cold Kirby may have some channels available to them if they do an automatic retune.  If a viewer is in one of these areas they should try retuning their TV.

  • Freeview has updated area-specific information and advice on the service update.
