The Children’s channels will move to 201-229

The Text channels will move to 250-259
The Streamed channels will move to 260-299

How to retune

To retune you need to press ‘Menu’ on your remote control and follow the on-screen instructions or those printed in your manual. What happens next may vary slightly depending on which TV, recorder or set top box you have.

A typical sequence is:

  1. Press menu on your box or TV remote control
  2. Now select set-up, installation, update or similar option. If you’re asked for a password the default code is 1234 or 0000
  3. Now select the ‘first time installation’ option (sometimes called ‘factory reset’, ‘full retune’ or ‘default settings’). Press ‘OK’ if your equipment asks if it is OK to delete existing channels. This will clear your existing settings and find the new channel line-up. If prompted then save the channels that are found
