Retune your Free To Air channels

There's always new channels coming from Free to Air, so it's worth retuning your TalkTalk TV Box every now and then to check. Retuning your box will add any new channels to your TV Guide, pick up any channels that may have moved as well as remove any that are no longer available.

You can retune your TalkTalk TV box at any time. The first thing to check is that your aerial is plugged into your set top box. 

You'll need a working TV aerial plugged into your TalkTalk TV box to receive Free to Air  channels. The number of Free to Air channels you receive will depend upon your location in the country and atmospheric conditions.
