Hd channels

First Timer

Hi. I might sound stupid but how many HD channels should be available.  The check said I should have 16 but I only have 5.

Hi @LauraJ67


I get 15 including  "about freeview" . Could you please list which ones you get as it sounds like you are not receiving all channels from the transmitter which has been a common problem since the "upgrade" to them. Which transmitter do you receive your signals from? If you are not sure enter your postcode on Digital UK Coverage checker


Try unplugging the aerial then do a retune WITHOUT it connected, this will clear the box memory. Reconnect the aerial and retune again. See if this has improved your situation. Along with HD channels there will also be other channel on the same frequencies.
