Transmission changes: rollout continues

Technical changes to the way Freeview channels are broadcast continue to be rolled out across the country. On July 23, transmitters in Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Hampshire, Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Wiltshire, Devon and Cornwall switched to the new format. On July 29, transmitters in Cheshire, Greater London, Lancashire and South Yorkshire will follow suit. The changes have proved controversial because around 1% of Freeview boxes will no longer work after the change.
