Hi All, I have a Philips DTR 1500 Digital TV box but I can't get Film4 which is now free. On their site it says its on channel 31. 31 is Ceebies. I have updated and rescan for new channels but still can't get it. I thought the Freeview Box and Digital Box are the same. Are they? Thanks for any help. rick
On Sunday 23 July 2006 at 9pm, Film Four renamed to Film4 and became subscription-free. To coincide with the launch on Freeview, the channel gets a makeover although the channel's editorial policy won't be changing.
The free-to-view channel is on Freeview channel 31. It's also available subscription-free on Sky channel 315, NTL channel 701/50 and Telewest channel 444.
maybe on different channel as some boxes when they are set up have a total different set of numbers and some are user selectable ;)
I think the freeview channel that Film4 is now on used to be More4 + 1. Do you have a channel listed as More4 + 1?? My Daewoo iDTV used to get More4 + 1 which I rescanned last week, and Film4 appeared with no problems.
I had the same problem, mine is a Panasonic, what I did was go to menu, then tuning menu, then auto setup, it does change a few channels ie cbeebies will be on 70 / 71 and I think ITV4 will be on 30 something
