Freeview number for Film 4

  Newuser38 10:04 05 Aug 2006

I think I should be able to get this now but cant see the channel number on any of the ads. I have retuned the box twice now and it added virgin radio but no new tv channels. Any ideas please.

Try to manual tune in channel.31,if you get a zero reading,your aerial is not suitable.I took my free view box to my local tv centre who on retuning, picked up channel 31.Back at home I get "no signal available" on it must be the aerial

As Film 4 has only recently being launched on Freeview, I will keep an eye out for some films to watch.

I never thought that Freeview would have it's own film channel but I'm pleased that it has even if they only broadcast 12 hours a day!

channel 31 is the only one I cannot get. At on stage it tuned in on that channel to CBBIES. Will try again over the next day or two before I close the thread.

my son had to retuine his unit about 4 or 5 times before it picked up the new Film 4.

Good Luck,

Thanks but I already check the TV guide *every* day ;)

Still not managed and I get all the other 4's More4 and e4+1 etc. I notice in the TV paper that Film4 has FV against the channels but it is not highlighted like the rest of the Free View channels maybe we cannot get it in our area yet.

Will try again at regular intervals.
