Older Freeview Set Top Boxes Destined For The Scrap Heap

[adrotate banner=”45″]

Freeview is today taking a step forward by updating and retuning its channels across the UK.  This will allow Freeview to carry high definition content in the future.  The downside to this however is that around 20,000 older freeview boxes will, from today, stop functioning.

For more information to see if your equipment is likely to be affected please see the BBCs related file.

While newer equipment should experience no problems and just need to re tuned older equipment could face problems updating or, in the worst case, stop working at all.
