Retune your TV set

FREEVIEW users in Shetland are being asked to reset their TV equipment on Wednesday (24 July) as local airwaves are being cleared for the roll-out of faster mobile broadband.

Channels such as BBC One, STV, Channel 4, Channel 5 and HD services will be moved to new frequencies.

The change does not however mean that Shetland will be getting 4G mobile services any time soon, as similar upgrades have been made at sites across the UK.

David Scott, chief executive of Digital UK, said: “It’s a good idea to retune your Freeview TV or box regularly to make sure your channel list is up to date.

“It usually only takes a few minutes but if anyone is unsure what to do, there’s plenty of information available on our website or from our advice line team.”

A spokeswoman for Vodafone said: “We will launch 4G in the UK by the late summer. Unfortunately we’re not able to tell you where in the UK at the moment but we will let you know as soon as it arrives in Shetland.”
