We understand a lot of Freeview viewers are having problems receiving CBS Drama after our recent move. The following may help clear up any confusion.

WHY CAN I NO LONGER FIND CBS DRAMA ON MY FREEVIEW SERVICE?

CBS Drama is still available to Freeview customers. Due to a frequency change last week, the channel reaches fewer households and requires viewers to have equipment compatible with the DVB-T2 broadcast standard (Freeview HD, Freeview Play, YouView). For those living in areas where it's still available, it's now on channel 71.

I HAVE AN HD READY TV BUT I CAN'T RECEIVE CBS DRAMA. WHY?

If you have an HD ready TV, you may still need to attach an HD box, (i.e. Sky HD, Freesat HD, Freeview HD) to your TV. This is different to having a TV or box compatible with Freeview HD. Please also take in to account that the CBS Drama signal does not reach the whole country. Please check www.digitaluk.co.uk/coveragechecker to see whether CBS Drama is available in your area.

WHY DO I NEED A FREEVIEW HD TV OR BOX TO RECEIVE A CHANNEL THAT'S NOT IN HD?

CBS Drama can now only be received by devices that have a DVB-T2 tuner. DVB-T2 channels can be either in standard or high definition. Remember to check Digital UK's Coverage Checker to see which channels should be available in your area.

I CAN STILL GET CBS DRAMA ON FREEVIEW, BUT WHY DOES THE PICTURE BREAK UP?

The CBS Drama signal is now transmitted at a lower power and covers fewer areas than many of the other Freeview channels. You may want to have your aerial checked, to see if it's the optimum type for reception in your area.

WHERE CAN I WATCH CBS DRAMA NOW?

CBS Drama is still available on Sky, Virgin, HD-ready Freeview services and Freesat. For more information about Freesat click here.
