The BBC is making a change to its Freeview HD channels north of the border, affecting two of its channels.
BBC Scotland HD, which is available every evening from 7pm on Freeview, moves to channel 106.
BBC Four HD, which the BBC is planning to close in 2024, is moved down to channel 108.
The move is due to complete around midday on Wednesday 14th December 2022. Viewers may need to rescan their TV to see the channels in their new locations.
The changes will also affect viewers using YouView devices from BT, TalkTalk and Sony, as well as newer non-YouView TalkTalk TV boxes.
With the move, BBC Scotland HD and BBC Four HD will share the same channel numbering across Freeview and Freesat in Scotland.
