Need help retuning Freeview? Here's a very unhelpful URL

29 September 2009

Tomorrow morning, Freeview is getting a bit of spit and polish. Not literally of course - unless your Freeview box is made of shoes. Some TV and radio channels will shift positions and without retuning you'll be staring into an endless photonic void. Around 25 million Freeview TV sets, set-top boxes and digital recorders will be affected across the country, but thankfully the BBC has provided you with a concise website address where you'll find the latest information:

    Or more likely, just click it. This Hyper-Text will never catch on!

    Those URLs are commonplace, they are good for the search engines, lots of keywords in there. As you say most folks would just copy paste or click through.

    I've not tuned my TV in since I got it over a year ago as I use sky instead. I assume if I ever decide to use the freeview, like any new television the settings will sort themsleves out and that I need not tune in just to retune??

    good bloggers are normally good writers.numerous for that pictures.I coundn’t agree far more. The composed articles will probably be sole key to create your weblog grow. Ought to have exciting content and totally updated.
