Challenge changes and closure of Pick TV +1

If you’ve been missing Challenge since yesterday afternoon you’ll need to rescan your Freeview box.

The channel moved multiplexes on Freeview which requires a retune for most Freeview receivers.

Viewers in Wales can now receive Challenge 24 hours a day.

Pick TV +1 is no longer available on Freeview due to these changes.


Cartoon Network HD now available

Cartoon Network HD has launched exclusively on Sky today.

The new HD channel is a simulcast of the standard definition channel.

Cartoon Network HD is available on Sky channel 601 for all Sky+ HD customers who subscribe to the appropriate package.

Non Sky+ HD customers will still receive the standard definition version on channel 601.
