What is the 700 Clearance Programme?

The 700 MHz band is part of the radio spectrum we use to broadcast Freeview services. In order to make space for future 5G mobile broadband services, we are required by the government to clear our services from that band. This is a rolling programme over 3 years. Those affected may need to retune their television or in a very small number of cases need a new antenna. For more information see the Freeview support website.
