Re: CNN going on 1st September

"Just joined BT and most unhappy to see CNN and BBC News are not available. Is there another way I can get them on my TV?"

BBC News is on Freeview channel 231 for sd and 107 for hd.

HD is not available in all areas and both 231 and 107 are independent from BT.  If you left BT the box should still pick up at least 231 and possibly 107.

Re: CNN going on 1st September

The post from Simon said he couldn't get BBC News with BT, I take it he has an aerial installed which in normal circumstances would enable him to at least SD Channel 231 which is the SD equivalent of the 107 news channel.

Thank you. Unfortunately, I don't have 107 or 231 with BT TV 😪

Yes, I do have an aerial installed. It was done as part of the BT installation process.

The BBC News channel can be viewed live via i-player if you are unable to receive via Freeview.

Re: CNN going on 1st September

Thank you! This is a great solution for me. I did not realise iPlayer allowed you to watch BBC channels, so this has solved my problem. Please, have a mince pie on me! 😀
