steve wilkins: Yes, you need either a TV or set top box/PVR capable of receiving the HD channels to get Front Runner on Freeview.

Front Runner is on COM8 on some transmitters. So it is broadcast using DVB-T2 encoding which means you need to have a TV equipped with that type of tuner so it can receive Freeview HD programmes (even if Front Runner is not in HD). It also means you need to be in an area covered by pone of the transmitters carrying COM8.

If you do have that equipment and live in such an area it should be found on Channel 91.

If you provide a full post code we could find out if your area is covered by a transmitter that carries COM8 and whther it reaches your location.

Susie Burnett:

I suggest you contact Front Runner themselves, there is a link near the top of the page.

This website has no connection with any broadcaster and is entirely independent.

Tom Firth:

This is not the website of Front Runner. There is a link available near the top of this page, use that to ask yopur question directly to them.


Are all your other channels working OK? If not then you probably have a TV fault. If they are then perform a manual retune on that multiplex only.
