  • How can I see upcoming programmes?

    If you would like to see what is playing in the future, click on the ‘Programme Guide’ tab. This looks like the TV Guide you may be familiar with from most Freeview TVs or set top boxes. You can scroll up and down the channels using the up and down arrows on the left, and select which time you would like to view using the ‘Time of day’ and ‘Select day’ boxes in the top right as well as the left and right facing arrows. If you have the 4Record add-on, you are able to record programmes from this page. For more information on this, refer to the ‘What is 4Record?‘ section of this site.
