On 25 August 2021 Freeview channels Now 70 and Now 80 will switch positions, the television platform has announced.

Viewers will need to retune their televisions to update them with the change, keeping TV channels and the TV guide up to date.

Where have channels Now 70 and Now 80 moved to?   

Now 70 is moving to Channel 75 ands Now 80 is on Channel 76 as of today. 

A loss of coverage outside the Manchester area will be caused by the changes to Now 70s and changes to the Now 80s will result in increased coverage.
