  • In Scotland, on Freeview some BBC radio services do not broadcast at certain times of the day to make room for the BBC Alba TV service. Affected services are marked with ‘*S’ next to the channel number.
  • BBC local radio services on Freeview are region dependent.
  • Although only some satellite radio services are available as part of Freesat, all Sky radio services are free to air and can be added manually. This can be done by switching your Freesat box to manual mode. For more details, consult your equipment installer or instruction manual.
  • Not all stations are available on all platforms. Where a station is unavailable on a particular platform, this is indicated by ‘-‘ or ‘N/A’.
