Changes in TV channels

A new licence period for the terrestrial TV network begins on 17 May 2017. The majority of the current TV channels in the terrestrial network will continue to be available in the new licence period. Some channels will be moved from one multiplex to another causing their broadcasting frequencies to change. This means that TV viewers have to run a channel search on their TV set. The coverage areas of some channels will change, which means that some viewers will receive fewer channels than before.

For more information on the changes, visit Digita's website. (in Finnish)

FICORA's customer information line helps consumers in channel search as the new licence period for the terrestrial TV network begins. You can contact the customer information line by dialling +358 295 390 280 (local network fee). It advises consumers for three days from Wednesday, 17 May to Friday, 19 May 2017 between 14.00 and 19.00.

Most TV sets search channels automatically when the search is started. In some cases, the factory settings have to be restored before the channel search can be performed. You can find instructions for performing a channel search on your the TV set in the TV manual or on websites of most importers/manufacturers.

If the TV set does search channels or update the channel list automatically, the channels must be searched manually. If you encounter any problems with the channel search, call FICORA's customer information line.
