freeview radioIn March 2015, the BBC launched nine local radio stations on Freeview, joining the three that launched in 2014. Due to technical constraints, it has not yet been possible to launch all of the BBC's local radio stations on Freeview. Most TV regions will only get one BBC local radio station, apart from the East of England, which will broadcast two - BBC Radio Norfolk on channel 719 and BBC Radio Cambridgeshire on 722. Check the left-hand column and channels 719, 720, 721 and 722 to see what you can receive. You may have to re-scan for channels to pick up the BBC channel broadcast on Freeview.
