    Guessing this must be on COM 7 or COM 8. If you can't get these MUX you are likely to not be able to view.

    Thanks to Barry at MyHumax. PBS America is on Com 8.

    Official press releases: Freeview: PBS America launches on Freeview | Freeview and Arqiva: PBS America launches on Freeview

    But Freeview are still to update their channel list (as of 1808 14-12-17) to include it, and their 'channels at your address' link doesn't say what mux carries it. {Nor do any of the press releases}

    Don't forget it's now available on Freeview 94, Freesat 155, Virgin Media 276 and Sky channel 534 (plus ipTV streaming via Amazon UK). 544 x 576 SD on Freeview and freesat/sky - Virgin probably the same?

    Interesting programme line up, but that's one annoying station logo! :-/

    Don't knock it until you have seen it. Much of the content is historic and dates back to pre-digital and TBH it's can be very interesting.

    I have it on satellite and sometimes watch it when there's not much of interest on the main channels.

    I searched high and low for the MUX info. I don't have access to Com 7 or Com 8. Barry does have COM 7 and 8 and kindly re-tuned a FVP-5000T to determine the carrier frequency for his South West main power transmitter.

    Considering the number of people who can't get the temporary low power Com 7 and 8, not to mention this fact seems somewhat remiss.

    I can confirm it's on Com 8 from the Sutton Coldfield transmitter too.

    Same on Winter Hill; a quick manual tune of Ch 34 found it easily enough.
