Some Finns will get fewer terrestrial TV channels from May

Thursday 13 April 2017 | 11:47 CET | News
The new licence period for the terrestrial TV network starting on 17 May 2017 will change the channel selection as some move to new broadcasting frequencies, according to regulator Ficora. This means that television viewers must perform a new channel search. The changes will affect coverage areas, and some of the viewers will receive fewer channels than before.
