Freeview timeshares

Not all television channels on Freeview broadcast 24 hours a day, so they share capacity with other services. This page shows how they all fit together. Note that channels' actual schedules may differ from the hours shown: for example, CBeebies comes on air at 5.30am but programmes don't start until 6am.
