Now Thats What I Call Music

Andrea: The engineer is correct. The NOW broadcaster switched its Freeview channels around, so NOW 70s has the UK-wide slot and NOW 80s got the Manchester local slot. The change happened in the last few days, so your London friend has lost it since you were last in touch with them.

If you retune, you should get NOW 70s on channel 76. As neither free TV or subscription TV can guarantee the continuation of any channel, I would suggest avoiding monthly subscriptions as music video channels have been closing as younger viewers watch them online.

It's possible NOW 80s continues to be availabe as a free-to-air satellite channel, but as it is not on Freesat it requires to be manually tuned which is a bit technical for some viewers.
