Vodafone is changing TV frequencies – you have to be aware of that

Vodafone standardizes the TV frequencies in the cable network throughout Germany. Step-by-step changes are being made to this end. Ideally, Vodafone users will not notice anything, but in individual cases they have to take action themselves.

Vodafone changes the frequencies of up to 350 TV and radio stations in the cable network. The frequency spectrum, which was previously used differently in different regions, is to be standardized across Germany. Vodafone expects more performance and higher data rates in the cable network. The conversion is to be carried out in stages and completed by mid-2023.

Vodafone customers have to take this into account

Ideally, the customer should not notice anything about the changeover. After changing the frequency, the TV receiver must be searched. According to Vodafone, this is carried out automatically in many cases, mainly with Vodafone’s own end devices. With older devices, the user may have to initiate the channel search himself. Vodafone explains how this works on this support page.

Vodafone recommends its customers not to disconnect their receivers and cable routers from the power supply at the time of the changeover and to check in the morning after the changeover whether all channels can be received as before.
