Thank you for using Just Answer my name is Carl and I will help with your question.

I have had a look and I do not think it is possible for what I have read the tv was released for the Australian market and the tuner is set for the Australian frequency's.

You might be able to change the main input board for a uk version and use it to receive freeview but I feel a freeview box would be a cheaper option.

I hope this helps.

Thought there might be a firmware update out there as the same tv is sold here in UK?

I would have thought the same or a service menu setting but from what I have read the tuner in the tv is only suitable for Australia.
