UE55HU7500 in UK thinks it’s in France

Hi. I’ve bought a 55” Samsung UE55HU7500 and I can’t get it tuned with UK FreeView channels. The auto scan picks up 95 or so channels but the numbering in the channel list starts at 800.
I tried doing a factory reset and in the setup, it only offers me France when asking “What country are you in?”

When auto tuning , the list of sources includes “Fransat”. 
The model number is UE55HU7500L. It has the latest firmware 1310.

I’ve changed the Smart TV region to UK, and the Channel Settings country to UK, but the channel list still doesn’t pick up the regular FreeView channel numbering.

How can I get the tv to recognise that it’s in the UK?

Thanks in advance....

Freeview is not supported. See https://www.lcd-compare.com/televiseur-SAMUE55HU7500-SAMSUNG-UE55HU7500.htm
You'll need a Freeview box.

Thanks for the link - however, it is picking up the Freeview channels but not putting them against the regular "start at 101" channel numbers. This link says that is also Freeview HD ready.

I'm hoping that it's just a factory setting or something that I can change?

I must admit I can't see Freeview on there. I can only assume in France different channel numbers are associated with Freeview frequencies?
