The music channel ends its Freeview service, continuing on Sky and Virgin only.
Now 70s has closed its Freeview outlet on channel 78 at the end of a short lived carriage period on the digital terrestrial TV platform that started in February.
The UK’s only music channel dedicated to 1970s music was available daily until 10pm, and overnight as a streamed service on compatible Freeview devices.
The service has been pulled without any replacement as a result of a commercial decision by the broadcaster, which was described on its social media feed as a “lockdown treat”, despite the channel going on air long before anyone was thinking about lockdowns.
Sister channel Now 80s continues on Freeview channel 83 in some parts of the UK, while Now 90s – which also had a brief stint on national Freeview – continues in the Manchester area only on channel 84. Now 90s is also available via Channelbox on channel 271.
