Following the launch of Box Hits, The Box, Kiss, Magic and Kerrang! in December, Freesat has now added 4Music to its channel offering.
This follows recent technical changes to the way 4Music is broadcast on satellite.
The music and entertainment channel carries music in the morning, with comedy and other entertainment shows following in the afternoon and evening. Highlights include The Goldbergs and 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown.
Viewers can now see 4Music on Freesat channel 181*.
Emily Doyle, Content Partnership Manager at Freesat, commented,
“Freesat thrives on bringing our viewers the very best free-to-view entertainment – and 4Music is bursting with brilliant content. Recognising feedback from our customers about wanting to see more music and entertainment channels, this is another example of us working on partnerships which will actively help answer that call.”
Karla Berry, Distribution and Platform Partnerships Leader, Channel 4 says:
“4Music is a valuable asset in our brand portfolio and a key driver in helping us reach young audiences. They love its mix of the best comedy and entertainment, along with the hottest new music videos and biggest chart hits. Not forgetting the great behind the scenes revelations. Free-to-view access is a crucial part of our remit, and we’re delighted that 4Music is now available for Freesat viewers.”
4Music was originally available on Freesat until early 2018, when Channel 4 removed a number of services from the platform.
