A new TV channel dedicated to showcasing programmes about the environment, climate change and sustainability launches in the UK at 7pm on Thursday 25th August 2022.
Ahead of its launch, Earthx TV is now available on Freeview channel 79. From tomorrow, Earthx TV will also be available on Sky satellite channel 180 across the UK. On Sky, the channel will broadcast in HD only. Other platforms are yet to be confirmed.
The launch of its service in the UK marks an important milestone for the Texas-based EarthX, which last year indicated it wanted to develop Earthx TV into a “globally recognised entertainment network catering to audiences increasing attuned to issues affecting our planet.”
Its first set of schedules indicate the channel will offer something very different from existing free-to-air TV channels in the UK.
Ahead of the official launch, viewers can see a countdown clock.
