Freesat users have lost access to craft and hobby channel Craft Extra, as owner Hochanda pulls the plug.
Craft Extra was available on Freesat channel 817 until Tuesday morning, when the channel was removed from the channel list.
Home to daily tips and tricks from Create & Craft’s team, with a dedicated strand of programmes unique to the channel, the service continues to viewers on Sky channel 680.
Craft Extra is also still available via a live stream on platforms including the Create & Craft website and YouTube. Viewers with a Freeview Play TV or box can press red on channel 85 to access Craft Extra via their internet connection.
The main Create & Craft channel continues on Freesat channel 813 and is unaffected by the changes at its sister channel.
Hochanda originally ended up with two Freesat slots after its acquisition of Create & Craft last year.
