UKTV-owned lifestyle channel Really will make its Freeview debut on the 2nd August.
The channel – currently only available on Sky and Virgin Media – will be on Freeview channel 20 between 8am GMT and 2am GMT daily.
Really will replace Dave timeshift channel Dave Ja Vu on Freeview.
Dave Ja Vu will continue to broadcast as normal on other TV platforms.
As planned, Dave +1 has rebranded as Dave Ja Vu. In a press release from UKTV they say “Dave ja vu will replace Dave +1 on all platforms… and so is available to view in 17.5 million homes nationwide via Freeview, Sky Digital and Virgin Cable. Also in the press release, Dave’s Channel Head Steve North says “renaming our +1 service Dave ja vu will help bolster the already successful Dave brand further while appealing to our target audience of 16-34 year old male viewers, who are sure to get the joke”. Freeview customers may need to carry out a rescan on their box to pick up the new channel name. Dave and Dave Ja Vu are available on Freeview, Virgin Media and Sky.
Those crazy cats at UKTV have been at it again – Dave +1 will rebrand as Dave Ja Vu (like deja vu – get it?) tomorrow. You will need to rescan your Freeview box to pick up the new channel name tomorrow. Virgin Media customers will see the change happen automatically.
