Confirmed – ITV4 will be 24 hours on Freeview

We mentioned earlier this week that ITV4 would be broadcasting 24 hours from this month, but it wasn’t confirmed this would include Freeview as well. It can now be confirmed ITV4 will indeed be broadcasting 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – starting 6th February. This is made possible by – as previously speculated – the CITV channel moving to ABC1’s old broadcast space and ITV4 taking the whole of the current slot. Viewers will need to rescan their set top boxes from the 6th February to continue to receive the CITV channel and to make sure all these changes apply okay to their boxes.
