The rumoured launch date for CNN International on Freeview is the 16th January, as it looks likely Nuts TV will close down on Sky and Freeview on the 15th January. CNN International looks set to air from 9pm-1am on Freeview as this will use the same timeslot Nuts TV currently uses. However, the channel called “GEMSTV1” could leave Freeview which would free up 7pm-9pm as well – meaning CNN could run from 7pm through to 1am every night. It’s rumoured CNN International might actually have a 24 hour slot on Freeview, but this hasn’t been clarified by anyone yet. More news on CNN’s Freeview launch as we get it.
