CNN has extended its broadcasting hours on Freeview so it now airs from 7pm through to midnight every day. CNN used to air on Freeview between 9pm and 1am. The move to more favourable broadcast times comes after GemsTV1 (which used to be on Freeview 7pm-9pm daily) left Freeview this month. Channel 84 – home of CNN on Freeview – airs Super Casino gambling from midnight to 2am.
GemsTV1 is no longer on Freeview channel 44. You will need to rescan you box (a full rescan) to remove the channel placeholder. The channel used to air 7pm-9pm daily. Gems TV programming will however now also be shown on Netplay TV on Freeview channel 49 from 4pm to 9pm daily, and Gems TV is still available on channel 43 from 9.45am to 12.45pm daily.
