Babestation has launched on channel 42. You may need to rescan your Freeview box to pick it up. It’s on air 1am to 6am daily. Also, SmileTV3 has launched on channel 37, which airs midnight to 8am daily. Other changes from earlier this week include Big Deal moving to channel 32 (10pm to 5am daily), SmileTV1 closing, new Teletext text service Mobilizer launching on channel 109 and Virgin1 +1 reducing their hours to 6pm to 1am.
Smile TV 2 has now launched on Freeview. It broadcasts from 10am to 5pm, and 9pm to 5am.
Smile TV 2 has appeared on the Freeview EPG on channel 46. It’s not known what hours it will be broadcasting or what it will be broadcasting but as Smile TV broadcasts “babe” call-in shows, then I would assume Smile TV 2 will be showing similar programming. More news as we get it.
Smile TV has changed its broadcast hours on Freeview to 3am-7am (was 1am-6am) to make way for the new UKTV channel launching in a couple of weeks (Dave). UKTV History will also have it’s hours cut to 7am-6pm on Freeview when Dave launches. Also, if you haven’t done so already, you will need to rescan your set top box to continue listening to Heat and Smash Hits (radio stations) on Freeview, as they swapped multiplexes. You will also need to rescan later this month when the BBC Radio stations change multiplexes.
Sumo TV – a retro channel – is now timesharing with Smile TV. Sumo TV is broadcast on Smile TV between 4am and 5am.
