Channel removals and Smile TV 2 returns

Gaming channels Super Casino and Netplay have been removed Freeview. They were initially removed to make way for the launch of the new Quest channel, which never launched today.

Participation channel Smile TV 2 has returned to Freeview and will broadcast on channel 33 from midnight to 5am every night. Smile TV 2 uses space from Ideal World which will be off-air midnight-5am from now on.

CNN extends Freeview hours

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.

NetPlay TV channel Super Casino now available

Super Casino – the NetPlay TV channel – is now available on Freeview channel 48. The channel available 24 hours a day. Super Casino was originally restricted to only broadcasting on Nuts TV (channel 42). Nuts TV closes down later this month to be replaced with CNN International.
