Andrew Neil’s new British news channel GB News is gradually approaching its launch.
On 28 April, it broadcast a “test signal” on channel 236 of Freeview and YouView TV services, tweeting “we’re hard at work building Britain’s New Channel.
And now GB News has confirmed it has been allocated a Freesat channel number.
The channel will appear on Freesat channel 216 when it launches, behind all existing news channels already listed on Freesat.
Sky and Virgin Media channel numbers will be confirmed closer to the launch date.
