Freesat has today welcomed NME TV and Bliss to its lineup of music channels.

NME TV broadcasts interviews, video-led programming and festival coverage from the alternative music scene, while Bliss showcases the biggest artists in contemporary pop.

The channels join a range of existing services on Freesat operated by CSC Media, including Chart Show TV, Flava and The Vault, as well as Pop, Tiny Pop, Kix and PopGirl. CSC also operates the True Movies bouquet of channels.

All of these channel have been free to air for a long time, and are available on most if not all digital satellite receivers, Sky , Freesat and other "generic" receivers. It is just that these two channels now actually appear on the Freesat channel list, and no longer require you to go into non-freesat mode to watch them.
