Freesat Update – three music channels removed from Freesat
Music channels Heat, Kerrang and Smash Hits have been removed from Freesat, apparently at the request of the channel’s operator, The Box+ Network.
The music channels appeared on Freesat in April 2013 shortly after coming out of Sky’s subscription service and going free-to-air on satellite.
Freesat emphasises that the decision to pull the channels was not theirs.
The affected channels continue to be carried on Sky, and sister channels The Box and Magic remain listed on the Freesat EPG.
