Channel One to close, Challenge to come to Freeview
Sky is closing one pay and one free channel from the portfolio it bought from Virgin TV, because they match channels already provided by Sky.
Bravo and Channel One (which was Virgin 1 and before that FTN) will close.
This means that the Channel One slot on Freeview will be replaced with the quiz show channel Challenge.
Challenge is now in the Freeview guide on 46. If you can't see it yet, please follow these instructions on your set-top box or Freeview TV: My Freeview box has no EPG, is blank on FIVE, ITV3, ITV4, ITV2+1, has no sound or the channel line up is wrong - ukfree.tv.
I just want to add my voice to the general growling discontent. We loose a good channel on freeview and get shit instead.
i thought that competition had to be fair and that there were regulation in place to avoid that kind of despicable behaviour from the big bosses. I believe sky failed to play by the rule with 'Lost' (channel 4).
I thought Virgin wanted to be a finger raised in the face of Murdock, I was wrong then.
