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 knew Channel was going but didn't know it was going to be today and am not happy that I'm not getting my Star Trek fix! I'm physically not able to get Virgin (it would cost £12,000 to put the cables into the house) and due to restrictions on the property can't get Sky so have to make do with BT Vision.
