Heart Radio on Freesat from today
Today is a busy day for Freesat, not just ITV1+1 but a popular radio network joins the service.
Heart Radio (known for "More Music Variety") has become one of the UK's strongest national radio brands - reaching nearly 8 million people every week - and has a host of well-known personalities including Toby Anstis, Jason Donovan and Emma Bunton.
From today, Freesat is making Heart available on Channel 733.
Freesat's Head of Channels, Mark Briggs said, "I'm extremely pleased to be adding Heart to the Freesat EPG. Heart is a great addition to our radio genre and means that our 1.5 million customers can now enjoy this hugely popular radio service right across the UK. Research shows that listening to radio through television is increasingly significant. Freesat allows listeners to enjoy Heart in fantastic quality via their TV or home entertainment system."
Heart's Luis Clark said: "Bringing Heart to Freesat means that we are able to extend our reach even further across the UK, offering another platform for our audience to enjoy the brand. We're delighted that Freesat's million and a half customers around the UK will now be able to listen via Freesat's digital TV service.!"
Heart will automatically be added to the Freesat service via customers' TVs or digital boxes, meaning listeners can start enjoying Heart's 'More Music Variety' without manually retuning their channel line-up.
