COLORS HD is on the Freeview com8 multiplex.

COLORS HD, along with others, has been wrongly categorised on this page as "High definition shopping"

BSkyB service descriptions:

COLORS HD: "COLORS - A Hindi general entertainment channel showing unforgettable dramas, reality shows and movies that provide entertainment for everyone."

Record TV HD: "The best of Brazilian TV - Broadcasting in Portuguese, here you will find family entertainment, documentaries, talk shows, soap operas, series, news, sports, reality shows & Christian content."

DAYSTAR HD: "Daystar brings you family friendly, faith based, multicultural programming including Emmy Award winning original programmes, live events, music and the most requested international Ministry programmes"

&tv HD: "&tv HD is a new Hindi GEC showcasing a diverse and dynamic mix of relatable fiction, high voltage non-fiction, marquee events and blockbuster movies."


&tv HD should be removed from ukfree.tv as it was scrambled on the 1st August.

Hafizur Meah:

You should find it on Logical Channel Number 114 if your TV set is a Freeview HD type (not just 'HD Ready'). The other requirement is that the transmitter you are using carries COM8 - not all do.
