From Wikipedia: According to Channel 4, it was created in response to its viewers saying that with so much choice they sometimes missed the best programmes, despite having PVRs and access to on demand services.1 4seven launched with 20 hours of content in the schedule per day. In the 8.00pm and 10.00pm slots the channel broadcasts a repeat of shows from the previous day that have created a critical buzz in newspapers, chatter on social media through Twitter and Facebook and reaction on the overnight log of comments kept by the broadcaster. The 11.00pm slot is used to repeat the programme shown on Channel 4 at 9.00pm, which air again on 4seven at 9.00pm the following day.2 The rest of the programmes on 4seven are reruns of the most popular ones of the week. - link icon read more about 4seven on wikipedia (summary by Clipped).

xander: Yes, the channel is used in peak times (at last from 4th July 2012) to repeat peak time programmes from earlier in the week, but at the same time.

Has anyone got 4Seven on Freeview yet and if so when?, I did a scan a few minutes ago and can still not get it.

I am in the Tyne Tees area and from asking a question on another site have been told that we will not have it on Freeview in our area until after the DSO, but we can receive Freeview and it was only added to Sky after 1.30pm today.

Lee Morris: You won't be getting 4seven on Freeview until switchover. It only exists on the ArqB multiplex and not Mux D.

ArqB has higher capacity than Mux D and 4seven is in the "extra bit".

Hi, Will I be able to get it from the Tomatin Relay Transmitter? It is part of the Rosemarkie Transmitter Group. And currently I only get the basic channels on freeview so will I get any more channels in the future e.g. Dave?

Grant Ross: Sorry, but you won't be able to get 4seven from any relay transmitter.

You won't get any more channels from any relay transmitters - for a full explanation see Will there ever be more services on the Freeview Light transmitters? | - independent free digital TV advice please.
