I was just checking via pick whether other we're any plans for a pick+1 and I see that other already is this channel!
I love the programmes you show and am gutted when I find I have missed such as 'most haunted' .
It says it can be viewed on freeview, which I have, but I can't seem to get this channel even though I have retuned.

Just some advice wud b gud!
Thanks with regards

Twish G: Sorry, but you seem to have misread the channel details at the top of the page. Pick +1 is available on Sky channel 153. Pick TV is owned by Sky (it is in effect the old Sky Three channel). Personally, I would have thought it fairly unlikely that the Pick +1 channel would come to Freeview anytime soon for a whole host of reasons.

Dave: Because Pick's owners (Sky) aren't prepared to continue to pay for their +1 channel to be broadcast on Freeview.
