Rd: True Movies (temporarily rebranded as True Christmas) is broadcast alongside local TV channels, so it will only be available to you on Freeview if you can receive a local TV station on channel 7 or 8.

Terri HIll: As per my reply above, True Movies shares capacity with Pop Max, so it won't be able to extend its hours on Freeview unless Pop Max reduces its hours, or it moved to different capacity (the only spare capacity available 24/7 currently is on COM8 which has limited coverage, unless Sony decide to swap some of their other channels around).

We live in the Portsmouth area and receive True Christmas via Freeview. However, adverts say it's available during the day - for us it doesn't start until 9pm. Why ? Last year we had no problems. Is broadcasting not starting until later in our area?

PhilW, sue thornhi & Tracey Allin: True Movies is broadcast on Freeview from 9pm-5am as it shares capacity with Pop Max which broadcasts from 5am-9pm. This is down to the broadcaster (Sony) who own both channels.

Why is true Christmas only available after 21:00hrs -all this advertising for this Chanel and it's a total waste. All other years it's been on from early morning until late at night.
