Channel 4-seven is now in the Freeview EPG in switched-over areas

The placeholder for Channel 4's new catch-up channel, 4-seven is now on the ArqB/COM6 multiplex showing up as channel 47. It does not appear in areas where switchover happens later in the year.

published on UK Free TV

If you do a rescan for channels on your Freeview set-top box or television, you may now find a new channel at position 47 called "Channel 4-seven".

However, this will be only the case if you use on of the main Freeview transmitters that have already gone though digital switchover. So, those in London will not see the channel appear until the 18th April.

This new channel from the Channel 4 Corporation (a not-for-profit public broadcaster) will be something new - for a repeats channel.

Rather than showing the whole of a channel an hour later (as Channel 4+1 does), this new channel will schedule only the top shows from Channel 4 in their original timeslots for the week following their original broadcast on the main channel.

The channel will also appear on Freesat (probably at 127) and other platforms.

for gods sake.
less so called "channels" and more programs
Im sick of being force fed the same tired old *carp* on 27 different frequencies and being told the 10 year old "game show/competition/quiz" is "new"

the entire TV industry is a scam

You can double that number if you have a plus 1 box.
You can also watch it on-line and many programs are also on DVD.

michael: According to Silvercrest SL35T - No teletext - Freeview - Digital Spy Forums that box doesn't support MHEG-5, so no interactive content at all.
