UKTV is to make three of its most popular channels available free-to-air over Freesat.
The broadcaster is adding Yesterday, Drama and Really to the subscription-free service.
UKTV’s CEO Darren Childs said, “We work hard to secure platform deals that give more people our channels, and ultimately grow UKTV’s footprint. Freesat viewers will be able to watch gripping history shows on Yesterday, some of Britain’s finest, critically acclaimed drama content on Drama, and unbelievable real life stories on Really. As UKTV continues to invest heavily in new shows, there’s never been a better time to have access to our channels.”
The channels will launch on the service later this month.
