The rumour is confirmed, following the lifting of 4Music’s encryption earlier this week; the popular music channel launches on Freesat, channel 509.
4Music has been long awaited and demanded by Freesat customers (since the launch of Freesat back in 2008), so it is great to finally see it break from encryption and become available to all (and one less channel Freeview has that we don’t!)
Matt Rennie, Managing Director at The Box Plus Network, said:
We’re pretty excited to bring our leading youth channel 4Music into Freesat homes, offering up great music, comedy, reality and entertainment shows. It’s particularly good timing just days before our UK premiere of The Grammys.
