Putting aside a mention on a certain forum of the Travel Channel launching on freesat this month, we can confirm this information is true and the launch is likely to take place in the last week of March.
The Travel Chanel presents a unique perspective on the travel experience. Programmes transport viewers around the globe, from luxury getaways and culinary quests, from backpacking adventures to epic journeys. Travel Channel broadcasts to 130 countries across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia Pacific 24 hours a day in 21 languages. The channel’s core programming includes, Off Limits, Bizarre Foods America, Destination Weddings hosted by Miss Universe Malaysia 2011 Deborah Henry, Globe Trekker, Bert the Conqueror, and World’s Greatest Motorcycle Rides.
We put this rumour of launch to freesat but received the standard response:
We don’t comment about channels that may be joining Freesat. However, we are very excited about those with whom we are currently in talks. There are some big brands and great services that will make Freesat even better; all available subscription free.
Despite this, we have a solid source within another part of the industry that has finally confirmed this to us and like many others, look forward to welcoming the Travel Channel to freesat.
