Freesat drops a load of music channels

Early this week, free to air music channel VIVA was dropped on Freesat, to be replaced by MTV Love, a pay TV offering.

Then at the end of January, The Box Plus Network withdrew its presence from Freesat, causing viewers to lose access to channels including 4Music.

Other music channels dropped include The Box, Box Hits, Box Upfront, Kerrang, Kiss, Magic, Clubland, Now 90s and Now 80s.

The changes leave Freesat users with a third fewer music channels than a week ago,

However, the channels may have been dropped by Freesat, but they are still able to be accessed, apart from VIVA, should you still want to watch these channels. You simply have to add them to your Freesat box via “non Freesat Mode” / “STB Mode” using the frequencies below:
