Heart joins Freesat platform

Global Radio's Heart network is joining the subscription-free satellite TV service Freesat.

It joins over 140 channels on the platform, but only a handful of radio stations including Jazz FM, Planet Rock, Choice FM and all BBC national networks.

Heart will be available on channel 733 and reach a potential 1.5 million homes with the service.

Freesat’s Head of Channels, Mark Briggs said, “I’m extremely pleased to be adding Heart to the Freesat EPG. Heart is a great addition to our radio genre and means that our 1.5 million customers can now enjoy this hugely popular radio service right across the UK. Research shows that listening to radio through television is increasingly significant. Freesat allows listeners to enjoy Heart in fantastic quality via their TV or home entertainment system.”

Heart’s Group Programme Director Luis Clark said: “Bringing Heart to Freesat means that we are able to extend our reach even further across the UK, offering another platform for our audience to enjoy the brand. We’re delighted that Freesat’s million and a half customers around the UK will now be able to listen via Freesat’s digital TV service.”
