UKTV today announced it has taken a new free-to-air slot and revealed plans to move lifestyle channel Home.
Home is the UK’s only television channel dedicated to inspirational home and gardens programming.
“Moving Home in to free-to-air households gives a greater reach to our channel, offering more viewers the opportunity to watch our great roster of much-loved shows fronted by big name talent,” comments Emma Ayech, general manager, Home. “We’re looking forward to welcoming new audiences to our Home.”
Home has been in pay-TV since 2009, when it replaced UKTV Style. Home’s move brings UKTV’s roster of channels in free to six, with the channel joining Dave, Dave Ja Vu, Drama, Really and Yesterday.
