Satellite Update: Music Channel changes

Changes to music channels
SATELLITE UPDATE  A few changes are taking place to music channels on satellite in the coming days.

AATW is launching a new pop music channel on Wednesday 27th. Planet Pop replaces Massive R&B. The channel will be live on Sky channel 370 and Freesat channel 511.

Meanwhile, Channel AKA is moving on Sky to channel 385, making way for Planet Pop on channel 370. There are no changes to the service on Freesat.

Viacom's UK Freeview channel, VIVA has gone free-to-air on Astra 2A. The channel showcases content from MTV, VH1, Comedy Central and Nickelodeon. It's children's strand of programmes is the centre of recent reports that Viacom is considering a separate free-to-air children's channel on Freeview.

Freesat programme data has been spotted on VIVA's satellite feed, indicating that the channel is likely to make an imminent appearance on Freesat. There has been no official announcement to date from either Viacom or Freesat on the matter, but Freesat data appearing is usually a give away sign of a channel launch. In the meantime, the channel can be accessed in non-Freesat mode on Freesat receivers or via generic free-to-air satellite boxes.
