IN BRIEF Discovery-owned pay TV channel TLC is to launch a new 'staggercast' channel in September.
The channel, called TLC+2, will offer viewers a chance to watch TLC programmes two hours later and is scheduled to become BARB reported from Monday 16th September 2013. The current female-orientated TLC service launched in the UK on the 30th April 2013 on pay TV platforms, including the YouView TalkTalk service and already offers a +1 channel on Sky and Virgin Media.
It is not yet confirmed where the channel will appear on Sky's EPG or if it will be available on other digital platforms. +2 channels are often used to hold a channel slot on Sky until the owners are ready to launch a new service, due to restrictions in place limiting new standard definition channel launches on the platform.
