Freeview Channel Updates: September 2013

Viewers in Manchester have access to another music channel with the launch of Global Radio's Heart TV on Freeview channel 62. The channel launch comes before the expected change of regional radio station Real Radio to Heart, subject to regulatory approval.

Two text services operated by BoxBeat Media: Kiss Me TV and Proud Dating take channels 207 and 208, but streaming channel God TV loses its slot on 235.
