Children's channel given licence to Pop up on Freeview

Children's channel POP, operated by CSC Media, has become the latest channel to be given an Ofcom licence for transmission on the digital terrestrial television (DTT) platform, the home of Freeview.

CSC Media operates 19 channels in the UK, including True Movies, True Entertainment, Chart Show TV, Buz Muzik and POP's sister channels POP Girl and Tiny POP. It has recently started to roll out its channels in the Republic of Ireland and across Africa.

True Entertainment launched on Freeview (except in Wales) in August 2013, just days after Ofcom issued a DTPS licence - the type of licence required to broadcast on Freeview. POP is already available on Sky and Freesat.

CSC Media teases that their channels "are available on Sky, Virgin Media, Freesat and increasingly, on Freeview."

There's been no official word on when POP might be popping up on Freeview just yet...
