Three music channels pulled from Freesat

Music channels Heat, Kerrang and Smash Hits have been pulled from Freesat at the request of the channel's operator, The Box+ Network.

The music channels appeared on Freesat in April 2013 shortly after coming out of Sky's subscription service and going free-to-air on satellite.

Freesat emphasises that the decision to pull the channels was not theirs. The affected channels continue to be carried on Sky, and sister channels The Box, Kiss and Magic remain listed on the Freesat EPG.

The Box+ Network is a joint venture between Bauer Media and Channel 4.
