[ARCHIVE] Absolute Radio 70s now live on Sky

This is an archived article from 2015, kept online for reference purposes. It was announced that Absolute Radio 70s would be removed from Sky in May 2018.




Absolute Radio 70s has gone live today on Sky, where listeners can tune in to the station dedicated to 1970s music on Sky channel 0188, where it has replaced RNIB Insight Radio.

The launch on Sky means that station is available for the first time nationally without the need for an internet connection, boosting the station's reach across the UK. Absolute Radio 70s is currently only available in London via DAB digital radio.

Absolute Radio 70s is currently not on the Freesat channel list, but listeners with a Freesat box or generic free-to-air satellite receiver can access the station using the following manual tuning parameters, which will also enable reception of Absolute Radio 90s and Absolute Classic Rock, which are also not currently carried on the Freesat Electronic Programme Guide:
