Travelxp now live on Freeview


Global travel channel Travelxp has commenced broadcasting today on Freeview and YouView, but not all viewers will be able to access the channel.

The UK version of the channel offers a 24 hour diet of travel documentaries, with opening day programmes including a trip to Taiwan in Best from the Rest at 8pm and 11pm, a feature on UNESCO site Ha Long Bay at 8:15pm and 11:15pm and a travelogue from the Czech Republic town of Kutna Hora in Xplore Czech Republic at 6 and 9pm.

Broadcast in standard definition on Freeview channel 98,the channel has limited coverage and availability. Viewers will require a Freeview HD or Freeview Play compatible device. Only viewers currently able to receive BBC News HD on channel 107 will be able to add Travelxp to their channel list, as the new service broadcasts on the same digital multiplex, reaching around 3/4 of UK households.

The channel will also be shown on devices that piggyback on the Freeview signal: In YouView households - e.g. for viewers with BT TV, TalkTalk TV and Plusnet TV - the channel can also be found on channel 98, subject to local Freeview coverage.

EE TV users will also be able to access the channel on 98 in those areas where the full set of national Freeview channels is broadcast.
