Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of TV services available on digital terrestrial, satellite, internet streaming and cable systems in the United Kingdom. Some channels have a "timeshift" service, i.e. the same programming (and usually advertisements as well) broadcast one or two hours later to give viewers another chance to catch a favourite programme. These channels are shown underneath the original channel number. Channels shown in bright green are available without a subscription, and are therefore free-to-air. Those which are in a paler green can only be accessed via a viewing card.
