Film4, the free to air movie channel owned by Channel 4, is to relaunch its +1 variant on Freeview.
The channel was previously available on Freeview but was dropped in August 2007 to make way for Channel 4+1 but has continued to be broadcast on Sky, Virgin and Freesat services.
News of the channel’s return was posted on the official Film4 Twitter account.
The channel will launch “in the Summer” and will be available via Freeview and YouView set top boxes.
A precise launch date will be announced later in the year.
