Fox has announced it’s launching a new channel on Freeview, the UK’s hugely popular free to air TV platform.
The broadcaster already operates a number of successful pay-TV channels, including FOX, National Geographic Channel and Nat Geo WILD, in the UK. It will bolster this line-up with YourTV, which is “primarily aimed” at female audiences.
Launching on 1st October, the channel will broadcast from 7am until 3am and bring viewers the UK premiere of Corrupt Crimes, a new series investigating recent crime stories, as well as U.S. legal drama Shark in which James Woods plays a hot-shot lawyer who leaves his lucrative career as a defender of rich criminals to join the public prosecution under the District Attorney (D.A.).
Other shows confirmed for the channel’s launch on October 1st include Baking Good, Baking Bad and Don’t Tell the Bride.
Jeff Ford, Managing Director FOX International Channels UK, commented: “I am thrilled to announce the launch of YourTV, our first Free To Air channel and exciting next step in the evolution of our UK brand portfolio.
“Providing a daily treat of compelling scripted and unscripted series for viewers, YourTV is a fresh new destination for entertainment.”
