Additional DTT Slot Goes to UKTV


LONDON: The British multichannel provider UKTV has secured a fourth DTT channel slot, which, for now, will be occupied by a catch-up service for Dave.

Dave Ja Vu, which provides catch-up opportunities for the entertainment channel Dave, will hold the Freeview channel 25 space for a limited time starting in 2013. The programming on Dave Ja Vu will include the original commission Red Dwarf X, which has become the highest rating program of the year.

UKTV is still firming up permanent plans for the space.
