Filmfour going "free to air"

  realist 20:39 09 Feb 2006

Subscription film channel Filmfour to be relaunched "free to air" to all digital viewrs from July 2006

Presumably, this will include only Freeview and Sky subs; Freesat customers don't get E4 or More4, so I won't expect to see FilmFour either.

Mentions nothing of Freesat, which may mean that it won't be available, given that the other two aren't. Although Freesat gets quite a few channels that Freeview does not, it's rubbish for the Channel 4 stuff.

Yay, I can finally get FilmFour!

Anything to beat Mr Murdoch's Sky.
I'm all in favour of anything that's free. Roll on July.

Freesat is, as the name suggests, free. Still Sky. It's not all bad!

Then again, as I mentioned above, I have to miss out on E4 and More4, so no West Wing!

Have NTL so will be getting Film Four , great

To ade.h , More4 gives me the West Wing or rather
More4 +1 will do in 20 mins.

But they have skipped a whole series , wot happened
to Barletts daughter ????? ( was kidnapped??)

Yes, I know. Hence my comment.

It beats me why More4 is not available on Freesat, as it is supposed to match Freeview, plus add extra channels that Freeview misses.

Unfortunately, I have no choice but to use Sky; I live in an area with virtually no terrestrial reception and no cable services either.

I may eventually bite the subscription bullet.

Bartlett's daughter escaped with the help of Jack Bauer and went to work in the Fisher funeral home, then moved to LA and married Vick Macky. I'd had a couple of beers when I watched it so some of the detail may be wrong.

Fazza8 thanks for the laugh, first time i read it , you fooled me !

I find the West Wing one of the few American progs which requires some attention, so missing an entire series has given me a headache.
