Sky Arts, the TV channel dedicated to culture, arts and music, becomes available on Freeview and Freesat from today, September 17th.
Sky Arts was created in 2000 and was previously only available for paying subscribers to Sky and other pay-TV companies.
The 24 hour- a -day channel includes in its programming documentaries, movies, operas and more – all related to culture and the arts. They also have a number of shows based around competitions, which may or may not be your “bag”. Not being a Sky customer, I have not experienced the channel before, but I must say that I am naturally suspicious of / resistant to anything which has emanated from the diseased empire of the Murdoch clan.
The channel also has a large library of on-demand content, however this will remain exclusive to NOW TV and Sky subscribers.
On Freeview, you can find SkyArts on channel 11, and on Freesat, on channel 147.
