If you have Freeview and want a little more but don’t want to splurge on Sky or Cable, VuTV is here for you. A happy middle ground is offered by VuTV in a simple to set up way. All you need to do it sign up for £6.99 a month then watch the extra content all via channel 238 on your current net-connected Freeview set-up.

VuTV will offer premium channels including Comedy Central, MTV, CNN, Lifetime, History, H2, Crime & Investigation Network, Nickelodeon, Nicktoons, Nick Jr., Cartoon Network, Boomerang and Cartoonito.

All you need is a Freeview TV or box that’s connected to the internet. The extra channels will then all be accessible via channel 238 via your normal TV and remote.

Dan Finch, director of VuTV, says: "Today is very exciting as it heralds the launch of VuTV on Freeview, giving consumers the choice of more channels through their existing Connected TV and remote control, all delivered over the internet. VuTV will become the home of great value, premium channels on your TV set."

VuTV launches on Freeview this autumn. There will be no long-term contract obligations.
