The new TV channel shows nostalgic content from across the decades with a programme line-up including legendary concerts and musicians, documentaries from around the world and films featuring well-known actors.
That’s TV Gold will complement sister channel, That’s TV, which has been available on Freeview since November 2014 and has become one of the UK’s most popular music-based channels, according to the operator. The That’s TV network currently broadcasts in 20 metro-regions of the UK on Freeview channel 7/8.
That’s TV Gold will broadcast 24 hours per day on Sky (channel 187) and on Freeview (channel 91). The channel will provide substantial Freeview coverage across the UK where That’s TV is not currently available, including London, East and West Midlands, North East England, South West England and Northern Ireland.
The new service will also be available to viewers across the UK with a suitable internet-connected Freeview television (channel 264).
“The demand for nostalgic music and entertainment content has never been higher than it has over the past year. We have seen a surge in popularity for music from yesteryear and we are delighted to bring That’s TV Gold to millions of households across the UK to help meet this demand,” said That’s TV Gold Chief Executive Dan Cass. “That’s TV Gold will celebrate and commemorate the music, people, popular culture and events of the last 7 decades 7 days a week.”
