Religious channel Daystar Television has launched on the Freeview digital-terrestrial platform in the UK on a 24-hour basis.
Daystar is being broadcast on the HD multiplex provided by transmission services provider Arqiva in MPEG-4 and DVB-T2. The channel has been available as a part-time service since 2011.
Daystar will also be available on the YouView platform used by BT Vision and TalkTalk TV.
“We are excited about this new expansion. Daystar will now be available to Freeview viewers within the broadcast coverage of Arqiva’s new HD multiplex, which includes approximately 72% of the United Kingdom’s population,” said Marcus Lamb, president and CEO of Daystar Television Network.
““We are delighted to welcome Daystar TV to the Freeview platform. Arqiva is committed to broadcasting a variety of content to offer viewers the best possible channel and programme choices – Daystar TV is a great addition,” said Charles Constable, managing director of Digital Platforms at Arqiva.
