This is another perfect example of how Freeview allows broadcasters to reach their audiences and we’re pleased to be helping Vintage TV, and channels like it, deliver of a diverse range of content to UK homes. By increasing its reach, Vintage TV will potentially be able to air its content to a broader set of viewers than ever before.”
