Rural TV launching on Sky

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

Rural Media has come to an agreement with BSkyB to launch Rural TV on the Sky TV network. It will also be launching on Freesat later on in the month.

For Rural TV, this will give it access for the first time to the millions of Sky subscribers in the UK.

The channel covers everything that the rural communities require, such as crossing borders with farming, equine, rural lifestyle, and traditional country music entertainment programs.

This means Country Channel TV (CCTV) which is the main source of local TV of this nature will be providing two hours of programming on Rural TV and short pieces dedicated to the subjects of farming, equestrian, country pursuits, and country kaleidoscope.

CCTV will be providing a total of fifty six hours worth of programming on a weekly basis.

  13. Rural TV say they’ll return on June 14th, once they’ve made new transmission arrangements - which makes me wonder if they’re somehow affected by this: http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/thereporters/jonathanamos/2010/05/zombie-sat-and-the-clever-orbital-dance.shtml
