RT is on Freeview, have you tried plugging a TV aerial into your TV set and re-tuning?

Re: I want rt.com

I know it's on Freeview and it's the only news channel I watch. My question is why doesn't virgin incorporate it, it's been on Sky from day 1. How difficult can it be?

Re: I want rt.com

RT is available Free-to-Air across the whole of Europe on satellite (for which they pay one fee to the satellite operator). Sky & Freesat boxes pick up all the free channels from these satellites (these are not actually part of the Sky service, even though Sky may claim they are). All RT do is pay a nominal fee to Sky and/or Freesat for an EPG number. They otherwise have nothing to do with Sky.
