Re: Sky Arts - will it move to Mixit TV in September?

it might or it might not, Virgin agree carriage deals with the broadcasters as to what's beneficial to both parties just because something is on freeview doesn't mean it'll be on Mixit on Virgin, They may have to pay Virgin to be on that pack rather than receive money from them Virgin

As of September 17, Sky Arts will be available on Freeview channel 11, where it replaces Pick, Sky’s entertainment channel that came to prominence through its Premier League coverage.

Pick moves to channel 34.

Re: Sky Arts - will it move to Mixit TV in September?

If Sky decides it will be FTA on all platforms then it will become available to all customers. However, I expect the HD version to remain behind a paywall, as Sky News HD does at present.

Virgin BB TV Landline. Freeview/Freesat HD, Virgin Mobile, Tesco Mobile. Cable customer since 1993
