Disney's "Daytime" begins testing

SDN have commenced test transmissions of the new non-subscription channel that is being launched by Disney. The channel was provisionally called "Daytime" - and the name has been seen on test broadcasts - however it is thought that Disney are now considering a new name. Digital Spy members have reported seeing the tests during the daytime hours on channel 25, which will be used in the evening and overnight by Top Up TV channel TCM from March 31. The new channel will have its own channel number but will timeshare with the subscription channel, and will not be available in Wales as the space is used by Welsh-language channel S4C2.
