ABC1 to launch in September

Digital Spy reports Disney's new Freeview channel ABC1 will launch in September. The channel was originally due to launch in "winter 2003" but has been delayed while Disney reconsidered the channel's content. ABC1 will be on air between 06:00 and 18:00, initially time-sharing with part of the Top Up TV subscription service before eventually broadcasting 24 hours. It will launch exclusively on Freeview and will not carry advertisements for the first few months.
