FilmFour to launch on Freeview

FilmFour is to launch on Freeview in July, and will also be available free to all Sky and cable customers. The channel will join E4 and More4 on Freeview, broadcasting between 15:00 and 03:00 daily. To compensate for lost subscriptions, films will be interrupted by commercial breaks, but the channel will not have a "DOG" (on-screen logo). In other news, BBC Parliament has moved from channel 85 to 81.
