Bulletin: Channel changes and satellite signals

A few more details about forthcoming channel changes have come to light in the past week. BBC News 24 will be re-named BBC News on Monday 21 April, when all the Corporation’s news programmes will receive updated titles and sets. The following Monday (April 28), Five Life will become Fiver: the channel is already running on-screen promotions. In other news, the launch of Freesat appears to be drawing ever closer. Channel 4 began broadcasting in the clear earlier this week, and rumours suggest the service could start as early as the first-half of next month.
