4Music launches on Freeview

4Music, the new channel from Channel 4 has launched on Freeview channel 18. 4Music is C4's fifth channel, and replaces The Hits which closed this morning. Unlike it's predecessor, the schedule of 4Music is dominated by music-related programming rather than music videos: tonight, it will broadcast the "music task" live from Big Brother house, for example.
