CNN International will begin broadcasts on Freeview from January next year, when it replaces Nuts TV. The channel will occupy the same broadcast hours – 21:00 to 01:00 daily – but is likely to be issued with a new channel number. Rumours that CNN would be launching a service on Freeview started before the platform had officially launched, when it was reported that the channel would be a part of the launch line-up. Frequent changes to the Turner Broadcasting slot on multiplex A have seen the news channel pop up regularly in reports of new channels. Nuts TV will cease broadcasting on satellite as well as Freeview and become a "dedicated broadband and mobile channel"/fade into obscurity.
