Viacom18 have launched the first Asian HD channel on the Freeview platform in the UK. Colors HD only recently launched in the UK on the Sky platform, is now expected to extend its reach being on Freeview HD.
The general entertainment channel is now available on channel 114, reaching around 3/4 of UK households who currently live in an area covered by the full set of Freeview HD channels.
