boxMusic channels Heat, Kerrang and Smash Hits have been removed from the Freesat platform at the request of the channel’s operator, Box+ (Bauer Media/ Channel 4).
The music channels first appeared on Freesat in April 2013 shortly after abandoning Sky’s subscription service and going free-to-air on satellite.
Freesat confirmed that the decision to remove the channels was made by Box+.

The three channels continue to be carried on the Sky platform, while two other Box+ channels The Box and Magic remain listed on the Freesat EPG.
The Box+ Network is a joint venture between Bauer Media and Channel 4.
