f4ident2Channel 4 has confirmed the impending return of Film4+1 to Freeview. Film4+1 was available for a short time on Freeview from late 2006 when it reused capacity previously allocated to notorious phone-in channel Quiz Call. It lasted until 19th August 2007, when the channel was removed to make way for Channel 4’s main timeshift service Channel 4+1, which launched on the 20th August 2007.

Film 4+1 has continued in the meantime on cable and satellite platforms.
On Twitter, the broadcaster confirmed that Film4+1 will return to the terrestrial platform “in the summer”. It is unknown where the capacity for the channel will come from.
