freeviewITV, Channel 4, Channel Five and Disney are among the broadcasters vying to launch a new channel this Spring on Freeview.
Crown Castle, one of the three partners in the digital terrestrial service, is freeing up some of its multiplex space to enable a new channel to launch as soon as April.

Crown owns two of the six multiplexes used to transmit Freeview and has said that technology developments are making it possible to squeeze in an extra channel alongside the existing 31 services. ITV, which is hoping to launch ITV4 this year, is reported to be interested along with a host of other broadcasters.
