Rishtey Cineplex has left Freeview

Rishtey Cineplex was available on Freeview channel 88, and was only added to the digital terrestrial TV platform at the beginning of the year. Transmissions ceased during Friday 30th June.

Like sister channel, Rishtey, which continues to broadcast on Freeview channel 77, Cineplex required a Freeview HD or Freeview Play compatible device to receive the channel. Up to 3/4 of UK households lived within range of the signal.

It is the second channel to be removed from the Freeview platform in as many weeks and comes ahead of a major reshuffle of Freeview channel numbers on the 2nd August 2017.

The channel continues to broadcast on satellite on both Sky and Freesat.
