As of yesterday, 28th June, Vintage TV will no longer be available to view on Freesat channel 505. The channel can still be found on Sky 369, Virgin Media 343 and, from the 1st of July, Freeview 86.

“Regrettably, Vintage TV will not be broadcast via Freesat from the end of June,” says David Pick, Founder and CEO of Vintage TV. “Our goal is to maximise availability for viewers, so this move coincides with a launch on Freeview channel 86, beginning from the 1st of July, which will place Vintage TV in five million more UK homes.”

Programming will continue as usual, with a carefully curated blend of live performances, interviews and themed playlists.  Established in 2010, Vintage TV has grown to be the destination for music lovers. With limited resources available to the channel, the priority is to ensure that as many viewers as possible can continue to tune into Vintage TV, and it is with this in mind that this decision has been made.

Viewers with Freesat set-top box can continue to view Vintage TV by tuning their receiver for other free-to-view channels; for more information on how to do this, please visit the ‘How To View’ page on the Vintage TV website. Programme EPGs can be found on the Vintage TV website and the Vintage TV app. Catch-up for programmes is also available on these platforms; the website address is and the Vintage TV app can be downloaded from all major app stores.

About the author

There’s a lot of music out there - good music. At Essentially Pop our remit is that we cover music that deserves to be heard, with a particular focus on independent artists. That doesn't mean we won't cover your old favourites - rather we hope to give you some new favourites as well.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
