A+E Networks UK has extended distribution of its new free-to-air channel Blaze, following a deal with subscription-free satellite TV platform Freesat.
Blaze is now available to the 1.9 million Freesat homes on channel number 162. The announcement came six weeks after the global debut of the new entertainment brand in the UK on Freeview (Channel 83), Sky (Channel 565) and as a TV Everywhere service.
Heather Jones, UK General Manager, A+E Networks, said: “We are very excited to bring Blaze to a further 1.9 million homes via Freesat. We are delighted with how audiences are embracing the array of shows on Blaze, with much of our content free-to-air exclusives.
Blaze offers viewers a range of premiere episodes of popular shows such as Pawn Stars, Mountain Men, and American Restoration, as well as Forged In Fire, the epic blade making competition series.
