Arqiva, Talking Pictures TV extend partnership

August 22, 2018

Arqiva, the UK communications infrastructure and media services company, has announced the renewal of its partnership with British vintage film and television channel, Talking Pictures TV, ensuring its exclusive line of nostalgic films and entertainment will remain on the Freeview platform until at least 2022.

The family-run channel will also mark its third anniversary on the Freeview platform in September, after first launching via Arqiva’s T2 HD multiplex in September 2015.

Mike Finchen, Director, DTT at Arqiva, said: “The extended contract with Talking Pictures TV is further proof – as if it was needed – of the continuing strength and popularity of the DTT platform in the UK. Relied upon for its high-quality, robust viewing experiences, Freeview also gives channels, such as Talking Pictures TV, the chance to engage and expand their footprint with a broader set of viewers yet to discover their services.”
