Paramount Network joins Freesat

Freesat and Channel 5 have sealed a deal to offer Paramount Network to more viewers.

A press release issued today by the TV service provider confirmed viewers would be able to access the channel in standard definition on EPG slot 132.

Paramount Network offers UK viewers a diet of mostly US drama and movies. It is controlled by US media giant Viacom's UK subsidary, Channel 5 Broadcasting.

Paramount Network launched last summer, with Freesat becoming the last major TV platform to get the channel. It is currently available in HD on Virgin Media only.
