Channelbox adds two new services



Streamed channel portal Channelbox has this month added two new services for Freeview users

BritAsia TV and Vox Africa can now be accessed by users of compatible connected Freeview TVs or boxes by selecting channel 271 and using the remote control arrow keys to navigate to the relevant channel.

BritAsia is a channel targeting young British Asians and becomes the first music channel to be carried on Channelbox.

Vox Africa offers a variety of African news, current affairs, dramas, soaps, documentaries and the biggest reality music show in Africa, The Voice Afrique Francophone.

Channelbox is also currently the only place to watch vintage film channel Retro Movies, after its delisting from Sky and Freesat last month.

The availability of Channelbox varies depending on Freeview device; in tests RXTV log has seen some newer LG smart TVs that don't support this type of service, whereas other devices, usually TVs and receivers that hit the market in 2012-13 or later can access the service, subject to suitable connection to the internet.
