Sky seemingly moving forward with Sky Arts going FTA

​My interpretation of two license tweets today reported by @ukdtt​ is that the removal of the Pick+1 Freeview license and the addition of a Sky Arts one means Sky are moving forward with Sky Arts going Free-To-Air.

Presumably this will happen on Freesat as well as Freeview.

Update: Apparently Sky Arts is launching on Freeview in September according to this article (by a 3rd party).

Great find. Is Pick +1 on the temporary mux?

Pick+1 was closed/removed (from one of the temporary multiplexes) either about two days before the closure of the COM8 temporary multiplex was announced or about two days before COM8 was closed. I can't remember which.

Sky have 3 months to use the channel number (92) from that date, I think, under the rules.

They'll probably swap channel numbers with Challenge (46) I'd imagine.

Spot on Digital Spy wrote the following re: Sky Arts going Free-To-Air.

"The launch date is September 17th according to Phil Edgar Jones, Sky Arts Director, who has just been interviewed on Talk Radio."
