Horror Channel has announced plans to debut on the Freeview DTT platform, appropriately enough on Friday 13th March.

The CBS AMC Networks UK Channels Partnership-operated channel is already carried on Sky, Freesat and Virgin.

Tanya Gugenheim, Chief Business Development Officer, AMC Networks International – Zone said: “Horror Channel has become the third channel in the CBS AMC Channel portfolio to launch on Freeview within a year, joining CBS Reality and CBS Action and underscoring the demand for our content offering. The channel already boasts a loyal fan base, and we’re pleased to introduce it to a broader audience through Freeview.”

Guy North, Managing Director at Freeview said: “We’re excited to welcome another member of the CBS AMC Channel portfolio to Freeview. Horror Channel will provide the bravest of our viewers with plenty of thrilling programmes alongside cult classics and fantasy favourites for the more faint-hearted.”

Horror Channel will use capacity leased from transmission company Arqiva.

It originally launched in November 2009.
