CBS Drama, which is owned and operated by the CBS AMC Networks UK Channels Partnership, is expanding its reach by launching on Freeview, on September 1.

This carriage deal means CBS Drama will be available to over 90% of UK households on Freeview.

CBS Drama has also acquired from CBS Studios International three series as part of the new Autumn line up: Sex and the City, Californication and Nurse Jackie.

Other series on the channel include the contemporary British dramas Waterloo Road and Clocking Off, US soaps Knots Landing and Dallas and retro classics Beverly Hills 90210 and Taxi.

CBS Drama offers some of the best in British and American drama and we look forward to sharing this popular content with the Freeview audiences, said Tanya Gugenheim, Chief Business Development and New Media Officer, AMC Networks International Zone.

CBS Action and CBS Reality launched on Freeview in 2014 while Horror Channel joined the DTT platform in April this year.
