Here at Food Network UK, we aim to bring you the biggest, the best and the most outrageous in food entertainment. And so, after a monumental first year on Freeview, we have decided that four hours a day just isn’t enough.
From 20 July, viewers of Freeview, the UK’s largest digital television provider, will be able to watch us all day, every day. There is now no excuse to miss the outrageous antics of Adam Richman’s Man vs Food Nation, the mouth-watering meals in Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives or the sublime street food in Andy Bates Street Feasts, as well as so much more.
As Guy North, Marketing Communications Director at Freeview, told us, the expansion means a better deal for everyone. "By expanding Food Network’s on-air presence, we are not only providing viewers with round-the-clock food and lifestyle programmes, but we also enrich and strengthen the overall value of our subscription-free offer.”
And our own Nick Thorogood, Managing Director of Food Network Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) added, "Today's news is a testament to the quality of our programming and Food Network UK's popularity and reputation amongst viewers. By extending our hours on this platform, all Freeview households will now be able to enjoy our great food entertainment all day, every day."
We will be at Freeview Channel 49 day and night, serving up an unmatched menu of food entertainment for you to enjoy – so come and join us, we promise there’s enough for everyone!
Food Network UK will be available on Freeview all day, every day in all areas that have had Digital Switchover. The channel will be available full time on Freeview in Tyne Tees by 26th September and Ulster from 24th October.
