ITV1 will be launching 6 ITV1 “timeshift” channel variations. In other words “ITV1+1″. They will start on the 11th January 2011. There has been no confirmation yet of Freesat or Sky Channel numbers.

The variations will be:
London
South East (encompassing Meridian and Anglia)
West (encompassing Wales & West and Westcountry)
Central
Yorkshire/Tyne Tees (encompassing Yorkshire and Tyne Tees)
Granada/Border (encompassing Granada and Border)

A new UK broadcaster, Electric Sofa Media, will be launching three new channels in early 2011. Two of these will be movie channels, and one will be a general entertainment channels They are to be free to air channels, and will be on Freesat. It is unknown if they will be available on Sky also, as the recently launched Men and Movies channel is blocked on Sky receivers.

Although specifics, including launch dates, have yet to be confirmed, CBS have been granted licenses for two new high-definition channels, CBS Action HD and CBS Drama HD. These will be HD versions of the current CBS Action and CBS Dramas channels. Although the SD channels are free to air, it is unknown if these HD channels will also be free to air, or will be part of the Sky HD package.
