Virgin Radio, the UK’s leading commercial pop and rock music station, is set to launch on Freeview, providing viewers with yet more digital radio choice and entertainment.
When it launches on 18th July, Virgin Radio will be available to over seven million Freeview homes in the UK (see note 1 below). To get Freeview and its fantastic line-up of digital services, all you need to do is make a one-off payment from around £40 for a digital box then plug it into their TV and rooftop aerial (see note 2) . Alternatively, you can buy a digital TV (idTV) or Digital TV Recorders which have a digital tuner built-in.
“Freeview makes Virgin Radio accessible to even more homes right across the UK.” Says Virgin Radio Breakfast Show DJ Christian O’Connell, “Tune in to my breakfast show every morning for the best music and a great wake up call!”
Sophie Alexander, Head of Consumer Marketing at Freeview said: “As digital radio services continue to increase in popularity, we are delighted to announce that Virgin Radio, the UK’s biggest commercial radio station, will now be available to Freeview consumers.”
