Classic Who on Freeview - Via The Horror Channel

It's been quite a while since Classic Who was freely available to watch in the UK - but today it was announced that the Horror Channel (previously only available on Sky, Virgin and Freesat) is to move to Freeview.  From Friday 13 March 2015, we'll be able to watch Classic Who without needing a subscription.

It's great news - and the Horror Channel will be on Freeview Channel 70.  Previously, Classic Who on the Horror Channel was only available to around 3 million subscribers.  Moving to Freeview will expand this to 19 million.

The first story to air on Freeview is expected to be the wonderful 1978 story, "The Stones of Blood" - one of my all time favourites.
