U.K.

Ch. 5 launch cleared

The U.K.’s fifth and last terrestrial TV channel, Channel 5, has proved the naysayers wrong and been given the official go-ahead to launch on March 30.

A condition of C5’s license required that it retune VCRs in 90% of British homes that would receive transmission interference from the introduction of the C5 signal.

The ITC, the U.K. TV regulatory authority, has determined that that requirement has now been met.
