Upcoming Bengali channel, Channel S will commence

broadcasting on 16th December 2004. The new

entertainment channel targeting the Bengali communities

living in the UK will initially timeshare with ATN on

Sky Digital channel 827.

The previews of the channel will take place daily

between 11pm and 3am for three months. This will

showcase the channel and give tasters of the programmes

to come. On 21st February, Channel S will extend its

broadcasting hours and launch on its own EPG slot.

Then later on 26th March, Channel S will begin

broadcasting round the clock. The new channel will

officially throw its launch party in April, so until

then quite a bit happening!
