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!
