CNN International launches on Freeview

CNN International is now available on Freeview channel 84, everyday from 9pm to 1am.

CNN's programme line-up began on the 15 January with a 1 hour special, 'The Middle East Challenge', hosted by CNN's Hala Gorani.

In January, CNN will offer coverage of the inauguration of US President-elect Barack Obama, including reporting from the swearing-in ceremony and the inauguration parade, and the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland where the world's business leaders will be debating the financial crisis and exploring solutions.

CNN International has been broadcasting part of its schedule from the UK since 1985. The channel currently broadcasts more than 50 hours a week from its European headquarters in London.

Freeview said a retune may be required to receive this new service. Retuning information is available on the Freeview website.
