There have been some changes at the Community Channel which affect the BSL Zone.

The changes at the Community Channel have happened because they need to secure funding for the channel to continue broadcasting after July this year.

For more information and to help save the channel, click here to go to its website.

The Community Channel is now only broadcasting on Freeview Channel 63 from 4am-12 noon every day. This means that BSL Zone programmes are only available on Freeview Channel 63 on Saturdays at 7.30am.

However, the Community Channel is still going out 24 hours a day on Sky channel 539, Virgin 269 and Freesat 651, so you can watch the BSL Zone here at the following times:

  • Saturdays at 7.30am
  • Tuesdays at 2pm
  • Thursdays at 7.30pm

And of course, you can still watch the BSL Zone on Film4 at 8am on Mondays.

We will keep you informed about any developments as soon as we know what’s happening.  Thank you for your patience!
