TV Schedules – What’s On

If you are looking for a good film in the United Kingdom then you need to be watching television channels such as Talking Pictures TV, Horror Channel and Film4. All of these are free to air channels meaning they can be viewed on Freeview. Here our pick of the TV Schedules:

  • Talking Pictures TV available on Sky 328 | Virgin 445 | Freeview 81 | Freesat 306
  • Horror Channel available on Sky | Virgin 149 | Freeview 70 | Freesat 138
  • Film4 available on Sky 313 | Virgin 428 (SD) & 429 (HD) | Freeview 15

Talking Pictures specialise in showing older vintage material with many black and white films along with films into the 1970/80’s. If for instance you love the likes of Laurel and Hardy, Will Hay, Alfred Hitchcock then this is most definitely the channel for you. The good news continues as they add different films into the mix each month so you are not just watching the same films or TV series over and over again, UK Gold take note!

The Horror Channel shows a good mix of old and new horror/sci-fi films and also have network premieres every month to keep things fresh.

Film4 is a more general film channel which shows films from all genres. It has themed seasons such as Frightfest in which they show horror movies each night over a few weeks.

Meanwhile we always like to select our must see choices from all of the TV channels over the Christmas period.
