News UK will launch its TalkTV news channel to UK viewers on Monday, 25th April.
The channel will air on linear TV platforms Sky, Virgin Media, Freeview and Freesat, and will also be available to stream via Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Samsung TV Plus, YouTube, the TalkTV website and TalkTV iOS and Android apps.
TalkTV will broadcast from two locations: TalkTV’s headquarters at London Bridge, and from Ealing, where Piers Morgan’s evening show Piers Morgan Uncensored will be based.
Scott Taunton, EVP, president of broadcasting, News UK said: “TalkTV will be a new voice for viewers who are interested in straight talking opinions and expert insight on news and current affairs. The channel has been designed for the streaming age and will be accessible on linear TV as well as via social and on demand programming.
“We have a roster of new talent who will bring compelling new shows to the screen every weekday evening, alongside journalists from across News UK who have expertise in every genre. Our existing professional talent on TalkRadio already have their own followings and we will be bringing these popular and informed discussions about news and current affairs to a wider audience. Our launch schedule should get the nation talking and bring new choice to viewers in the market.”
