UKTV is a multi-television channel and video on demand (VOD) provider in the UK, formed through a joint venture between BBC Worldwide, a commercial subsidiary of the British Broadcasting Corporation and (now) Scripps Networks Interactive. It is one of the United Kingdom’s largest television companies.
UKTV’s channels are available via digital satellite and cable subscriptions in the UK and Ireland. Yesterday, Dave, Drama and Really channels are also available in the UK on Freeview, the free-to-air digital terrestrial television (DTT) service, with selected parts of Gold, Home and Good Food channels available through subscription with Top Up TV. It also provides linear channels to the BT Vision IPTV service. As yet, no UKTV channels appear on the UK free-to-air Freesat digital satellite service even though the BBC are one of the joint venture partners of this service.
