NME TV and Bliss join the line-up, giving the subscription-free service more than 150 channels

Freesat has added NME TV and Bliss to its channel line-up. The subscription-free satellite service now has more than 150 TV, radio and interactive channels.

NME TV is billed as 'the home of the best new bands and icons from the alternative scene' – if the NME counts as alternative – while Bliss focuses on mainstream pop music.

The two channels will automatically appear on customers' Freesat TVs or digital boxes without the need for a manual retune.

Freesat is a free digital TV service that requires a satellite dish and Freesat tuner but doesn't require a monthly charge.
