How to get music channels

Music channels are available through all major digital, cable and satellite TV services.

People that just have a Freeview box can watch 4Music, and Viva, which both show a mix of music videos and entertainment shows.

If you subscribe to a cable TV provider, such as Virgin Media, or a satellite TV provider like Sky or Freesat, you will have access to a much wider range of music channels.
