The major digital terrestrial platform is set to launch for the first time a new TV channel tailored for the military

Launching this month, Forces TV will air a whole host of new programming specifically created for the Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force.

The TV channel, which goes live on Monday 16th October on channel 96, will broadcast a unique blend of military and action-themed drama, comedy and factual-based documentaries, as well as news relating to everything that’s going on in the UK Forces.

The new schedule is set to include factual shows, including In Kabul: Britain’s Military In Afghanistan – a documentary centred around the British Armed Forces current presence in Kabul, to assist, train and advise the Afghanistan national defence and security forces – which is due to be aired on Tuesday 17th October at 10pm.

The channel, which Freeview have described as ‘The home of military life and entertainment’, will also include a new weekly topical show which covers everything from current UK military operations to training and technology. And for those seeking some chill-out time, the new channel will cater, as it is set to screen a range of action-packed movies, too.
