Two new channels have come to Freesat. They're not dedicated channels in their own right, but +1 time shift services for quiz show channel Challenge and entertainment portal Pick, which started life as Sky3.

They'll both show their respective channel's shows an hour later than the broadcast time. Handy if you're running late.

Challenge+1 can be found on channel 160, while Pick+1 is on 159.

Challenge broadcasts such quiz show stalwarts as 'The Crystal Maze', 'Knightmare', 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire' and 'Pointless'. Pick is described as giving viewers "easy-to-watch telly with a window to real life and unashamedly escapist entertainment". Its shows include 'The Dog Whisperer' and 'Criminal Minds'.

"With more than 200 channels on offer, we're able to bring our viewers more choice than ever across film, lifestyle, music and children's programming," said Paul Gilshan, Freesat's marketing and communications director.

"We're excited to add Pick+1 and Challenge+1 to Freesat's ever-expanding entertainment line-up, guaranteeing free TV viewers will never be short of something great to watch. And best of all, it's subscription free."

That it is. Once you've paid for your set-top box or satellite dish, Freesat is completely free, just like Freeview. You can also access shows from the likes of BBC iPlayer by using Freetime, Freesat's catch-up hub.
