No, but they ceased transmitting on UHF analogue around about a month ago.

My flatmates were very disappointed so I emailed Juice but still no reply. Hoping they eventually find a channel on freeview...




Time to find a new industry!

The cost to launch on Freeview is pretty steep, I'm assuming they still get carried for free on Sky.

i heard somewhere i forget where but they where getting government funding for there analog channel so if they still have a need for the funding they would have to go to freeview or just have stayed on analog till it was cut off


maybe there funding ran out so they cut it off

Juice TV has pulled the plug the plug of Analogue transmissions and is now on SKY TV Channel 62.

The reason for the switch to Sky is still a question that is yet to be answered, Transmission costs are high to run in Auckland and Sky is the only way because it is Free to broadcast.

Many people are now talking about the new channels that will broadcast on Freeview in Jan 2012 to replace Startos TV which has now ceased broadcasting on both DVB platforms

That frequency is actually owned by Kordia. NZOA were involved in some way I believe too. So maybe something changed with the arrangement between them and Juice Music TV. Or with Analog slowly being switched off (Trackside and Amatuer TV have now also gone) they're not getting the viewership. Or they're making way for DSO or the transmitters are failing. Could be many reasons.
