A new channel, ‘That’s Memories,’ will debut on July 1, 2024, across the major UK television platforms, including Freeview, Sky, Virgin Media, and Freely.

Billed as ‘The Home of History and Culture,’ the channel from “That’s TV” aims to captivate audiences with a blend of nostalgic content, historical documentaries, and cultural programming.

Viewers can look forward to a range of shows, from true crime series exploring the Prohibition era in Atlantic City to in-depth documentaries on London’s history.

The launch of ‘That’s Memories’ marks an expansion for That’s TV, known for its music and nostalgia-focused offerings, as it ventures into broader historical and cultural territory.

The channel’s placeholder already launched on Freeview earlier this month, without any programming – which will now start on July 1 across all of its available platforms (see below for more on where to watch it).
