The Space, a new digital arts service managed by the Arts Council and developed in partnership with the BBC, DTG, S&T and the BFI, is now available on Freesat.
The Space previously launched on 1 May for a trial period running until the end of October, coinciding with and complementing the wealth of arts activity in 2012, including the London 2012 Festival and wider Cultural Olympiad.
Content now available on the on-demand service include early films by Ridley Scott and Ken Russell from the BFI archive; The Trojans performance from London's Royal Opera House, an interview between Stephen Fry and Tracey Emin live from the Turner Contemporary and live Shakespeare from The Globe Theatre's Globe to Globe series.
Emma Scott, Managing Director of Freesat said: "While the nation's eyes will be focused on the summer of sport in the UK, there is also an amazing summer of culture, with World class arts, culture and film on show across the country. I am delighted that Freesat is able to take part by hosting the BBC and Arts Council's new digital arts service, The Space. This exciting venture will make some of the most innovative, creative and contemporary visual arts available for viewers everywhere."
At this time a limited number of Freesat boxes/TV's are unable to receive 'The space' but the service will become available across more Freesat receivers soon.
