The channel is already available in several European countries, including the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Spain and is not just popular with LGBTQI audiences; around 40% of OUTtv viewers are straight women.

A spokesperson told SM Entertainment that the channel would initially be available through Sky only, although more platforms are expected to follow.

OUTtv will be available as a premium add-on channel for £9.99 a month and €11.99 in Ireland, although annual subscriptions can be purchased for £99. Viewers can order the channel through the out.tv website.

The channel hopes to engage fully with the UK and Irish LGBTQI community and has plans to launch a nationwide contest this summer to find "the face of OUTtv".

OUTtv will be available on Sky channel 330.
