Dave in the UK
Looking to get a little Dave in your life? We let you know how to receive this UK telly channel.
Surely the best free TV channel around - "Dave" started life as UK Gold 2, then UKTV G2.
We covered the launch of "Dave" in Show 19 of our podcast - Dave launched in October 2007 - the reason behind the name? Everyone knows someone called Dave. This clever re-brand appears to have worked, as this has become a very popular free channel.
