The Arts Channel

In this unprecedented time of national emergency, the absence of any live arts is already a significant issue. Renowned Norfolk-based composer Tony Britten today announces his new initiative for The Arts Channel – a subscription service he founded last May which gives arts lovers the opportunity to watch carefully curated music and arts films and documentaries from the UK and around the world, most of which cannot be seen anywhere else in this country. International programming is either subtitled or has an English commentary. Recent acquisitions include new films about composer Arvo Pärt, jazz singer George Melly and Peter Stein’s extraordinary stage version of Goethe’s Faust, exclusive to the channel.


We are SVOD – Subscription Video on Demand and the yearly cost is a very reasonable £60.00 to watch on mobile, tablets, desktop and television via computer. But we feel that the right thing to do is to offer a free six-month subscription to all arts lovers; whilst we can’t emulate the extraordinary achievements of our NHS and supporting services, we can offer something to make people’s enforced isolation a little more bearable. Its very simple – click the subscribe button on and enter the code: TACFREE  Or click on this direct link


Of course if you feel you can subscribe, please do – producers round the world are being very generous, but there are costs involved with acquiring and screening the films they are offering to us.
