A+E Networks U.K. extended distribution of its new free-to-air channel BLAZE, following a deal with subscription-free satellite TV platform Freesat. Yesterday, BLAZE became available to 1.9 million Freesat homes. The announcement came six weeks after the successful global debut of the new entertainment brand in the U.K. on Freeview (Channel 83), Sky (Channel 565) and as a TV Everywhere service.  BLAZE offers viewers a range of series such as as Pawn Stars (pictured) , Mountain Men, and American Restoration, as well as Forged In Fire, the epic blade making competition series.
