  2. To clarify this misinterpretation we wish to indicate that we were not referring to Rural TV but to the Country Music programme “Hot Country” which has recently changed to the Showcase Channel, Sky 201. We strive to provide information which is as accurate as possible but realise that misinterpretations can occasionally occur. We wish the excellent Rural TV Channel every success in the future.

  3. I watched Rural TV when it had its own channel and have missed Hot Country so much! I am so glad to have found it is still on, and shall be tuning in to listen every week!

  4. I enjoy Hot Country.The most entertaining programme on my 80 euro Lidl freesat system. Well done everybody involved.Outstanding

  5. It’s great to see Country Music back on TV.
    I much miss the Country Music Channel ( whoah,
    that was fifteen years back?)
    Pity the BBC only offer a radio show, and ITV
    have seemingly never heard of Country.

  6. Hot Country is aso broadcast on UPC channel 107 on cable tv systems in Co Dublin and surrounding counties.This is a local tv for Dublin.

  7. What about mart Stuart and the other programme that had all the old timers on chatting and singing it was great and is so missed
