KUALA LUMPUR: The nation's fourth free-to-air station Channel 9, a privately-owned network, will swing into action on Tuesday with test transmissions from 3pm till midnight.  

“Channel 9's tune-in exercise was delayed because our initial frequency clashed with another station. 

“We had to switch to another channel given by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission on the ultra-high frequency band,” said Jayaganesh Sabapathy, Channel 9's director of engineering and production operations. 

Klang Valley viewers will be the first to sample Channel 9's offerings.  

The test broadcast will initially cover a 100km radius of the Klang Valley before expanding nationwide.  

The station's full transmission begins on Sept 9.  

Once fully operational, the station will air programmes from 1pm till 3am on weekdays and from 9.30am till 3am on weekends.  

Early treats include urban TV series Sex In The City (renamed In The City), Japanese flick Ring “0,” Iranian film Children of Heaven, British comedy The Kumars At No. 42 and the UEFA European Football Awards.
