On 2 March 2023, Now 80s reappeared on Freeview as a FAST channel on Channelbox channel 271 alongside Now 70s and Now 90s. The epic ‘This Corrosion’ from Sisters Of Mercy starts LP 2 in grandiose style, followed by atmospheric masterpieces from Siouxsie And The Banshees, Bauhaus and The Cure. As Now 80s became a channel which only viewers in Manchester could get on Freeview during this time, AATW decided to simulcast the repeats of Fame on their Now Christmas channel so viewers nationwide could follow the series. In July 2018, around the same time as the UKTV network of channels was being removed from Virgin Media, the cable platform added NOW 80s as a discrete channel adjacent to Clubland TV on the guide; for some time previously, NOW 80s and other AATW channels had been available to Virgin TiVo boxes as internet-streamed services accessed behind the red button via Clubland.Apart from episodes of the 1980s American drama Fame [12] (billed as Fame - The Original TV Series on the channel's EPG), the channel usually sticks to a back-to-back video format with radio presenters such as Pat Sharp, Mark Goodier and Simon Bates [13] presenting, appearing either as a voice-over or on-screen. and continuing with a run of some of most memorable hits of the decade from Kenny Loggins with ‘Footloose’, the massive number one ‘Uptown Girl’ from Billy Joel and the triumphant ‘I’m Still Standing’ from Elton John.

Following the success of NOW 80s, sister channel Chilled TV was retooled as 1990s music station Chilled 90s from March 2017; this channel was then used for NOW Christmas in 2017 (allowing the Christmas format and the 80s station to run simultaneously), before fully rebranded as NOW 90s from 27 December 2017.
