Lifestyle Satellite Jukebox was a music video request channel in the UK (and across Europe) in the late 80s and early 90s which was owned by the now defunct WHSTV (WH Smiths' TV division). The channel broadcast via transponder 5 on the Astra 1A satellite after the Lifestyle had closed down for the day (generally around 22:00). Requesting tracks on the service involved calling a premium rate telephone number and entering the three digit number of your desired track. The current track numbers and descriptions could be found via the Lifestyle Teletext service, frames broadcast in between videos and in Satellite TV Europe magazine. The numbers of the track requested would be broadcast live on the screen whilst the viewer was entering them and would also provide other live information at the bottom of the screen such as which tracks had recently been requested. The channel ceased broadcasting in 1993 following the closure of the Lifestyle Channel which was replaced by German general entertainment channel VOX.
