But TJC is on Channel 50 right now.

Media Boy Views: Look like Ideal World is set to close soon due to them selling their EPG slot (Channel 22) on Freeview to TJC from Wednesday.

With Ideal World set to move to Channel 50 from Wednesday then Channel 51 from January 26th.

I am only thinking this way due to Ideal World selling their sister channel last Monday.

I saw something the other day that suggested IW was having to raise money to pay off some debts. Freeview is the most expensive platform, so easiest place to cost cut if you have multiple options to choose from on the platform.

Ch22 being a LCN not affected by the upcoming BBC3-induced reshuffle, it has extra value, and the timing so close to said reshuffle helps too.
