a516digital on Twitter is saying it's because they've squeezed in a 13th video stream. https://twitter.com/a516digital/stat...45023340306432

Showing on DigitalBitRate website apparently.

Re: Freeview changes

MB there's been no indication that the changes to the Welsh D3&4/PSB2 multiplex have been applied anywhere else. The changes to BBCA/PSB1 for BBC Scotland were eventually applied everywhere, but the key word is "eventually". And it doesn't mean the same will happen in this new circumstance. They may have decided to only apply it to Wales-serving D3&4 transmitters in this instance.

Sorry for getting back early but I just found where ITV/Channel 4 found the room to add E4 in Wales to D3/4:

It was as followed:
Look like D3&4 has only cut some channels Mb/s to add E4 in Wales on D3&4 so they CAN launch a UK Wide channel outside Wales if they wanted to.

Wales
PID null: 1.5Mb/s
DATAS & Audios: 4.8Mb/s
Channel 5: 1.8Mb/s
E4 +1: 1.2Mb/s
SC4: 1.5Mb/s
Channel 4 +1: 1.4Mb/s
E4: 1.5Mb/s
More4: 1.2Mb/s
Film4: 1.5Mb/s
Channel 4: 1.6Mb/s
ITV1 +1: 1.3Mb/s
ITV4: 1.7Mb/s
ITV2: 1.2Mb/s
ITV3: 1.1Mb/s
ITV1: 1.8Mb/s

London.
PID null: 0.5Mbs
DATAS & Audios: 4.3Mbs
Channel 5: 1.4Mbs
E4 +1: 1.6Mbs
Channel 4 +1: 1.4Mbs
E4: 1.9Mbs
More4: 1.5Mbs
Film4: 1.8Mbs
Channel 4: 1.8Mbs
ITV1 +1: 1.5Mbs
ITV4: 2.0Mbs
ITV2: 1.3Mbs
ITV3: 1.3Mbs
ITV1: 1.7Mbs

So to find the room to have E4 and it audio on D3&4 you will see from the list Mb/s has been cut from E4 +1, More4, Film4, Channel 4, ITV1 +1, ITV4, ITV2 and ITV3:

When you take away the list Mb/s in Wales it comes to 2.0Mb/s needed to broadcast E4 and it audio.

Wales > London. (Wales has lost/gain)

*PID null: 1.5Mb/s > 0.5Mbs (+1.0Mb/s)

*DATAS & Audios: 4.8Mb/s > 4.3Mbs (+0.5Mb/s)

*Channel 5: 1.8Mb/s > 1.4Mbs (+0.4Mb/s)

*E4 +1: 1.2Mb/s > 1.6Mbs (-0.4Mb/s)

*SC4: 1.5Mb/s
*Channel 4 +1: 1.4Mb/s > 1.4Mbs

*E4: 1.5Mb/s > 1.9Mbs (-0.4Mb/s)

*More4: 1.2Mb/s > 1.5Mbs (-0.3Mb/s)

*Film4: 1.5Mb/s > 1.8Mbs (-0.3Mb/s)

Channel 4: 1.6Mb/s > 1.8Mbs (-0.2Mb/s)

*ITV1 +1: 1.3Mb/s > 1.5Mbs (-0.2Mb/s)

*ITV4: 1.7Mb/s > 2.0Mbs (-0.3Mb/s)

*ITV2: 1.2Mb/s > 1.3Mbs (-0.1Mb/s)

*ITV3: 1.1Mb/s > 1.3Mbs (-0.2Mb/s)

*ITV1: 1.8Mb/s > 1.7Mbs (+0.1Mb/s)

I was going to post this earlier but the forum wasn't loading for me.

I noticed it on a local version of the mux on DigitalBitRate the other day and a516digital is saying it's elsewhere too.

It doesn't mean everyone outside Wales is getting a new channel on this multiplex as the BBC did the same on PSB1 (aka BBCA) when they made space for the BBC Scotland channel. It's sat empty everywhere else.

My Sources has reveal to me that D3&4 was upgraded on January 6th in Scotland.

And London was one of the last areas to be upgraded.

Re: Freeview changes

What may launch on the D3&4 on that new slot outside Wales:

May launch:
1) ITVBe - ITVBe do broadcast on SDN but do broadcast on D3&4 in Channel Islands.
2) E4 Extra - from COM5
3) Film4 +1 - from COM5
4) 4Seven - from COM5
5) 4Music - Relaunch
6) More4 +1 - Relaunch

Will not move:
1) CITV do broadcast on ITVs SDN
2) ITV2+1 do broadcast on ITVs SDN
3) ITV3+1 do broadcast on ITVs SDN but may move to D3&4 and becomes fulltime
4) ITV4+1 do broadcast on ITVs SDN but may move to ITV3+1 old slot starting at 9pm
5) ITVBe+1 do broadcast on ITVs SDN

If space is used outside Wales it will be for something non-core as otherwise there would be another Wales anomaly for a core service.

So it would likely be ITV4+1 since it onl has a very short and useless overnight allocation. ITV3+1 has a schedule that matches nicely with CITV which it shares stream with so I can't see ITV3+1 taking it.

If a C4 channel takes it it'll be a +1 or 4Seven since the latter is basically a timeshift in another guise.

I don't think any service will use it having said all that. It'll be like what happened with BBCA/PSB1 all over again.

I still feel S4C may move over to BBC A sometime this year due to the following:

A) Since April 2013 a funding for S4C was transferred to the BBC.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S4C_Authority

B) The BBC is not using the broadcasting slot outside Scotland [Slot being use in Scotland for BBC Scotland Channel).
C) S4C is on BBC iPlayer
D) S4C HD to timeshare with CBBC HD in Wales on Freeview.
