Re: New channels planned for Freeview.

Oh right, I had been told that it was only in the testing stage. Perhaps it's now actually live in some areas??

If it does indeed morph into Real Lives, I think that this will be a decent addition to Freeview.

COM7 only broadcasts on HD transmitters and has coverage of around 75% of the UK.*

They need a good comedy channel. Dave is the only one but it needs competition.

Re: New channels planned for Freeview.

The forthcoming Paramount channel will probably show some comedy.

Something has happened on COM7 today. The total size of the video streams has reduced by roughly 0.8Mbs.

The free space is now certainly enough for an new SD channel.

As Travel XP is said to be launching on 30/4/18, I suspect that it will be for this:
