Thanks for that Ozat, I watched a programme (I think it was BBC 2 TV) called Spotlight yesterday, but it was not Country and Western, perhaps there are two different progs called the same.

Spotlight TV has officially ceased broadcasting. A new channel called Music & Memories has taken its place on ChannelBox (Freeview 271) with similar content. There is also an Irish Country music evening every week in a Monday on Channel 7 TV that features programmmes that used to be broadcast on Spotlight. This can be found on Vision TV (Freeview 264) or on Sky channel 182.

Re: Freeview changes

Are there any spare 24 hour Freeview slots available?

I ask because it's believed that Christmas24 will be going FTA on 1 November.

I'm wondering if it will stay FTA after Christmas, but this business model usually means that the channels also join Freeview.

I wouldn't go as far as "usually". It's far from a guarantee.

What I said was a sweeping generalisation of my recollection of my many years watching developments regards TV in UK. I can only give a gut gist, I can't give specifics, it was simply my immediate reaction to it.

Sorry I can't give you a more specific answer Richard.

Re: Freeview changes

Due to today changes on Freeview:

*Freeview has NO room to launch any more new channels unless they make a bid to use Together TV slot on COM4/SDN.

*No broadcaster wants a Slot on SDN that has been open to any broadcaster since June 2022 so SDN has given it for FREE to Together TV.

Here is today changes in full:

Information from UK Terrestrial TV:

*NOW 80s has been delisted from Manchester TV Network on Ch. 77.
*Clubland TV has been delisted from Manchester TV Network on Ch. 80.
*NOW 90s has been delisted from Manchester TV Network on Ch. 87.
*Together TV has moved from ch 83 to ch 92 on COM5 and changed to Together TV+1
*Together TV has been added to COM4 on ch 83
*RealityXtra 2 has been added to COM4 on ch 69
*Pet Collective has been added to COM4 on ch 278

Re: Freeview changes

There's bound to be another change on the way because RealityXtra 2 being on a Main multiplex whilst RealityXtra is on the Local multiplex makes no sense.
