I don't know, though. The BBC haven't changed their idents for a while and ITV may find themseves with a different channel number...

I think MB is just trying to keep the 'Coming Soon' thread alive with all these DNPs that we don't have a clue what they refer to and rarely seem to arrive. It's become nothing but smoke and mirrors.

I doubt we will get any worthwhile new channels in 2018, but I am hopeful that we may get some more streaming services and additional UHD content.

Anyone hoping for more than that is likely to be disappointed.

Only channel we're aware of that should be arriving early 2018 is Freesports we know talks are on going.
Other than that we have no further channel info, however a year is a very long time in the media industry so who knows.

Good grief you are getting pessimistic in your old age OB.

Yes, Freesports is the only channel that I've been told about (though there are those 16 services that jj20x found).

I wonder if the delay to adding Freesports is anything to do with this:

If so, I imagine premier may cease being a subscription service.

My word, Den - thanks for the commentary!

Where else would you go? As I've explained zillions of times, I don't want Sky, the others are inferior services and a move to streaming only is premature at this stage, given that we are in a transitional period.

However, the point I am making is that new channels have all but dried up and VM are on a go slow when it comes to new streaming services.
