Re: Freeview changes

​@ukdtt on Twitter has noticed an OFCOM license that suggests GOLD is coming to Freeview, and therefore probably FTA on other platforms.

https://twitter.com/ukdtt/status/1338359321256718337​​

Now that UKTV has got 24 hour streams for Dave Ja Vu and CCXTV maybe UKTV are making two channels FTA? Until this license got reported I thought speculation about this unlikely. Less so now.

Dave Ja Vu is at too prominent an EPG number (23) for a +1 so I still feel it's a placeholder. I know I'm a stuck record on this, but I can still see Eden going FTA as it's ratings are much worse than the rest of UKTV's channels, except for CCXTV which they just bought.

Re: Freeview changes

Apparently the GOLD Freeview license was an administrative mistake.

RAM on Digital Spy has posted that they emailed UKTV and got the following reply.

"Dear Viewer,

Thank you for your email.

Thanks for your message and to confirm, Gold is not moving into Free to Air. Unfortunately Ofcom inadvertently published Daveís license on its website. As Dave is a free to air channel this made it look like Gold was moving into Free. This is not the case and Ofcom have now corrected their website. We hope this clarifies the situation and thank you very much for your interest in UKTVís channels.

Re: Freeview changes

​CCXTV has no EPG information from next Monday according to @Page_888 on Twitter.

This was then confirmed by @budgie on Twitter who posted a photo showing an on-screen message saying it's closing on 1st February to be replaced by Drama+1.
https://mobile.twitter.com/budgie/st...39139200536578

---------- Post added at 19:20 ---------- Previous post was at 19:14 ----------

​Also @ukdtt on Twitter says PBS America and +1 are moving to 84 and 87 respectively from 1st February.

There are obviously going to be more moves as these numbers are currently occupied.

I can't find a source for those to confirm yet. But there are some gaps needing filled so I can see more shuffling happening.

Re: Freeview changes

​Forces TV is no longer moving number today on Freeview. Country Music Entertainment is now moving to Ch88 instead.

Heads-up from a516digital today on Twitter. Confirmed on the updated Freeview page (link in above post).

Re: Freeview changes

​According to @ukdtt Together+1 is closing on Freeview. @a516digital has posted a photo of confirmation from EPG data.

There has been speculation from others that their stream is being used for Court TV, which is launching on Freeview on Monday.

Given they only just moved up the EPG, there would have been no reason to bother unless they knew something was taking the slot.

If true, I assume the recent consultation has been given the go-ahead as Together TV has nothing to do with Court TV, so the new LCN trading rules would need to be in effect.

Re: Freeview changes

​Court TV now on Ch 89 on COM7.

Together TV +1 Ch 83 (COM7) has closed.
Midnight to 3am on Together TV Ch82 is vacant so I can see them parking the LCN there in the weeks to come.
