Re: Freeview changes

Sounds like a new shopping channel on coming to Freeview. BrandsTV has a license. Never heard of it.

Was it really needed to post this again? It's the 3rd post and it's not even happened. Most it needs is twice, once before it happens, once after.

That OK.

But if I was UKTV I would have launch Dave Ja Vu on UKTV's new Freeview slot and give Dave Ja Vu Channel 60 from Tomorrow. Keep Drama +1 on Channel 74.

Older demographics are more likely to use +1s and Drama has an older demographic than Dave. Dave viewers are more likely to use On-Demand. That's probably their logic.

As I am in a "older demographic" (Older then over 30s) I do watch Drama more then Dave.

Re: Freeview changes

Here is the up to date list of space on Freeview being unused.

24 hours slots:
-Old 5Select slot on COM4
-Old Create and Craft Extra slot on COM4
-Old RT slot on COM6
-Old Ideal World Extra slot on Local Mux

Part time slots:
-Smithsonian Channel slot on COM5 (3am to 7am only)
-Jewellery Maker/PBS slot on COM6 (5am to 8am only)

All information right as of March 28th.

All following Channels are set to close/or move to other streams on Freeview by July 2022.

SD:

FreeSports
Quest Red+1
Now 80s
More4+1
PBS America+1
That's TV (UK)
Forces TV
Together TV

HD:

Quest HD
BBC NEWS HD
BBC FOUR HD
CBeebies HD

Plus Talk TV is set to launch on April 25th on Freeview.

So I think a following may happen (My own views):
TalkTV may launch on COM4
NOW 80s may move to COM6
Forces TV may move to COM4
FreeSports may move to LTV Mux
Together TV may move to COM5 broadcasting from 3am to 7am.

I think That's TV UK will stay on Freeview but only via IPTV (Line up is the same as That's TV Local anyway.)

I think it safe to say the following is set to close on Freeview:

Quest Red+1
More4+1
PBS America+1
That's TV (UK)
Forces TV
Quest HD
BBC NEWS HD
BBC FOUR HD
CBeebies HD

What’s changing on April 25th:

New Channel Launches
Channel Name - Channel Number

TalkTV - Ch tbc

All information is right as of March 28th.

There was a gap on the old Together TV stream on COM5 that disappeared as Drama+1 is apparently 24hrs.

Xpanded moved from the 3am-7am Smithsonian Channel slot on COM5 to the Midnight to 7am gap on Ideal World's stream on COM6.

Smithsonian Channel Freeview EPG data at time of writing suggests it is retaining its 7am-3am hours though it could now go 24hrs now Xpanded has moved. Smithsonian Channel is 24hrs on other platforms.

As seen on my TV

Xpanded WAS timeshare with TWO Channels up to yesterday.

1. Together TV 12am to 3am
2. Then moved over to Smithsonian Channel slot from 3am-7am.

---------- Post added at 13:05 ---------- Previous post was at 12:35 ----------

Here is the up to date list of space on Freeview being unused.

24 hours slots:
-Old 5Select slot on COM4
-Old Create and Craft Extra slot on COM4 - Brandstv is set to launch soon on this slot.
-Old RT slot on COM6

-NOW 80s or Forces TV or FreeSports may move to COM6
-NOW 80s or Forces TV or FreeSports may move to LTV Mux

Do anyone know a viewing numbers for:

-Great! TV
-Great! Movies Classic
-Tiny Pop/ Great! Movies+1?

Here thinking out of the box (By me).

-Tiny Pop moves to COM6 and broadcasting from 5am to 8am.
-Great! Movies+1 moves to Manchester multiplex to timeshare with Pop Max
-That will make room for NOW 80s, Forces TV and FreeSports to all keep broadcasting.

Xpanded2 wasn't on the same multiplex as Xpanded. It shared with Great! Movies Action on COM4 and closed in mid December. https://rxtvinfo.com/freeview-updates

BARB website unfortunately stopped providing new Channel Share Ratings from 3rd January but Great! TV (0.17), Great! Movies Classic (0.26) and Tiny Pop (0.13 unusual as normally in 0.20 range) were all individually getting at least double/triple the ratings of each of Now80s (0.07), ForcesTV (0.04) & FreeSports (0.06) I think Narrative Entertainment UK's (who own Great! And Pop channels) output has got much more justification to remain where they are.
TogetherTV(0.05) BTW.

BARB website was still providing free Top 10s for individual channels, but I've always found channel share more useful as it covers entire output as, for example, two channels could have similar ratings for their Top10 broadcasts but the rest of the time have wildly different ratings.
