Do anyone else think it time for +1 channels to close on Freeview to make room for more channels to launch? (UK Wide only)

1) ITV +1/STV +1 & UTV +1
2) Channel 4+1
3) Channel 5 +1
4) ITV2 +1
5) ITV3 +1
6) ITV4 +1
7) ITVBe +1
8) Quest +1
9) E4 +1
10) Film4 +1
11) Dave ja vu
12) Drama +1
13) Yesterday +1
14) GREAT! movies +1
15) Blaze +1
Most of them should close as they take up valuable space although the +1 channels for the main channels, such as ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5, should stay.

Re: Freeview changes

Been thinking over Easter Weekend I think it safe to say Dave Ja Vu and Drama +1 will both be axe on Freeview when UKTV launch Alibi and GOLD on Freeview.

Information was given to me March 21st.

If they do move those two to FTA I can't see obvious ways to get significantly better channel numbers on DTT. ITV are clearly up for deals with their +1s based on what happened with ITV4+1 placeholder recently, but those remaining placeholders they have are right next to Drama+1 at Ch60, so only the stream currently used by Dave Ja Vu would get a worthwhile move (from Ch 74), and even then they are pretty far from Yesterday on Ch27.

Due to COM7 closing I can see UKTV (BBC) giving up Yesterday +1 two hour slot.

Maybe they still have IP Fallback plans for the +1s, even after any making the remaining Pay portfolio FTA or closed.

I did wonder if a516digital had made a follow-up tweet, as last time I'd looked it was a Poll in which £2m was an option. I see they now have with the £6.9m figure.

Company directors home addresses are public information. Anyone can look them up at Companies House if they wish. You are not breaching any privacy by linking to information that is in the public domain so you really shouldn’t worry about linking to bankruptcy paperwork if you think it illustrates the point you’re making.
