Freeview may get Travel Channel back if Really fold into Quest Red and TLC happen.

We may see UKTV moving to new channels numbers when it happen.

We feel Discovery may axe some channels as they will own

Discovery Channel
Animal Planet
Discovery History
Discovery Home & Health
Discovery Science
Discovery Shed
Discovery Turbo
DMAX
Investigation Discovery
Quest
Quest Red
TLC
Food Network
Travel Channel
Good Food
Home
Really

And that before all the +1 Channels and HD Channels.
Very informative! Thanks MB

The whole point of BBC Worldwide, which was folded into BBC Studios, was to make money to add to the money the BBC gets from the Licence Fee, so it's doing the financing of the wider BBC, the BBC isn't funding it.

According to BARB ratings Quest Red had a 0.48 share of total viewing in April 2019, TLC had 0.21 and Really had 0.64.

Of course TLC is a Pay channel so the money from that would offset the lower ratings to an extent.

DMAX, which replaced Travel Channel on Freeview in January (and went FTA on Freesat at the same time) had a 0.34 rating in April. DMAX had 0.03 in the last month before the change. Travel Channel had 0.32 rating in the month before the change and was 0.03 in April.

Given Really is higher rating than Quest Red I don't see them closing it. And Quest Red is higher rating than Travel Channel before it left Freeview, so why remove that? They aren't just going to do it because they are similar and Travel Channel being different would widen the genre choice, money will dictate that, and larger ratings probably mean the similar channels make more money for them.

Having said that I'd like Travel Channel to return to Freeview.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

In the Ofcom monthy update:

https://www.ofcom.org.uk/manage-your...cences/update:

Omnidirectional has noticed that a new satellite/cable licence has been awarded for Made in Teeside, which is odd as the channels are no longer called 'Made' and only broadcast a single national service on satellite.

Is there a local channel on VM in Teeside?

I'm guessing the STV2 contract with VM expired before That's Scotland launched and wasn't transferred to That's.

There was a period between STV2 closing, STV selling to That's and That's actually launching where all That's Scotland showed was a Coming Soon screen on Freeview.

Maybe they have revised the conditions under which the channel operates.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

Steady Media Boy you could get reported in your own thread - the amount of gaps in the frequency plan (and where they are!) aren't appropriate to the Coming Soon thread as I was told when I introduced this line of chat.
