Re: New channels planned for Freeview.

No more OTA updates?
I'd better check my local charity shop with electricals and offer to do update checks on any freeview boxes.

Re: New channels planned for Freeview.

Good idea, as these may be older boxes.

The modern ones will be internet connected, so this is how they will send updates in the future.

Re: New channels planned for Freeview.

New travel channel starts in May with a licence to broadcast on Freeview (and all other 'digital platforms'.)

Re: New channels planned for Freeview.

UPDATE:

Sewing Quarter will move to D3&4 Mux tomorrow (April 3rd) with new hours of 8am to 4pm.
An unknown channel will soon launch on D3&4 from 4pm to 8am.
ITVBe has launch on D3&4 in the Channel Island (ITV Channel Island do not have an ITV +1 Channel)

Media Boy Thinks:
True Movies will use Sewing Quarter old hours and go 24/7* (True Movies share with Sewing Quarter with now)

But MB HQ have no idea what will happen to ITV3 old slot.

Re: New channels planned for Freeview.

Pick +1 is currently testing behind the scenes using the former CBS Action +1 capacity.

There's speculation that this will be a placeholder for the Sky owned channel Real Lives to go FTA once existing contracts with pay TV operators have expired.
