​Create & Craft is moving frequency on Wed 26th February. It's currently 7am-10pm on COM5.

The space vacated by Hochanda when it decided it could afford 24hrs is my guess as to where it's going. 7pm-7am is currently free on SDN.

Re: Freeview changes

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

-Old Hochanda slot on SDN (7pm to 7am only)
-Old TBN UK slot on COM5
-Old TJC slot on COM5
-Old 5Spike slot on COM6

All information right as of January 8th.

---------- Post added at 20:14 ---------- Previous post was at 20:07 ----------

I think the following may happen on Freeview

-Hochanada may move to Sewing Street slot.

Both Sewing Street and Jewellery Maker may use other slot

re Jewellery Maker broadcasts as far as I know 8am to 10pm so can fix into Create and Craft slot.

This post is the views of Media Boy who do not work for any of the channels listed in this post.

Interesting. To me it sounds like Sewing Street will be timesharing with Jewellery Maker on this new Shopping Quarter channel. JM needs to get a home outside of the temporary multiplex it's currently in, so a timeshare with its sister station makes sense. One if those free 24hr slots will be taken for this purpose I'd imagine.

The space Sewing Quarter is vacating isn't an ideal time of day, so maybe PBS America will expand into it, since they share it already.

Re: Freeview changes

Jewellery Maker has now confirmed what is going on from Thursday.

Jewellery Maker will be on Channel 73 from 8am to 1pm on Freeview SD.

Sewing Street will broadcast from 8am before Jewellery Maker takes over at 1pm to 10pm on Freeview HD Channel 74.

Re: Freeview changes

I did wonder about Channel 73. And that clarifies that a free permanent multiplex position isn't being used. Many thanks Media Boy.

Re: Freeview changes

I have yet to check this on my own TV, but via info from @ukdtt on Twitter.

Create & Craft has moved to COM4, presumably to the 7pm-7am space left by Hochanda cutting its hours. Channel number remains same.

Now70s has launched in the vacated C&C space (7am-10pm) on COM5 but on Channel 78.

Now90s which shared with C&C on COM5 during 5am-7am has been removed. Now90s basically was renamed Now70s, then moved time and channel number on the same stream.

CCXTV (basically a spinoff of the C&C shopping channel) has launched on COM5 on Channel 95. I think it's taken the 5am-7am part of the stream Now90s vacated, but have yet to confirm this.

Jewellery Maker moves to Ch73 and takes the COM6 8am-1pm slot

Shopping Quarter replaces Jewellery Maker on Ch74 COM7 and will show a mix of Sewing Street and Jewellery Maker.

Digital Bit Rate is reporting that Create & Craft (SID : 13000) is using an new stream that launch today on SDN (COM4).

So an new channel has still to appear using Hochanda left over space.

RXTV is reporting that CCXTV has still to launch but it can use NOW 90s old slot or the old slot of TJC or TBN UK (Both 24hours slots)

Re: Freeview changes

They only just added the extra (17th) stream for TJC on SDN. I can't see why they'd be insane enough to add another...yet I can see it on SDN when it would be off-air if it was sharing Hochanda's stream.

I'm surprised MB.

CCXTV is meant to be a spin-off of C&C. I was expecting it to be a predominantly streaming channel in Freeview. It would be a very confident move by Ideal World to go 24hrs straight away on such an expensive platform. We'll soon see.

Digital Bit Rate is reporting that SDN have room to launch one more 24 hour broadcasting channel

SDN is own by ITV.

So if they wanted to ITV can launch an full time ITV3 +1 channel on Freeview with ITV4 +1 coming on Freeview at 9pm using where ITV3 +1 broadcasts right now.

I know they do. My point was that Create & Craft just used that apparent new stream, so ITV have decided not to use it.

Wouldn't be surprised to see another channel crammed into D3&4 now though.

And since Arqiva maintains them all, we could be seeing more on multiple other multiplexes. Though I shudder at the possible picture quality implications.

Due to Create and Craft moving to SDN we are now likely to see an new "Adult Channel" launching using C&C stream over night.

Re: Freeview changes

Digital Bit Rate is reporting that COM4 has got 2.0 Mp/s free on "PID null" But Channels are running at time of posting up to 1.8 Mp/s so that make room for an 19th stream to launch.

Info down at Bitrate graph on the following link.

That could just be that Hochanda was off-air at the time of the last scan. It's only on 12 hours a day after all.
