I think the 2x Quest +1 channel moves you mentioned will happen too, given the way the EPG policy works on Freeview.

There is the potential for most of the 70s to reorganise or shuffle up soon. They may do it when the major 1-place shuffle happens in November.

Re: Freeview changes

Now it's the 27th as I post this, the following Freeview changes are going to happen today according to a new a516digital tweet.

The Horror Channel move was known already (see earlier post), the others won't be a surprise as many of us guessed they were likely.

ITVBe+1 moves from 97 to 57

Horror Channel moves from 70 to 68

Quest+1 moves from 76 to 69

Quest Red+1 moves from 72 to 70

Re: Freeview changes

​User TYCO on Digital Spy has said CCXTV is no longer registered to Ideal World and is now under the ownership of UKTV. No source is given.

Since Yesterday+1 (Ch75) was added months ago I've been thinking it was a placeholder for Eden to go Free-To-Air. It's only on from 5am-7am daily so it needed a stream, which this would give it, as well as a much better EPG number. Yesterday is currently Ch25, so maybe it would switch to Ch23 and any CCXTV replacement would be on Ch25 (26 from November).

CCXTV, at LCN Ch 23, is currently the most prominent channel not being affected by the process to move BBC4 in Scotland to within the Top 24 by moving every channel between 24 and 54 down a place.

Re: Freeview changes

​The Accessible TV Guide (Ch 555) has now launched. Rather than just the EPG listing previously mentioned on here.

Details, including requirements, can be found here. https://www.freeview.co.uk/help/29-o...v-guide​

A video can be found here explaining it. youtu.be/uJ2Sy-afZTg​​

Re: Freeview changes

When playing about with my Freeview EPG to see what was on last Tuesday Night I found that Studio 66 (Channel 679) is now broadcasting from 10pm to 6am (extra two hours was starting at midnight).

But we can see where the extra hours are coming from so maybe using an new stream?

I vaguely recall someone saying something along those lines on Digital Spy. There were no further details given except speculation it was GB News (which sounds awful, so I hope it's wrong).

Re: Freeview changes

Today's channel shuffle in detail.
https://www.freeview.co.uk/help/4-no...hannel-changes

The short version: BBC4 In Scotland moves to 24 from 55, everyone from 24 (ITV4) to 54 (5Select) moves 1 position e.g. 5Select is now 55.

According to a516digital on Twitter the company has appointed UKTV directors with a link to a .gov website in the thread. So it seems the UKTV takeover of CCXTV is real and the BARB ratings grouping with the other UKTV channels wasn't an error.

Re: Freeview changes

What's happening with Freeview, went to watch 'Can't pay we'll take it away' normally channel 30 (Blaze ?) and I got 'no signal', so I retuned and I still could not get it. Then I tried 'storage wars' channel 63, again no joy, also wanted to watch Pawn stars without success. What channel can I find these on now please?

Re: Freeview changes

CPWTIA is on channel 31 5STAR from 12:00 tomorrow.
Storage Wars and Pawn Stars are on channel 63 Blaze, starting 19:00 tomorrow.

If you're getting "no signal", you may have a problem with your aerial.

Try re-tuning. No signal usually means they've shifted things about (again )

Re: Freeview changes

New changes on Freeview from 7th December.

"What's changing...
Channel - Channel Number - New Channel Number
Dave Ja Vu 79 > 23
Yesterday+1 75 > 74
CCX TV 23 > 73
Jewellery Maker 73 > 71
Shopping Quarter 74 > 72

Other changes...
Ketchup Channel will be renamed to Ketchup TV"

Source: https://www.freeview.co.uk/help/chan...ges-7-Dec-2020

---------- Post added at 15:18 ---------- Previous post was at 15:05 ----------



For me Dave Ja Vu being moved to 23 and Yesterday remaining at 26 is confirmation that Dave Ja Vu is now a temporary placeholder for a future channel (e.g. maybe Eden going Free-To-Air) as you don't move a +1 with much lower ratings above another of your own Non+1 channels. It's plainly a precursor to a future change.
