Someone like Manhattan or Humax might make a box. I'm quite pleased by this development as the number of hotels and BnBs I've stayed in with poor TV reception is disappointing and this might help them in the future.

Possibly but they can't even get enough stock of their current models onto the market. Heaven knows how many years it could take them to design and produce new models.

I wonder if sister channel Jewellery Maker will also relaunch on Virgin Channel 756 with HobbyMaker HD?

Yes, the lack of technical details from Everyone TV makes it difficult to determine exactly what Freely will involve. At the moment it seems to involve DVB-I, so perhaps new tuning sequences will be required, as is the case with the BBC IP channels on Freeview Play.

The difficulty of retro-fitting extra tuning stages and the possible need for more powerful processors, different memory requirements etc probably mean that it will only be added to new TVs.

Re: Virgin TV (2024)

I assumed that the internet was needed to receive the FAST streaming channels, but it's been said that on Virgin they are converted into regular DVB-C broadcast channels. Is this correct and can they be accessed without the internet?

No, if the internet is down, they won't load any further than their launch slates on traditional cable. Obviously, if internet services are down, stream devices won't be very useful at all.

Not entirely unexpected. The "Talk" rebranded local TV channels will now have to scramble for replacement filler content. A return of Judge Judy perhaps?

It's the Ofcom way, send a stern letter and then do nothing. They should have taken action years ago.

I imagine the Government leant on them to take a Softly Softly approach to save them from embarrassment.

Now, with a General Election fast approaching where the Tories are likely to lose, they feel more confident in doing something about it.
