Based on Total Channels in box settings or Digital Bit Rate?

I didn't notice anything on the latter earlier.

Any particular reason you mentioned Scotland specifically? You don't normally mention regional information when telling us of these sort of things.

It occurred to me, since I couldn't think of any other possibilities, that maybe the 4 channels could be the missing Channel 4 HD advertising regions?

It's obviously not the temporary BBC Red Buttons as there's 6 of those and you've already mentioned those.

Bit of a cheeky set-up charge of 30 too, but they do give you AMC as well as Now TV.

It was on Total Channels.

I only say Scotland due to some Virgin Media areas maybe higher as in Scotland.

Virgin do not carry That's TV Scotland on Channel 159.

Or the ITV alternative regional variation in select regions on Channel 870/871.

That's the Future of TV thread.
Now it all makes sense. In future I'll read that thread substituting the word "sausages" for "streamers". "Linear TV will be completely replaced by sausages in twenty-something five" said Mr Punch. Hmm!

They'll prob just change the name temporaily on SSAction or SSArena to promote the boxing more.
Similar as they do for cricket, golf etc.
