Has That's TV (UK) done a deal with Ideal World administrators to buy Ideal World slot of Channel 51 on Freeview?

List below is my own views on what may happen from August 23rd on Freeview to That's TV Network of channels:

*That's 70s may broadcast from 7am to 10am
*That's 90s (Or any other That's Channel) may timeshare until 12am on IW old stream
*That's 80's may get new hours of 3am to 9am
*That's TV (UK) being a 24 hour channel on Freeview

Re: Freeview changes

Well they certainly scared away the competition on the Manchester GIMUX. Only That's TV and TV Warehouse channels on there now. TV Warehouse can't be making many sales with such a small coverage area. I can't see That's TV covering the costs from advertising either and as they aren't selling capacity to any mainstream third party broadcasters now, I wonder how long it will last.

*GREAT movies +1 now 10pm to 4am
*GREAT romance +1 now 10pm to 4am
*ITV3 +1 has gone back to 9pm to 4am

That would be interesting at the weekend...

At the moment the Great +1s are a joke

Great! TV goes off-air for a couple of hours overnight to give a 2 hour slot to Great! Movies +1 but continues showing the Great! TV scheduled programmes.

Great! Movies goes off-air to give a 2 hour slot to Great! TV +1 but continues with the Great! Movies schedule.

Great! Romance makes way for Great! Romance +1, again, continuing with the Great! Romance schedule

So the +1s don't actually show +1 content and not necessarily even the correct channel in the service name. What a mess!
