Re: Freeview channel renumbering and hours changes

With TBN moving to BBC HD (If you can get BBC One HD you will get TBN) that will be TWO slot on COM5 free - with E4 +1 being the other one.

Here hoping Freesports pick up one of them.

Our pick for the two free slots from Thursday is Forces TV and Freesports.

---------- Post added at 15:25 ---------- Previous post was at 15:22 ----------

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

-Old E4+1 slot on COM5
-Old TBN UK slot on COM5 - slot will be free from December 5th.
-More4 +1 old slot on PSB3 - TBN UK to move to slot on December 5th.

All information right as of December 3rd.

Re: Freeview channel renumbering and hours changes

Personally I'd rather it was Smithsonian Channel and Freesports. ForcesTV has less new content.

In other Freeview matters, if Sewing Quarter closes I can see either PBS America extending its hours (to either SQ's start of 8am or the available space of 5am) or Jewellery Maker ensuring it has a slot off the temporary multiplex it's on. JM is going back to its original owner, the same as GemsTV, so they may just move JM content onto GemsTV when the temporary multiplexes close. A 5am/8am-1pm slot doesn't lend itself to many obvious occupants, so PBS America expanding their newly acquired slot is probably the most likely outcome.

Maybe SQ slot (Reports say Sewing Quarter will close by December 25th) on Freeview is being sold to Gems TV as part of deal for JM to use. And PBS will stay as now

Reasonably likely that will happen with SQ. I'd rather PBS America extended, but the GTV/JM is marginally more likely.

As for Forumbox, maybe a few hours, I certainly saw it working ewrlier today.

We're currently moving servers so we'll be off air for hopefully a short time.
