The BBC4 closure was a proposal a fair few months ago. They'd probably rather not, but they have pencilled it in as something they'll probably be doing?
I have set up my own Freeview EPG lineup - so I did forgot about the BBC Scotland HD and BBC FOUR HD moves.

Re: Freeview changes

Who may get Freeview Channel 57 after Smithsonian Channel closes on January 5th/6th?

*Narrative Capital Partners LLC - due to GREAT! movies, GREAT! tv and GREAT! romance channels being below Channel 57 on Freeview.

*ITV Network Ltd - for ITV4 +1 to sit beside ITV3 and ITVBe +1 channels on Freeview.

*Warner Bros. Discovery - for Quest +1 to move up to higher Freeview slot.

*Gemporia Ltd - for Jewellery Makeror HobbyMaker to move up to higher Freeview slot.

*A&E Television Networks UK - for Blaze to move up to higher Freeview slot.

*CBS AMC Networks UK Channels Partnership - for CBS Reality or RealityXtra to move up to higher Freeview slot.

*That's Television Ltd - for That's TV UK to move up to higher Freeview slot.

*Earth Day Texas - for EarthxTV to move up to higher Freeview slot.

*Talking Pictures TV Ltd - for Talking Pictures TV to move up to higher Freeview slot.

*Media Trust - for Together TV to move up to higher Freeview slot.

*PBS UK - for PBS America to move up to higher Freeview slot.

*Hochanda Global Ltd - for Create & Craft to move up to higher Freeview slot.

I think PBS may do a deal with Paramount to get a 24 hour slot - then give it old slot to Together TV +1 after all Smithsonian Channel do timeshare with Together TV +1 right now on COM5.

Re: Freeview changes

Rumour: UKTV on the move on Freeview from January 6th.

Paramount has sold Smithsonian EPG slot on Freeview (Channel 57) to UKTV for Dave ja vu to move from Freeview Channel 74 on January 5th. [1]

When watching Dave ja vu the on-screen message appeared saying you will have to retune on that date. [2]

If Paramount has also given UKTV it broadcasting slot we may see YESTERDAY +1 going full time on Freeview.

Source: dachse [1], kjhskj75 [2] and DS Forum.

https://forums.digitalspy.com/discus...ment_102079424

https://forums.digitalspy.com/discus...ment_102079583

---------- Post added at 01:38 ---------- Previous post was at 01:13 ----------

Where do UKTV broadcast on Freeview right now;

SDN/COM4:
*Dave ja vu
*Drama

COM5:
*Dave
*Drama +1
*Yesterday +1 (5am - 7am)
*Smithsonian slot (7am - 3am) - New slot from Jan. 5th?

COM6:
*W
*Yesterday

UKTV are telling viewers to retune to carry on viewing Dave ja vu from Jan. 5th - what may happen (here is my own view):

*YESTERDAY may move to Dave ja vu slot on COM4.
*Dave may start using Smithsonian slot - it works broadcast wise.
*W may move to Dave COM5 slot.
*Dave Ja Vu may start using W slot on COM6.
*Yesterday +1 may start using Yesterday slot on COM6.

Re: Freeview changes

I recall you speculating in the summer that all the UKTV channels might eventually end up on Freeview so maybe UKTV buying this slot is part of that long term strategy.

UKTV can reuse it +1 Channels slots on Freeview if they wanted Alibi and GOLD on Freeview that bad.

WBD did drop Quest Red +1 for Quest early this month.

They don't need any more broadcast space on DTT to launch Alibi and Gold, they do if they want Eden as well.

If Nat Geo channels close as rumoured then Eden might get a bump from those nature viewers who don't want Disney+.

I would like to post a correction:

I have now found out that Dave would NOT fit into Smithsonian Freeview slot after all.

*Smithsonian broadcasts from 7am to 3am on Freeview.
*Dave broadcasts from 7am to 4am.

So it wont fix unless Arqiva cut an hour from Together +1 everynight.
