Nedbod: There are two differnet things going on. There is a "over the whole broadcast day average" which is the smaller value.

There is also a "peak time maximum" which is the larger value.

ITV, for example, can broadcast no adverts during the night or daytime and use the time saved to boost the minutes during the valuable peak time.

Hello, Brian. I was just wondering if you had any idea what channel or type of content is going to appear on Channel 45. Thanks in advance. Dave A.

David Anderson: Arquiva, due to their monopoly poisition in the market, are require to offer the slot to the higest bidder.

Therefore it could be any content, which may also include encrypted content (such as Sky Sport 3, for example).

I suspect that making the slot visible will assist them with the launch of whatever channel that wins the auction, without having to wait for everyone to retune.

john: No. If you want to pause/play/record you have to swap the Sky+ box for a Freesat+HD box. This is a very simple thing to do.

Nedbod. (Amount of adverts on a channel)

The shopping channels, (EG. QVC, Price-Drop TV, TV Shop, Pitch TV etc.)
seem to get away with 60 minutes of adverts per hour.

Mark Agius: Technically speaking these channels show no adverts at all, as "adverts" are "spot adverts" which are paid for by third parties during programmes.

The shopping channels therefore are spot-ad-free.

I kid you not!
