Two new Freeview channels - almost everywhere

A nice match between the BBC and Arqiva will provide two full time Freeview channels.

If you are using, or will use a Public Service (small relay) transmitter, please look away now.

For everyone else, the removal of the BBC News Interactive and one Interactive channel has an upside.

The BBC is selling the capacity used by these services to provide two more slots to the commercial market. This means two more channels in areas that have not switched over yet.

At the same time, Arqiva is adding two more full-time video streams (TV channels) over Multiplexes ARQA and ARQB, for those regions that HAVE switched over.

This means, in effect, that as soon as next month there could be two new full-time channels on Freeview.

No doubt it will be ITV3+1 or More4+1+1, but we can hope. Perhaps Yesterday will expand again?



(The most watched non-premium, non-Sky, non-plus-one channels are 0.6%: Living TV; 0.4%: Comedy Central, G.O.L.D., Hallmark, Sci-Fi Channel, Watch; 0.3%: Alibi, Nick Jr, Nicktoons; 0.2%: Boomerang, Bravo, Cartoon Network, Challenge TV, FX, Good Food, Nickelodeon.).

Which two channels would YOU like on Freeview next month?

There needs to be more of a representation of Multiculturalism in the UK from a freeview channel,that represents an ethnic group or groups.
I Think BET UK needs to come to Freeview channel. A Black British Channel that represents BLACK BRITISH/BLACK AFRICAN life and Lifestyles in the UK.
Any channel that represents an ethnic group is very important.
I THink UK GOLD should come to freeview because it represents the sucessfull Golden age of Television.

jb38: I have changed the code to provide 16 different coloured pictures for people who have not yet provided a picture.

This should make it easier to track different people in the same conversation.

Briantist: I've recently been using BCL easyConverter Desktop BCL easyConverter Desktop — PDF to Word Converter — Accurate PDF Converter. to attack Ofcom's PDF files. It says it's PDF-to-Word but it's actually PDF-to-RTF.

I used that, along with Word's Compare Documents feature, to spot the change from Bidston to Sunningdale.

Mike Dimmick: Yes, it's still not quite the same as publishing data in, say, Excel format.

Briantist:(Re:- 7th/08.50pm) Very colourful! albeit that the shade differences between a couple of colours are a tad on the subtle side but perfectly OK for the purpose intended, and is something which should be of great assistance on any occasion where continuity doubts exist when back checking.

jb38: I was trying to provide a subtle collection of symbols... they are allocated to each entered email address so they are the same over each page.

I also fixed a bug on the "all post by" pages which should help - All posts by jb38 | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice .

Briantist: You could use something like Gravatar instead: Gravatar - Globally Recognized Avatars . I admit my identicon is pretty boring, just a few purple triangles in the corners.

Mike Dimmick: I had a look at that, but I think I will stick with the two methods, either set your picture from the "MY SETTINGS" box or specify a Twitter account name.

the new Astra 1N sat has caused many providers in Spain to offer its services (at a price to locals for uk tv) . Am I right in thinking that its position is temporary and that when it is moved to its final place it will no longer carry these services at a usable strength?
