Two new Freeview channels - almost everywhere
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?
If Alibi was on NOW TV my viewing pleasure would be even more forthcoming, or if Freeview ditched all those tacky Porn channels and the others only shopaholics and sados watch even better, the trouble with SKY TV is you have to pay over and over for same old repeats and godawful MTV crapola, if they had a package whereby you can really pick and choose the channels you watch as an individual, in my case that would mean no SKY1 or 2, W , MTV, and the others. I would far rather watch Alibi on Freeview than Drama channel
