However, to make way for the new TV channel, Freeview radio listeners in Scotland will no longer be able to listen to ten BBC Radio stations: Radio 1, Radio 2, Radio 3, Radio 4, 4 Extra, 5 Live Sports Extra, World Service, Asian Network, Radio Scotland and Radio nan Gaidheal whilst BBC Alba broadcasts, but 1Xtra, 5 Live and 6 Music will continue as normal. Most of the removed services can be listened to on AM and FM, and they all continue as normal on cable and satellite.
Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond will front a "Open Your Eyes" campaign to promote the service, which also carries English subtitles.
But they have to loose 13!!!Scottish Station Just to Add 1= more Station???
Due to no room at the inn to Slot THE Extra
Station (into MUX BBC A..)CAN THEY NOT PAY THE MONEY FOR AN UPGRADE?? more room
OR Buy/Rent LARGER SIZE MUX A. WHEN THEY BOUGHT OR RENTED THAT INADIQUITE SIZE IN THE 1ST PLACE??

The multiplexes are a fixed bandwidth of 24Mb/s, and this can't be changed.
The concept of a "slot" is unhelpful, as the services are statistically multiplexed together, which allows dynamic manipulation of the video compression parameters of several video streams to provide for the maximum bandwidth efficiently on a moment-to-moment basis.
BRIANTIST.But don't have a Video!!That was a very good answer indeed.More technobellia
And now u want me 2take a we coarse on how Digital TV Works.Im All capacitated out& not that Hot on multiplexen or fxing bandwidths.and u you now fine you got me ON Th Dynamics of Parameters? nice one!!

It's not as if I listen to Radio on a TV (I've got a USB digital TV tuner, so I'd just use iPlayer if I wanted to listen to Radio on my laptop), but for those with TVs, who maybe like to listen to radio over freeview, it does seem a little funny that they knock out Radio nan Gaidheal to put up BBC Alba...
I wonder how freeview reception compares to DAB reception in areas where they speek Gaelic, or whether everyone just has a satellite?
Radio nan Gaidheal is available on FM. It is also available on the Central Scotland regional DAB ensemble, and on a number of local ensembles, but it is not on the BBC National Radio ensemble. The ensembles have to be identical on all transmitters that carry them, and BBC National Radio (12B) is carried across the entire country, from Dover to Eitshal on Lewis.
