Freeview removes com8 channels
These channels could be received in about 77% of UK homes. This means there are 15 channels left on com7. According to reports com7 will now continue “for the foreseeable future”
I have once-again aligned the data here on ukfree.tv with the official list of Freeview channels, at https://www.freeview.co.uk/corporate/platform-management/channel-listings

Slight typo there Brian, CBeebies is on 206. You've listed the temporary interim simulcast on COM8 after the retune before COM8 closed.
Also Pick+1 on 92 has gone, it may be in the list and is on the EPG but not broadcasting, see https://www.freeview.co.uk/18-jun-2020-pick-plus-one-channel-change
Based on the information I've been given, COMs 7&8 were never due to close yesterday (your note at the top of the page) as there was no revised licence published agreeing that, as Arqiva wanted a later date. The only licences ever listed recently were a revised one last year in July which still had the 2026 end date
and the new one https://www.ofcom.org.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0034/197197/Mux-E-interim-licence-20200617.pdf
The COM8 closure was a commercial decision https://ukfree.tv/extras/inreplyto/922572 and contains the statement I was given.
