I am a Western fan why does 5USA keep showing the same Westerns over and over. Can you explain why?

Mike: I suspect that the issue is that the buget for the channel is limited.

Most of the recent programming ends up on pay channels for several years.

Only older programmes are cheap enough for free-to-air play.

Hello why is it that USA+1 goes of air from
2am to 4am usually in the middle of a programme ?

Margaret-ann Ellmers: Because it shares its capacity on Freeview with another channel which broadcasts during those hours.

Margaret-ann Ellmers: Because the channel is run by people who have no regard for you the viewer.

They are engaging in a practice often described as LCN squatting.

To keep its channel number - LCN - a channel must transmit for at least two hours a day.

In this case:

56 5USA+1, Sun 08 Apr 02:00 - 04:00: Programmes start at 4am


57 5Spike+1, Sun 08 Apr 02:00 - 03:00: Bellator 197: Budapest

57 5Spike+1, Sun 08 Apr 03:00 - 04:00: Thieves & Thugs: Caught On Camera

That being today's requisite two hours for 5Spike+1.
