The channel frequently has themed nights or seasons in which a number of films centred around one genre, director or actor are shown.

Film4 +1 and More4 +1 have been removed from the PSB multiplexes a weeks or two ago.
Dose any one know if they will add any new channels to replace them or are they sh?rinking the size of PSB multiplexes to make more room for more mobile phones?

Mark A.: As you know, E4+1 replaced Film4+1 on D3&4 so there was no capacity change there.

As far as BBC B, dog nose! Bring BBC Three back? Do the decent thing and put BBC FOUR HD/ CBeebies HD on it? Not likely!

Weren't they trying to sell the spare capacity? Maybe Smithsonian Channel or PBS America could dump their TWO sub-Standard Definition channels and go HD on this.

On the other hand, BBC, like Channel 4, seems to delight in transmitting Null Packets by the ton, so maybe nothing will change.

It's shown on this page:

Scroll down to BBCB-PSB3-MENDIP. It's listed as "NEW (sans nom - PID20160)" and links to:

It occurred to be after posting that although TBN moving to PSB3 with transmissions which reach a greater part of the country, how many people who watch might have HD tuners? They may end up with a bit of blaspheming and smaller coverage !

Oh and as usual Freeview not giving any detail in their status update, like clarify that TBN moves to PSB3 and Yaaas listing will be on SDN, just the same as the lack of detail when Film 4+1, E4+1 etc moved.
And Channel listings | Freeview has not been updated with the changes at time of posting! Me thinks they need a swift kick up the ....
