david king: I'm not sure what you mean.

UKTV (see UKTV - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ) is a joint venture with Scripps Networks Interactive, who also run the Food Network.

I like this channel, so I'm glad to see that it's now available all day on Freeview. How did they manage that? Have they got rid of one of the other channels?

Now, if they could just find the space to make Al Jezeera 24/7, I think I'd have every channel I could ever want.

Karen Bray: Have you lost any other channels? Have you checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV? Please provide a full postcode so that we can see which transmitter you're using, where you are in relation to it and your predicted coverage etc.
