On the Freeview website it says ITV1+1 will launch on 11th Jan 2011 using ITV2+1's Mux2 slot. STV and UTV are launching their own timeshifts but this is unconfirmed. That, as a result ITV2+1 will move to Mux A where it'll be a part-time channel between 7pm til' 4am timesharing with CiTV.

SkullKid: Yes, that is correct. I think this will include Wales, as S4C2 has closed freeing up the "CITV slot".

I am sadly disappointed that ITV2+1 now only airs from 7pm. I use it to catch up in an afternoon and will no longer be able to watch my favourite shows, why did this have to change?

Helen: Because ITV wished it to be so. Why not get a Freeview+ box and you can make your own ITV2+1?

I'm very disappointed that ITV2+1 is no longer available. I watched it whilst cooking tea as we have a small telly in the kitchen or to catch up at lunchtime when I'm not working. It was just convenient! Please bring it back!
