Personally, I doubt it'll speed anything up. Most of these "swaps" & changes are usually pretty minor channels.
As far as the broadcaster is concerned it's all about economics!

Well they lost a viewer in me and everyone else affected by the swap. A 'minor' channel that people enjoyed so it is ok to bin it? That is good business!! Like I said I don't watch TV anymore. I only see things in passing. It is easier to acquire a series that I want to watch and watch it all without adverts or channel shutdowns.

TV watching is going to die. We used to get HD on freeview. It was 13 channels now It is 7 I think. So what is the point of Freeview? If you want to see an old show, watch it elsewhere.

Well if they had a larger audience for RaelirtExtra it makes commercial sense. Carriage on the Local mux will be cheaper than SDN.
The former HD multiplexes COMs7&8 were only ever temporary multiplexes, until the frequencies were ready to be sold to mobile operators. They did stimulate and interest in HD. I think we are all disappointed that none of the other commercial multiplexes have converted to HD.

If you have a Smart TV then a number of HorrorXtra programmes are available on the CBSCatchUp/Legend apps.

If you sell something for a living, then you want to keep your customers happy and returning. Selling off frequencies and shrinking availability is retarded. When the Gov want more money, they will sell off more and more. TV will be NetTV (spyware). That is the future of TV. I spend more time watching people argue on Youtube, Rumble, Odysee, etc than watching any TV show. That is far more entertaining. So whether you want to believe it, TV is on its death bed and the providers know it. People were watching Farscape and boom!! channel gone. HorrorXtra web site is broken and you cannot complain to them. It seems like they don't care. They like pulling this trick so people will avoid getting invested in shows on Freeview. I am sure I am not alone.

I have a PC and will never buy a 'smart' anything to spy on me. So if TV goes 'catchup' you can count me out.
Nice talking to you Chris. More entertaining than TV. lol.

The frequency sell-off was a result of International agreements regarding the use of the frequencies, it had nothing to do with the "Gov wanting more money"
So you think Smart TVs are Spyware :D :D you sound as paranoid as a friend of mine, so I'd stop using your PC ! You can actually turn off most of the "tracking" type things on your smart TV.
You can derlet cookies as well as not allow some.

Horror website working for me Legend | Sky 148 Virgin 149 Freeview 41 Freesat 137 you can watch many of their programmes on-line there.
They also have 4 different Social Media "outlets" although if you are bothered about spyware then I'd stay clear of Facebook & Instagram as Meta are worse than Google :D
