It looks like some smart TV owners are not smart enough to use all the features they have payed for, or know they exist on their TV.

The Scottish issue.
BBC One Scotland local news at 6:00pm

Why can't they show it to BBC Alba? (On all Scotland transmitters)

Still leaves a problem with BBC1 Northern Ireland and Wales thou.

"I am going to make a guess that this is going to please all the readers of UK Free TV."
You can never please everybody, but just hope to please as many as possible.

As there is no 'ITV Encore' page on this website yet, I am posting this here.

ITV Encore starting on 9/06/2014.
Sky EPG channel 123.

Don't know but expect it is also on Free Sat From Sky (Sky non prescription with card)

Channel is encrypted, so will not be on Freesat.

See; ITV Encore

10832 Horizontal 22000-5/6 HD/encrypted

See; Eutelsat 28A & Astra 2A/2E/2F at 28.2?E - LyngSat

I am still waiting for the 360' screen. With a display in the ceiling and floor as well.
I will call it bubble TV.

Just a small note about channel sharing:
BBC3 is shared with cBBC and BBC4 is shared with CBeebies. (Not CBeebies with BBC3)
BBC3 HD is shared with cBBC HD
The above channels are transmitted on all transmitters.
BBC4 HD is shared with CBeebies HD and only transmitted onsome main transmitters that transmit the Com 7 frequency.

This transmitter dose transmit Com 4, com 5 and com 6, twice as many as the national network.
They get 3 versions of ITV1, 3 versions of Channel 4, but no ITV3, ITV4, More4, Five star, etc.

The only channel you don't get is Al Jazeera (A news channel) all the other channels you get in SD or 1 hour earlier.
