Regarding the note on the COM7 & COM8 multiplexes:
"Being removed from Freeview (for 5G use) by 30 June 2020"

The website has an article which says that OFCOM has pushed back the auction of the 700MHz spectrum:
"Temporary Freeview multiplexes COM7 and COM8 can continue broadcasting without any risk that telecoms operator with a licence to use the 700MHz can serve notice on Arqiva's use of the frequencies"

TV frequency sale pushed back to the end of the year - RXTV Info | RXTV log

I've Googled for some other posts to verify this, particularly on OFCOM's site, but not found any evidence. The next to useless Freeview website has plenty of out of date information, but nothing about this "stay of execution" - I guess we will know when the notifications start appearing on our TV sets and PVRs!
