I see on Facebook that Sewing Street is now on Sky Channel 670 using Primal Living to broadcast from 8am to 1pm.

I have since found out that Sewing Street is using air time from Primal Living to broadcast on Sky.

Primal Living can also be viewed on Freeview HD Channel from 10pm on Shopping Quarter on Freeview HD Channel 74.

You can also BUY things from Primal Living via Gems TV since 2019.

UPDATE: Companies house is reporting that Primal Living is own by Primal Cure TV who founded by Steve Bennett who also founded Gemporia.

Re: Freeview changes

With the rumours of BBC Three maybe about to relaunch I think the following may happen on Freeview:

-Sony Movies Action may more to new stream or close on Freeview.
-BBC Scotland SD may move to SDN using Sony Movies Action slot.

-Move local TV Channels (Made TV or That's TV) to channel 51.

---------- Post added at 20:43 ---------- Previous post was at 19:23 ----------

Media Boy HQ now thinks that the following may happen:

-Pick TV and Blaze will become one called Pick TV
-Blaze slot on Freeview will be reuse for Sky Arts to launch on Freeview

Re: Freeview changes

There's no need.

BBC Scotland SD on Freeview doesn't use BBC3's old space, they added another stream to launch it. CBBC added 2 hours to its broadcast hours when BBC3 closed (with the exception of Scotland for the HD version). So they would just reverse that change, or start at 9pm (except in Scotland for HD).

Only the HD version of BBC Scotland uses ex-BBC3 stream space, that's why it starts at 7pm on Freeview.

They later configured all regions of the BBC SD Freeview multiplex the same way as Scotland, so there's space for another stream everywhere outside of Scotland.

Do you think S4C will move to the BBC Mux so that Sony Movies Action can launch in Wales on SDN?

Yeah, makes sense given how involved BBC is with S4C these days. And there was no obvious reason to implement the same multiplex configuration in other regions unless they had a plan for the space or it somehow saves them money.

Someone, I forget who (so I can't credit them unfortunately), told me they'd need to get the rules for the BBC SD multiplex changed to allow them to do it. The HD multiplex (BBC-B) has rules that allow commercial channels, hence Channel 3 HD/Channel 4 HD/Channel 5 HD and TBN SD.

Some people think closing the Red Button Text Service, as they were planning before it was postponed, would allow space for yet another stream. So in theory, if they got the rules changed, they could rent one space to a commercial broadcaster (two if a broadcaster didn't mind being not being in Wales and Scotland) and earn a little money. 98% coverage would be attractive, especially as it wouldn't be limited to HD tuners.

But it's all just theory for now. None of it may ever happen.

Re: Freeview changes

Looks like CCXTV is actually going to launch on April 15th.

Not what I was expecting content-wise. :-)

Re: Freeview changes

​So CCXTV is apparently swapping with Create & Craft on Channel 23 on Freeview.

I have an official Twitter account thanks to @RXTVlog.

The @CCXTV1 account mentions the channel number and has this show preview reel.

Re: Freeview changes

Thanks SonicMaster. I wonder where Sony Movies and Trans World Radio moving to. Seems odd to do it in current circumstances.

I really dislike the phrase "Are changing the way they broadcast". I wish Freeview wouldn't use it.

---------- Post added at 13:05 ---------- Previous post was at 11:12 ----------

Further details, according to @ukdtt on Twitter.

Sony Movies moved from COM5 to COM6

Yesterday+1 launched on COM5

Trans World Radio moved from COM7 to COM 5

Re: Freeview changes

Yesterday+1 is only 5am-7am at the moment looking through the EPG. This is same hours as the vacant stream that NOW 70s occupies on the same multiplex. Probably a coincidence as there is space for it to have a full stream on this multiplex. It could be Y+1 is just a placeholder for now, it's only showing Teleshopping during those hours so it's not a useful addition currently.

Re: Freeview changes

Sources for the following are a mixture of @ukdtt on Twitter and Freeview's own website.

4Music and 4Seven have moved to COM5 from COM6 but nothing more, their channel numbers are the same and so should their coverage areas be the same.

Planet Knowledge (265) and Sports Channel Network (266) are merging into On Demand 365 on channel 265.

Ketchup (211) and Yaaas! (212) are merging into Ketchup/Yaaas! on 211.

Spotlight TV, which was on the Manchester multiplex only, is to stop broadcasting on Freeview. So channel number 87 will become available. It's still available as a streaming channel on Freeview I believe though, on a different number.
