UK Terrestrial TV on Twitter has confirmed that both Quest Red+1 and That's TV (UK) has been added to COM6.

Quest Red +1 - https://twitter.com/ukdtt/status/1542087913470672897

That's TV UK - https://twitter.com/ukdtt/status/1542087904725532672

Yesterday I did work out that a following will happen tomorrow.

30th. CBS Drama > RealityXtra
30th. Ideal Extra old slot > RealityXtra

30th. CBS Drama old slot > That's TV (UK)
30th. That's TV Music > Classic Hits
30th. CBS Justice old slot > Classic Hits as channel 91

Due to That's TV UK moving to COM6 today (not yet broadcasting) I think that safe to say that Classic Hits moving to COM6 using CBS Justice slot.

With CBS Drama under it new name is set to move to Local Mux tomorrow.

When watching todays PMQs I work out that COM4 (Craft Extra old slot) will still be up for grabs after tomorrow.

All information may change.

14:37 UPDATE.

Re: Freeview changes

Yeah, I was still catching up when I posted that. :-)

Looks like Quest Red +1 is using the RT slot (i.e. the only currently empty COM6 slot) and That's TV UK is only showing a slate on devices it's new to, as it's waiting for the vacancies created by tomorrow's closures.

BBC, Together and That's TV UK all showing slates in new locations and continuing to broadcast on COM7.

I did not know that "That's TV UK" was not broadcasting today on COM6.

So it maybe is waiting for CBS Drama to move to local Mux tomorrow.

But COM4 (Craft Extra old slot) will still be up for grabs after tomorrow.

Re: Freeview changes

Looks like the BBC HD streams on PSB3/BBCB aren't ready, and there's no sign of when "soon" is. They reworded a previous article.

See this blog post.

I just assumed they gave Babestation a wedge of money to change their hours. it's the most obvious answer.

So instead of lowering their fee to allow a channel to stay on Freeview, they're now getting nothing at all!

It might be that Babestation offered an extra hour to PBS to cut costs if they aren't generating enough income from their first hour on air.

Is the slot leased by PBS and sublet to Babestation?

The SDN slot was only recently advertised and was caught up the administration of the old version of Ideal World, that's why they Back Soon slate was still broadcasting up until yesterday.

Clearly though, the market rate for DTT space was too high for those that closed to take it. It's not just SDN that will drive that value, Arqiva's multiplex space will determine it too. We'll see later today how that price has shaped how the remaining TV services, as it's only guesswork until it happens.

Re: Freeview changes

The CBS Justice closure slate reads as follows

"CBS Justice has now closed.
Continue watching more of your favourite shows from out sister channels CBS Reality on channel 67, Legend on channel 41, and RealityXtra on channel 68.
Thank you for watching
."

If there's anything to read into this, it's that it can be noted that CBS Reality is still called a sister channel, despite it keeping the CBS branding. So if Viacom CBS and AMC are ending their joint venture and splitting the assets, they haven't yet. Or the employee who wrote the slate still feels they are part of the family. ;-)

I've also noticed some odd EPG happenings on RealityXtra and CBS Justice. I'll monitor and see if they come to anything.

Re: Freeview changes

I have seen reports that Classic Hits (1am to 7am*) is Timeshare with Quest Red +1 (7am to 1am*) on Freeview COM6.

*Rumour broadcasting times.

My TV says Classic Hits "will be back at 1am".

If true on Reports Freeview still got TWO SLOTS up for up for grabs - An 23 hour one on COM6^ and a 24 hour one on SDN/COM4.

^Information on a COM6 slot may change when Freeview how PBS America is broadcasting their extra hour from - When will Babestation start tomorrow night?

I feel Paramount have sold their share in a channels you have listed to AMC but by a look of things AMC has cut a cost of broadcasting on Freeview by selling their slots on COM6 to That's TV UK and a yet unname broadcaster and moving RealityXtra to local Mux.

I wonder if anything will come of the Brands TV thing that got a license for DTT. I hope not, I can't see a need for another shopping channel, especially when some of them are having to cut costs, and DTT is expensive.

Re: Freeview changes

The updated slate for Classic Hits now has the transmission hours for That's TV UK and itself. They align, so they are sharing a stream.

Also the Horror Bites app is rebranding as Legend. Source: Freesat website, so presumably same on Freeview.

No information on CBS Catch-up Channels UK app.

PBS is moving to CBS Justice old slot to broadcast from 1pm to midnight every day.
