So it look like AMC is using Reality Xtra 2 to keep Channel 69 open for it to sell.

Who may bid for channel 69?

*UKTV Media Ltd for Dave ja vu with Yesterday +1 moving to channel 74.
*ITV Network Ltd for ITV4 +1 (Moving from channel 89.)
*A&E Television Networks UK for Blaze +1 (Moving from Channel 81)
*Earth Day Texas for EarthxTV (Moving from channel 79)
*Talking Pictures TV Ltd for Talking Pictures TV (Moving from channel 82)
*Media Trust for Together TV (Moving from Channel 83)
*PBS UK for PBS America (Moving from channel 84)
*Hochanda Global Ltd for Create and Craft (Moving from Channel 85)
*That's Television Ltd for Classic Hits UK (Moving from channel 88)

But saying that Channel 69 stop broadcasting in June 2022 - that was over 12weeks.

As far as I know after 12weeks a freeview slot left free goes to a other broadcaster.

So I do not know what in hell is going on.

For all we know AMC deal with Local Mux is up soon and Reality Xtra may use slot.

Re: Freeview changes

Any more left on Freeview? Yes.

DBR is reporting that COM4/SDN has got unusing 1.4Mb/s that enough for:
*COM4/SDN has room to launch up to 10 streaming channels.
*COM4/SDN has room to ONE more SD 24 hour channel.

DBR is reporting that BBC B/PSB3 has got unusing 8.4Mb/s that enough for:
*BBC C/PSB3 has room to launch BBC News HD and up to 2 SD channels.
*BBC C/PSB has room to SIX more SD 24 hour channels.

DBR is reporting that COM4/SDN has got unusing 1.4Mb/s that enough for:
*COM4/SDN has room to launch up to 10 streaming channels.
*COM4/SDN has room to ONE more SD 24 hour channel.

All rest of streams on Freeview are full bar BBC A.

*S4C can move to BBC A in Wales to let E4 launch on SDN in Wales.
*Then E4 can move to SDN in Wales to let GREAT! movies action launch on Freeview in Wales.

All views on this post are my views.

Re: Freeview changes

Mike has confirmed to me The BBC Information Channel will appear on Freeview on November 23rd.

RXTV is reporting that Quest Red +1 will close on November 23rd on Freeview Channel 71

But Alaraby Network will launch on Freeview at same time on channel 279

https://rxtvinfo.com/2022/quest-red-...eeview-changes

Here are my own views:

Quote:
With Quest Red +1 only launching on COM6 on June 30th 2022 - are WBD set to reuse Quest Red +1 slot for one of a following channels:

*Quest is broadcasting on COM4 right now
*Quest +1 is broadcasting on COM5 right now
*Really is broadcasting on COM5 right now
*Quest Red is broadcasting on COM5 right now
*Food Network is broadcasting on COM5 right now

Re: Freeview changes

Quest Red +1 has an on-screen message about the +1 closure, and it's on Freeview's website too, so it's more that RX now.

The only reason for inconveniencing their viewers with a move I can envisage is if it makes more sense financially for all their channels to be with the same multiplex owner. In which case, Quest would move from COM4 to COM6.

Will the then called Discovery did buy that COM4 slot for Quest in late 2008 ahead of it launch in September 2009.

But Discovery or SDN has ever reveal how long is the deal for Quest to be on SDN runs for.

Digital Spy did report on January 6th 2009 that Quest did appear on SDN.

https://www.digitalspy.com/tech/terr...s-on-freeview/

Discovery was set to launch Quest in May 2009 but it was postphone on it launch date until September 2009.

So maybe Quest will move to COM6 in January 2023.

Re: Freeview changes

Been thinking more:

Media Boy UK Views:

Due to Quest Red +1 closing on Wednesday is Freeview channel 71.

Are WBD set to launch a NEW Channel on Freeview?

*In October 2022 Warner Bros Discovery did launch a new free-to-air DTT channel in Italy showing both Movies and TV series from WB library.

https://advanced-television.com/2022...0position%2037

Sorry but I did not see Martin1 post on DS Forum before my post.

Re: Freeview changes

​According to kjhskj75​ on Digital Spy a hidden version of Ch799 on Freeview says this

"Good News!

You do not need to make any changes to continue viewing BBC services

on this equipment.

We would recommend separately checking all satellite reception

equipment you use by tuning to channel 799.​​"

This is bound to change since that's clearly meant for Satellite not Digital Terrestrial.

For information slates regarding HD changes on the platform. Differs depending on your equipment your viewing channel on.

Capital (Ch 724) has moved to COM5 from COM4
Heart (Ch 728) has moved to COM5 from COM4

Quest (Ch 12) has moved to COM6 from COM4.
