Freeview Multiplex closure

Looks like COM7, COM8 or both are closing. The following page from the Freeview website doesn't specify.

Important channel broadcast changes
From 22 June 2020 changes are being made to the way some channels are currently broadcast.

Following a decision by Ofcom to make more bandwidth available for mobile data, and after discussions with channels impacted, the transmitter operator Arqiva has chosen to stop transmitting services on some specific airwaves.

Unfortunately, this means some +1 and HD TV services will be closing. Given the nature of these channels, Freeview viewers won’t lose access to any specific content, and can continue watching main channels and access HD content via on demand services such as All4 and My5 via Freeview Play.

There's more on that Freeview announcement page. Either I didn't scroll enough or it's been added.

ADDED Looks like just one of the Temp Multiplexes is closing.

The following channels will cease broadcasting from Monday 22 June 2020:

Channel name Channel number

Channel 4+1 HD 109
4Seven HD 110
TJC HD 115
5Star+1 55
5USA+1 56
CBS Reality+1 67
CBS Justice+1 69

I saw the on screen information last night on Forces TV when I was watching it and I can confirm it look like COM8 will be axe from June 22nd.

I have worked out the following slots will be like this from June 22nd

Was > From June 22nd
Channel 4+1 HD > QVC HD & QVC Beauty HD
4Seven HD > CBeebies HD & BBC Four HD
TJC HD > Quest HD
5Star+1 > Freespots
5USA+1 > NOW 80s
CBS Reality+1 > Together TV +1
CBS Justice+1 > PBS America +1
N/A > Forces TV (NEW SLOT)

Other web sites are reporting that Shopping Quarter is moving to an new slot on BBC B (The mux with BBC One HD on it)
