Hi m8, your paranoidism is showing up again :) .
To be honest I would rather be "down there" but the job moved up here from London over 30 years ago and regretfully can not afford to move "down south".
Cheers AF

Life TV has changed frequency, and started testing again, so are likely to rejoin in the next few days on 160.

UKTV Style Gardens are reported testing on 11.817V, symbol rate 27500, fec 2/3. There is speculation they may in fact launch on Monday 21st February.

ITV are planning ITV 4 sometime later this year, it will be targetting the male audience, so this is likely to see the demise of Men & Motors..

Shop Smart will not be returning to 656. Its licence was revoked today

"Ofcom has today revoked the TV license of Shop Smart after failing to communicate with the media regulator.

The Advertising Standards Authority referred Shop Smart to Ofcom in December, after finding the broadcaster in breach of its licence for failing to supply goods to customers in the delivery times it advertised.

Ofcom received nineteen complaints during June and December 2004 from viewers who had ordered goods from Shop Smart but had not received them."

Sit-up the owwners of Bid-up TV & Price-drop TV are in the process of launching yet another "live, dynamic pricing retail channel." No name known yet, but no doubt in a few weeks time, another auction channel selling the usual rubbish will be cluttering up the epg.

That TV have updated their website and it now says "The Channel will be launching later this year" http://www.thattv.co.uk

Well enough people must watch the shopping channels to make them viable. Those channels that are under financed or dont get sufficient viewers soon disappear:
