Hey peeps! The BBC in co-operation with ITV is planning a new FTA service this includes 24 channels (i dont know if that number includes the standard 1-5) and 3 b$kyb channels (FTA??) I also know that Channel 4 have placed a bid, although as yet i cant find out what type of service they will be offering. Just thought that those of us who havent abandoned the DTT service might be interested! have fun :) :)

Any idea what the sky influence might be - I have heard it will all be FTA, and that's very un-sky!!
