    Sorry - the modifications haven't been put online yet - I've been waiting for any feedback about errors and additional requests to die down ;)

    Hopefully in the next day or so, the first proper release 9.4.1 will go online with suggestions included.

    May I respectfully point you to my post of 10/10/2007 (913) in which I pointed this out. MTV Hits had a typo in the filename, plus a couple of other points?

    Obviously, some channel names etc might have changed in the meantime.

    Could these sky digital channels be considered please?
    253 SRELIV Sky Real Lives
    254 SRELIVP Sky Real Lives Plus One Hour
    255 SRELIV2 Sky Real Lives 2

    Made a request in #983, but think that was about the time of your house move. As additions are all a favour by you aerialplug to all of us, it didn't feel right requesting again before this new release was made. Many thanks.

    What about DMAX? (and Dmax + 1)?

    are there icons for these anywhere?

    Okey - I'm hoping to get the next release out in the next couple of days with the bug fixes (hopefully) and (possibly) the Freeview distro too.

    Can anyone let me know (Ozsat, I think you're the best person for this...) if the call signs are different for Freesat for any channels? Hopefully not - and if this is the case the sat distribution will do for Freesat too.

    Nothing yet then? (Still 1.9.4, May 12th) on your site :D

    Are you doing a new "BBC News" logo?

    Also, "Blank type 2 Logo with purple mask" is missing from your 'DIY Logos' section ;)


    ETA: Will these two do the job? I only pasted them onto the existing (old) NEWS24 logos.
    ETA2: Damn! "Wrong File Format". Oh well. Never mind!

    I note that its a pay channel and not even FTV. Surely this isn't in line with C4's long terms strategy on digital terrestrial, digital satellite and cable?:confused:

    Shocked :eek: After seeing their ad for the upcoming channel probably half a dozen times, I had no idea at all it was a pay channel. They certainly keep that fact quiet in the ads.

    Well its pay at the moment on Sky/Astra but I can't see how that makes sense if one of their main likely target markets is Freesatters. I haven't tried rescanning the old OnDigital DTX 6370 to see if its free or even available at all on Freeview.

    Obviously TMF and The Hits are free on Freeview and pay on Sky but that is for legacy related contractual reasons. I can's see why C4 would start a new music channel on satellite that is pay from the outset. That seems to go against the whole direction of their current corporate strategy. Especially when loads of other music channels at 28 degrees East are FTA.

    Really? As far as I know, 4Music has replaced 'The Hits' on Sky and VM, so assume that's why it's 'pay' on those platforms and not on Freeview.

    What has that got to do with it?

    The channel is now branded 4Music so therefore one would expect it to follow the corporate positioning of any other channel broadcast by the Channel 4 stable i.e. FTA/FTV.

    Changing it from pay to FTA or FTV is the flick of a switch in technical terms (although not obviously in contractual terms) so if its still pay then it should have not been rebranded 4Music.

    4Music is not owned by Channel 4. It's owned by BoxTV, which these days is a 50:50 joint venture between Channel 4 and Bauer Media (my employer). As Carl rightly points out, it is a re-branded and re-launched version of The Hits. Any contracts with Sky will almost certainly pre-date Channel 4's invlovement in BoxTV.

    Why not?

    Well...

    I guess it's a term of the contract that's stopping them going FTA.

    Ahh. That bit I didn't realise. I wondered what had happened to TH :)

    @Benedict. I assume then, that C4's buying of a 50% stake in "The Hits" came with the condition of a re-branding? Just my guess.

    I don't know the answer to that, although I imagine it would be unlikely. When Emap sold their 50% of BoxTV to C4 just over a year ago The Hits was the UK's most watched music TV channel and you don't rebrand something like that without serious consideration of the consequences.

    The BoxTV joint venture is more than just The Hits though. It includes the Smash Hits, Kerrang!, Kiss, Magic, Q and The Box TV channels.
