Oh my word - multiple changes on Freeview occurring thanks to Quest Red's launch, some that I did not expect.

First up, what was announced before today...
Quest Red on LCN 38 (COM5)
Quest+1 moved to LCN 92
Tiny Pop moved to Local Mux
True Movies reduced hours from 9pm to 5am
Kix reduced hours from 5am to 9pm
TruTV now broadcasts from 3am to midnight
CBS Action+1 on LCN 90 (COM7)

And changes that have been occurred just now:
CBS Drama moved to COM6
TJC Choice on LCN 93 (COM6)
Colors HD on LCN 114 (COM8)

The addition of TJC Choice on LCN 93 raises questions. Only 1 LCN left in the General Entertainment section, and with the decision to choose which future option to take on the EPG looming away, will Digital UK be pressed harder to push forward with a reshuffle?

I'm retuning both my Freeview TV and YouView box as today is the retune date.

Looking at the channel list via the Freeview website arguably there could/should be a new category for shopping channels, and be moved to a separate section (e.g. channel 150 onwards). There appears to be at least 10 shopping channels currently. I can't help feeling there needs to be a shake up of the 'entertainment' section channel numbers, as currently it's a bit of a mess and not particularly easy to find channels.

Some of those changes just seem pointless. A good number of people have now lost tiny pop and True movies. TruTV now broadcasts from 3am to midnight Whats the point in that? also what are there going to do with that channel it needs overhauling fast.
Is the next post dreaded?
