Thankfully Radio Spectrum doesn't respect borders, this'll be done through the ITU and will apply regardless of membership or otherwise of inter governmental groups.

Hypothetically if a 600MHz clearance was proposed in the UK, it's objectives would be all but wrecked by large high powered broadcast towers continuing to operate in Ireland, France, Belgium., Luxembourg, Germany and Denmark.

I doubt it, I would rather surprised if there didn;t it just makes life a bit more easier on the Telecommunication companies.

Surely its bad for telecoms companies as they won't be able to get hold of that bit of spectrum for another 10 years?

I'd have thought the British government would want to sell it to them as early as possible too

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.

There's enough shopping channels on the platform to justify a separate shopping section - however the likes of QVC and Ideal World will be wrangling for their prominent slots.

That should have been done years ago but it won't be mainly thanks to QVC. Also certainly enough channels now for a film genre too.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?

Really do think Quest Red is a terrible brand for the channel it is. It may have the same owners but the content is hardly a spin-off from Quest - indeed Not Quest would have probably been a more accurate brand.

I retuned someone's TV today and said they can get this new channel now called Quest Red… they said "is that an adult channel?"
