Supposed to be episode 1 followed by episode 2 so perhaps a transmission error if the same episode went out twice.

I thought that it was meant to be two different episodes, as advertised. Went out with the exactly the same ident also.

No it wasn't, it was founded over 20 years ago.

They started broadcasting a full schedule 19 years ago.

Watching the animated films countdown on the channel earlier and it was a bit jarring how they seemed to just abruptly leave the show, flash a quick Channel 5 logo and then in to the adverts. No, "coming up" or "see you in part 2" etc. (which in itself is kind of a relief as I hate them and the "before the break" sections that just waste time) and no break bumper to give the show name or anything, just wham, bam! and that's it. I don't know if I like that style or not...

Channel 5 HD currently testing albeit hidden on BBC-B Mux on Freeview. Launch can't be far away.

They've also added Freesat data to their satellite stream, so a shift to free-to-air seems imminent too.

Looks like the test transmission isn't different from Channel 5 HD that is around all ready, Maybe waiting for a programme to launch the channel.
