Why did it fall off?


"Channel 5 is currently ineligible to broadcast listed events, as Ofcom deems that its My5 streaming services serve an insufficient number of platforms"

Presumably by constantly promoting My5, it indicates that it will launch on more platforms (and by extension, they will get the ability to bid for the crown jewels again)

Wasn't it added back on 4 October 2019?

Looks like it, seems the Wikipedia page needs to be updated because it links to a dead link stating it currently isn't.

Pretty much all the broadcasters mention their catch up service when promoting their shows.

Or in the case of the BBC it's in reverse, they mention their show when promoting their catch up service. Very Happy

Peter Lane was supposed to be in Manchester not Leeds. Looks like a last minute issue, 5news’ Twitter mentioned it about 20 minutes before 5pm and even the announcement over the preceding ident mentioned it was “from Manchester”
