More channels left TVPlayer last weekend.

Colors, Rishtey, News 18, Nickelodeon, NickJr and NickJr Too.

The kids and Premium+ package have been scrapped for one paywall package at £6.99pm.

The general Viacom pay channels are still on the platform.

If you look at the list, excluding the Universal Music channels, these are pretty niche services. BBC Alba, Together and S4C probably had periods of nobody watching them, yet there's hosting costs for those channels.

Just had a look around. I'm sure it's an error but allegedly needing to subscribe to watch Citv wont go down well. I'm also wondering about their agreement with the BBC. Surely their, the BBC's. universal access and platform specific distribution rules, which should have been included in such a document are being broken by removing BBC Alba and more critically BBC Parliament and BBC Red Button from the TVPlayer service.

CITV is behind the paywall.

I don't think TVPlayer has ever had BBC Scotland either?

Surely TV Player isn't a big enough part of the landscape to fall under that, and even if it was any platform TV Player is available on the BBC iPlayer streams are available on anyway.

Aren't Freeview relaunching their app to have live streams of the main PSBs in one place?
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.
