I think the fact it has happened on the same day the EBU have announced they've secured the UHF spectrum for the purpose of terrestrial TV for the foreseeable future, with terrestrial TV expected to continue into the 2030s across the EU, says it all.
The case simply hasn't been made for closing the channel, halving the budget and spending £6m of what's left of it on short form content well catered for by Youtube etc. rather than on actual programming, while £30m goes on making more middle aged drama for BBC1.
It's been clear from the outset the public consultation was nothing more than procedure being follow and respondents being ignored.
