What happened with PSB2 on switchover? Originally D3+4 was something like 49.5% ITV and Channel 4 with the remaining being Teletext's. Now they've gone and Channel 5 were given a place. How is it managed and carved up now?
From memory, PSB2 housed the main ITV and Channel 4 services and their offshoots as part of the obligation for their licence. Channel 5 managed to gain a slot - by virtue of gaining maximum coverage by switchover.
Teletext's removal, and other Text services (including the defunct Rabbit services) and Heart were moved to COM4, freeing up further space for an extra two streams (for Film4 and ITV4).
For the record, ITV's half of course has ITV/+1/2, as well as having Channel 5 to maintain maximum coverage as I've mentioned. ITV4 gained prominence over ITV3 thanks to the various sporting events it shows.
Channel 4 and it's more popular offshoots fill the remaining half of PSB2 as usual.
