Is it just me or did the Christmas music 'pop up' channels last a lot longer than normal this time around?

I'm sure they usually give up well before New Year, but both Boxmas and Christmas Starz lasted past epiphany.


Christmas Starz didn't revert back until the 7th, but the EPG is still listing Christmas programming, which isn't much of a surprise really, given that the listings for the Trace channels are all over the place (the EPG listings still don't match the DOG on Trace Urban, for example).

Also, the interactive service on Starz hasn't returned, so it looks like it may never return now.

The Starz website hasn't been updated, and is still saying that the interactive service will be returning in the Autumn (2019).

Does anyone have a capture of Home changing to HGTV?

Home went into teleshopping and opened again as HGTV, no announcements either side. Quite the non-event.

I still have TCC listed on one of my smart TV’s. Is this a newer version of the community channel?

Yes and no.

It's essentially a 2 hour simulcast of Blaze to fill the slot and keep the licence for A+E Networks.

Would A+E not be better to launch Lifetime on Freeview? It seems like it doesn't get much attention now being shunted down to the bottom of the Entertainment EPG on Sky. It doesn't offer much as a pay channel.

This would be quite a good idea - Lifetime in the US has literally just got a new logo, so if they wanted to they could tie that into a free-to-air relaunch.

Lifetime seems to get a new logo every year.

That logo seems to give me Diet Coke vibes.
