For the love of..... Why, why do they keep giving these crap channels a slot on freeview.

Why can't UKTV do a good freeview channel, UKTV Extra perhaps with the best from UK Gold, UK Drama, UK Play, etc.

Afterall the way Top Up TV's going they're going to lose a big chunk of their audience anyway

I have freeview and it just now apears to be clogged up with crap! Smile TV, 2 or 3 quiz channels, 3 or 4 shopping channels, tons of Top up TV anytime channels - A UKTV extra would be good for some nice shows. If it gets any more crappy channels i will thow my top box in the bin!

The only full time gaming channel is ITV Play, Smile TV only broadcasts when UKTV History is off the air overnight, and the TopUp Anytime channels are also broadcast overnight on ABC1/TeleG/TCM and a couple of the other Top Up Channels.

I don't think it's that bad, it's got better considering Ftn binned off Quiz Call from 10.00pm onwards and when the Quiz Call channel closed, I think Five shows it overnight now, but that's the only presence of most gaming shows on Freeview at all.

I don't know which Freeview you're watching but its not the one I'm watching.

I only see one quiz "channel", three Anytime streams, Smile TV after 1am and four shopping channels, two of which start airing "Hi, I'm Brenda Dygraf" and "The Pasta Express" after 1am.
