I would guess it is how your box handles overspills for channels picked up from another region, though usually it is the 800s.

Would love though for Gems TV and all the shopping channels to be bumped to the 9000s.

BT Showcase HD has shutdown on LCN 115. I don't blame them - nothing was really shown on the channel apart from sports results and loops.

Well, not exactly nothing - Champions League, Europa League and FA Cup football, rugby, tennis, sailing, BT Sport Score and some AMC shows. But the channel closed in April.

Although remained on the EPG and was still showing the barker. They could have shown the CL final on it if they wanted too.

Presumably the bandwidth now goes towards the extra SD Wimbledon channels that will be on the mux.

Worthwhile noting that the first transmitter to lose COM 7 and COM 8 completely following 700 Mhz clearance has been announced - Beacon Hill (Torbay and environs) will see the services shutdown in early 2019. Seemingly international clearance is not available for the site to use the temporary SFNs being established as an interim measure to continue services for a couple more years on those two muxes elsewhere. This doesn't bode well for other sites in the SW due to switch later next year either.
