I think Alfie's not massively off the mark in that a PSB only future may well be the way to go.
TV really does need slimming down. Too much quantity than quality in my opinion.
What the ideal number of channels would be is more difficult to assertain.
I've actually been looking into this lately. The amount of channels varies widely from country to country. The largest areas of the United States seem to have even more than we do. Not quite so many channels per mux but many more of them. At the other end, you have some smaller European countries like Cyprus which have a single mux with all the available FTA stations on.
Japan is interesting in that most of the country gets only 7 channels, maybe 8 if they're lucky. All are on their own muxes without subchannels. Not sure why this is because I think the platform they use is capable of more than one channel per mux.
