Further to the previous post, Drama +1 has now replaced CCXTV on terrestrial platform Freeview, retaining channel number 73.
Speculation was that CCXTV was created to allow for eventual transfer of what was Create & Craft’s high EPG number of 23 to another channel. While this does appear to have been the case, unlike Merit which allowed a high position to transfer from ITV to Sky, CCXTV ran a near full time service, and had an active presence on social media.
The channel re-numbers have also taken place, but are far more extensive than previously reported. The full changes are summarised below.
|Channel||New EPG No.||Old EPG No.||Multiplex|
|Now 70s||75||78||Greater Manchester|
|Now 90s||78||84||Greater Manchester|
|Clubland TV||79||82||Greater Manchester|
|Together TV +1||83||88||COM7|
|PBS America +1||87||93||COM7|
|Country Music Entertainment||88||98||Greater Manchester|
