Looks like the place holder is up on DTT now, with no EPG or channel number mapped.

SID - 1407
VPID - 556
APID - 606

Good stuff - which mux is that on?

It's one to keep an eye on, chances are it'll run a promo loop not long after the schedule announcement on Monday.

Stickman779: Is this UHF exclusive/Will it be on satellite?


Only on UHF at the moment, there has been a demand to make it nationwide, costs make it impossible for Choice TV to be on sat right now .

Cool, so it's on Kordia mux then, as you'd expect.. I see there's more details out on their Facebook page.

Someone asked "Any idea when you'll be testing (or putting a promo loop) on Freeview?"

ChoiceTV's response: "we are likely to be doing that in a week's time. Stay tuned!"

That place holder won't be a place holder for much longer, it seems....

Yep, the PIDs are active per openmedia just no channel id etc yet.

From ffmpeg:

Are you getting other non-freeview channels? Feeds or test signals, could be for Igloo
