Fenton is a relay of Sutton Coldfield. As it only relays the signal; there's no facility to insert a different service, and it would be too costly to re-engineer the current regional structure of...

But the MHEG that acts as a gateway to the streams is broadcast via DTT.

Freeview counts the streamed channels as part of its service, and the Freeview name licenced to streamed channel operators.

The SDN/COM4 slot that itv4+1 uses is ITV's anyway. Not because they're the multiplex owner, but because it is one of three 24hr slots they hold on SDN. It makes no commercial sense to rent extra...

A term used in the Sky forum for this is "EPG squatting". Chrisy explained the reasons why ITV are doing so upthread. No different to what UKTV are doing on channel 25, IMO.

Yes, given the number of digital radio stations that have gone mono, this is a refreshing change.

Or be MHEG-IC based like 181?

Digital UK show that it isn't available in Wales, so could CSC be dropping a few overnight hours of True Entertainment (the 'not in Wales' slot on SDN)?

51 and 52 are still used in Northern Ireland, so can't be used for a national service on Freeview. 65 is the first currently vacant, but obviously reserved channel number.
