i think that's still generalising too much. Argos TV is another example where pure revenue generation is not the only aim. Th TV exposure gives them a showcase for their products and their brand.
Did they ever reuse the footage from Argos TV for their website?

When they launched Argos TV, it struck me that it might be a good idea for them to retain the footage of live demonstrations, etc.- which, of course, they'd be doing anyway- and hire someone to quickly edit and sort them into individual demonstration videos.

Thus, rather than going to waste, they could then be posted as video demos beside the associated products- making the website more attractive- or possibly to YouTube, giving them extra publicity.

I see the EPG data for Argos TV has already been obliterated. I can't see any change on the stream sharing channels (Rocks & Co has 24hr EPG data, but I suspect it has always been like that)

The EPG data has been like that for a every long time on rocks. & co. that needs fixing. The off air screen on ch 55 has now changed. It's been talked about on here what you would like to see replace it. But what about it's replacement in the north west. Where it was on air 24/7 .
