So currently it looks like a 24-hr slot with just 2 hours of films (and in the wee small hours at that)?

I won't be troubling the retune menus just yet ......

The overnight movies appear to be designed for Freeview+ PVR owners to record during those timeslots with the remainder of the day for the viable teleshopping market.

It also allows Bid Shopping to air Bid Plus and Speed Auction on Freeview for the first time, which gives airtime to all of their brands on the platform.

Still 2 hours a day, and surely not enough for more than 1 decent-length film per day either.

They're putting the films on in the early hours of the morning and they've got The Hoax (2006 - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0462338/) in a few days' time.

I don't know why they've changed the name since it's still mostly shopping tat.

The host just now said "on channel 32 right through Christmas Time" so it seems like a temporary thing.

Have I understood this correctly? The nametag has changed to MovieMax, its a 24hr channel that shows movies for 2hours(ish) a day, and shopping for the remainder. Ooooooooohkay then!

Bonkers innit? (unless, of course, they intend to increase the proportion of films at some stage)

Part of the DMOL LCN rules are that a channel must "morph" into another channel in order to keep the same LCN. If Big Deal changed into Movie Mix and the content changed from teleshopping to movies overnight, they'd be forced to get a new LCN. So instead they've kept the teleshopping component, and changed two hours overnight to films. Nobody can argue it isn't the same channel (the fact that the other 22 hours of actual teleshopping haven't been broadcast for a few months until today seems to have gone unnoticed). They have then changed the channel name after a few weeks of that. They will probably increase the film quota until it becomes a 24hr film channel. Or, alternatively, they will shrink it back down to only the two hours in the middle of the night again when Dave ja vu launches.

They've gone through enough changes in the past without that happening, considering that it was originally a premium rate phone-in quiz channel.

So it does exactly the opposite of what it says on the tin.

I just found it by accident to see a confusing mixture of channel name and programme name witha caption saying they're having tech problems and will be back shortly accompanied by something not too far from lift music.

Then a short time later a woman's voice giving a 'babes channel' type phone-me boys message which was more confusing in mid-afternoon.

What a load of crap. All selling and slappers. Ch32 won't be getting my custom unless they put on some programmes.

Edit: Oooh - there's a 1958 film on More4 - that's for me!
I'm off.

So 'bid plus' is broken already? They've put on speed auction instead.

Well, at least we have Speed Auction on Freeview.
Been waiting for ever.
Noticed earlier that Spped Auction was on instead of Bid Plus despite EPG showing Bid Plus. Also, how can Bid Plus be broken? What does it mean?

It's actually called MovieMix, but, so far, the mix is very thin.

Sounds more like a Heinz 57 Varieties channel, to be honest

This was actually an obscure 70s film of the same name.

http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0201661/

The name change has clearly caused some interest but outside of the shopping hours it just seems to be typical Cellcast/Squre1 filler material which has also appeared on Smile TV and Sumo TV.
