Two new services have just appeared on the SDN mux: LCN 179- "Bluebird TV" and LCN 790 - "Test"

Clearly "Test" is in the temporary number allocation. Anyone any ideas what it will become?

Oddly they're both showing as data services here. ie text porn?

Oh, how exciting, Freeview is the platform to have now, just think you can watch all those channels that keep appearing and then disappearing, As bad as Dab radio.

Likely, but not necessarily. Has anybody in Wales received these two new channels?

Could be Mheg PIN protected like Television X. That might also explain the lack of "ADULT" prefix.

Synapse caption is a recent development. Data but no caption earlier.

EDIT: Anything to do with this? http://www.s-and-t.com/news/complete...esat-consumers

Will Bluebird TV be on in the day as well as night?

Vervloet Management & Beheer are the owners of Bluebird TV.

I'm confident it's nothing to lose any sleep over. More arbitrary junk inserted into the Freeview dumping ground of wasted bandwidth.

It'll be Internet bandwidth, not Freeview bandwidth, apart from a tiny amount for an MHEG.

Interestingly (or not!) that synapse website http://synapsetech.tv/ shows the YouView logo, but YouView does not yet show internet channels like Connect.

If it's a 2010 model, Sports Tonight and Racing UK work fine. The Space also worked when I accessed it pre-launch, but has been blacklisted (despite me telling them that it works fine, it has never been unblocked). The other Connect TV/Vision services also have the 2010 Panasonics blacklisted, but I have no idea whether they actually would work or not (you could try contacting Connect TV about that).

The only one I want to access is The Space!

! On no, tomee, it's another slapper channel.

I've deleted all these tat titillation channels from both the Freeview and Freesat EPGs though Freeview is infested with them compared to Freesat (l only had to delete 2 on Freesat).

Hi all i just got a email here


Hey tom yes it will be 24 hours and all 4 Bluebird channels. All 4 channels will be available on channel 179... It will be a selection menu, we are the first adult broadcaster to do this.

Enjoy!
So i guess this wont be available on none freeview HD boxes/ TV and with an internet connection.
