full quote on bsx blog

Yes..ok..you probably all know now…BSX the TV channel has been closed down.

For a number of months now rival broadcasters have been making vociferous complaints to the authorities about BSX including that we have been broadcasting material that was too strong for the UK market, the authorities have used every means at their disposal to pressure us and our various broadcast contractors to cease business, evidence used against us included screen grabs from our live shows that had been posted up variously online, whilst its understood that this is a form of appreciation of our product in this instance it backfired badly on us.

I can say the bsx website will continue to operate and will take the entire product ‘Online’ so the brand ‘BSX’ is by no means finished.

I will continue to post regarding updates to the bsx site and anything else relevant to the bsx brand.
Look like it we still carry on but as a web show only.

Will the same happen to Television X ?
What will the hours be use for?

I am happy that a paid channel has gone from freeview as there seem to be getting more and more over the last 3 years.

It would be nice to see more FTA channels of the freeview platform but getting rid of 'Porn' channels isnt going to give us good time that people can use for other channels, as the daytime hours would give the best return for that! but I would like to see the 'porn' channels off freeview though!

LCN174 ADULT Babestn the Mheg PIN protected soft porn channel has had its Freeview licence withdrawn by Ofcom causing the sudden closedown
Some of that information is wrong.Ofcom did not shut them down as BabestationX has a Dutch TV license all Ofcom can do is pass on any complaint to NICAM.

Whilst Ofcom don't give a hoot about the Babestation Xtreme TV channel, it should be noted that Ofcom do regulate the premium rate phone number chat lines that they operate.

If you don't want to be regulated by a British regulator and follow their rules, don't come crying to your British viewers when another an overseas regulator does things it's own way.

Ofcom need to be stopped. They are destroying British TV and soon we will only be left with Cbeebies style programmes

Channel 174 has just had a message saying "service is unavailable" for the last 2 nights for both the unencrypted (11pm to 11.30pm) and later encrypted (11.30pm to 4.45am) show
The programs have not been removed from the EPG yet.

Just to confirm that the station was licenced by the Dutch Commissariaat voor de Media, and its current 5 year licence was due to expire on 18 December 2016.

Personally, I'd love to see all of the 'porn' channels removed from Freeview, along with all the shopping channels. I suppose, though, that in a free society, the mentally retarded have as much right to their own channels as everyone else. They really do seem to be aimed at people who can't walk without their knuckles scraping along the ground.

I think David Cameron is about to grant your wish sooner than you think, from what I can interpret in a speech due to be given tomorrow which affects pornographic content online but will also affect broadcasters on DTT and other platforms.

I assume it was technical violations that got them shut down. If they'd fully complied with Ofcom's content and telephony guidelines then they'd probably still be broadcasting now.

Cameron's turning out to be the ultimate paper tiger - all warm words but no action not least because his Aussie mate, Lynton Crosby, will be whispering in his ear telling him how much tax revenue these porno channels generate so there'll deffo be no action against them.

No, Cameron and his lobbyist friend Lynton Crosby are all in favour of profits no matter how they are generated so there will be no overall ban on any of the slapper channels on any platform.

The problem with all these 'adult' phone me up and talk dirty services and adult 'oh look a naked plumber' stuff is that they do make money and like the shopping channels that is what matters.

Plus with the hours of broadcast no one really wants to waste money putting on anything else on the main services hence teleshopping etc. in the wee small hours.

That is where Top Up TV came in handy use the dead hours over night to download programmes to your PVR which you can watch when it suits the next day. I always thought it was a really clever idea use the space but allow the viewer the choice of when to watch (of course with catch up via the internet you can do the same if you are on the internet and have a suitable device and broadband etc.)

OFCOM does not regulate premium rate telephone numbers.

the regulator is PhonePayPlus.
