Date Created: 03-07-2020

In line with Ofcom rules and broadcaster carriage contracts ending in June, Arqiva cleared the COM8 temporary multiplex on 22 June 2020 to make way for future mobile telecoms services.  Some (primarly+1)TV services have closed permanently, some have migrated to COM7 - the other temporary HD mux that will continue for the foreseeable future until Ofcom serves notice on Arqiva to vacate.

Please note that some services will run temporary slates on COM7 and COM8 until 30 June 2020 before fully disappearing.
