Adult channel leaves Freeview: more teleshopping?

IN BRIEF Adult channel Playboy TV Chat has closed on Freeview. The service ended following the end of a carriage agreement that expired at the end of November. The channel had been occupying a six hour slot between midnight and 6am on the SDN digital multiplex and was available on channel 178.

The channel's off air caption was removed over the weekend, and it is expected to disappear off the EPG shortly.

The service shared capacity with The Jewellery Channel, which broadcast from 06:00 to 00:00 on channel 49 using the remainder of the 24 hour slot on the SDN multiplex. It is expected that the shopping channel will extend its hours to run around the clock - just in time for some late night Christmas teleshopping.

update: 5 December 2012 06:57
As expected, The Jewellery Channel has now extended its hours as a result of the changes.
