Motors TV Closure on Channel 71

I attach the link to A516 Digital – where there is a full, detailed article.. please take a look


Sadly, Motors TV is closing on Freeview Channel 71 – the only way to watch it now will be on Freeview Channel 240, but you will need an internet enabled TV or hard drive to carry on watching.  I have contacted Motors TV for a reason behind the closure, no further details from them I’m afraid.

BBC Olympics Rights

Again, another great A516 digital article here – no point me copying it word for word, take a look here.


In a nutshell, the Rio Olympics will be the last Olympics games where there will be multiple streams available for free – from 2018’s Winter games onwards, and the 2020 and 2024 Olympics, there will be two streams available for free, with the rest on pay TV.  Compared to the 20+ streams we had for the London games four years ago, we’re going to have to get used to a drastic reduction in the sports we see for free – minority sports we may have seen in the past, may not be picked for airtime now by the BBC.
