October 26th - it was added to 'Pick of the Week' a while back. Sorry, I should have said.

There are rumours around that to continue receiving the Horror Channel (LCN70) a retune will be required from 11:30 on 10th Dec. Seems like it is changing mux from COM6/ArqB to another as yet unknown (SDN?).

LCN 70 Horror channel has swapped mux with LCN74 CBS Drama (COM4/6) and 792 is the old Horror with 790 the old CBS Drama.
LCN100 (PSB2/D3&4) is now Freeview Information.
[FWIW LCN67 now carries CBS Reality+1 on COM7]

LCN 30 has been renamed '5STAR'. Not sure if the Toppy will pick this up automatically as it just seems to be a name change.

But now that '5*' has gone it means there are now no channel names that contain special characters. So all the fixes to ensure LCN 30 got the right logo should not be needed anymore.

During March 30th some technical changes will occur and ITV3+1 LCN34) will revert back to broadcasting from 6pm until midnight. CITV (LCN 122) which time-shares with ITV3+1 is also affected, although there is no change of hours. So why re-tune you may say, well I suspect some frequency changes are involved (i.e. a change of mux) which may have a knock-on effect later.

True Crime (LCN60) has replaced True Movies 1 (LCN82) on the Local Mux.
Children's programme Kix (LCN 127) now has a holding slide in video ahead of 7 April launch.

I don't know if we have any Toppy enthusiasts in the Manchester area, but there have been some changes there also.

The Manchester changes are Pop+1 & Tiny Pop+1 move LCNs to 128 & 129 to accommodate Kix on 127.

Following the closure of the BBC Three online promo service at the end of March, on 5th April, local TV channels are due to move to LCN7 as part of a re-shuffle.

Summarising, that's retunes on 30/03/2016, 05/04/2016 and 07/04/2016.
Expect another on 16/05/2016, but I don't know why yet!

A516 just notes a change in use of the diy/teleshopping channels on 16th May, which may mean MUX moves and a retune again.

I haven't seen what is happening to LCN 23 yet, possibly ITV will try to grab it for one of their non-broadcasting waste of space LCN squatters ITV4+1, ITVBe+1

Subject to approval, Create & Craft will move from 36 to 23 according to http://www.terrestrialtv.uk/dtt.cgi.

Studio66 has applied for a license and it is a shopping channel. :(

So no need for a retune when a deleted channel moves to a blank spot!

Well the move has been approved so Create & Craft will move from LCN36 to 23 leaving 36 open for QVC+1 to change from 86 to 36 (not confirmed, but quite likely).

Studio 66 has appeared on LCN185 (SDN mux), but it is an 'ADULT' channel, not shopping as previously thought, midnight to 6a.m.
