    As per subject line. I was looking for movies on the Freesat EPG at lunchtime and noted they start at 300 and finish at 306 and a number of these are +1 channels.

    After 306 the EPG has nothing but free space. I'm sure it wasn't like this even this time last year, in which case what has happened to 'movies'?

    Or is it a case of my imagining there used to be more?

    Anyone with perhaps a better memory than me have any more information regarding the dearth of film channels?

    How far back do you want to go ?

    The change history worksheet in Foxsat Record Check011.xls (Excel) has freesat changes details going back to 2009.

    Just in the last 12 months Graham. I'm sure there were more than the ones on the EPG now which is 300 - 306 and most of those have a +1

    That’s quite a bit of channel activity Graham, thank you.

    I’m not seeing movie channels in that list, so it does appear my memory is somewhat defective.
