  1. Why no BBC + 1 Channel

    Cannot understand why BBC don’t have plus 1 channels. I find them very handy on many other channels.

    Found this on Radio Times from 2015

    Plans to launch BBC1+1 have been stopped in their tracks by the BBC Trust.

    The governing body issued a provisional rejection of the proposal by BBC management to launch the service to replace the space on the Electronic Programme Guide [EPG] left by BBC3. Today the Trust also gave provisional approval to BBC3’s closure as a broadcast channel.
    The BBC’s management had been hoping to launch the BBC1+1 catch up service which was seen as a crucial means of shoring up the viewing numbers and share of BBC1. Director general Tony Hall announced the plans in October 2013, describing the service as designed to “give people more of what they’ve already paid for”.
    However the Trust said that the proposals would have an “adverse” effect on the rest of the industry “capturing viewing share for the BBC at the expense of commercial channels and reducing the profitability, in particular, of ITV and Channel 5?.

  2. YOUR COMMENTS:


  3. On many TV's you can join halfway through a programme and press the green button to go back to the start. +1 is less useful than catch-up

  4. What's the harm in having both? I'd love the +1 option for BBC1 as well.
