TCM to be removed from original Top Up TV channel lineup

TCM will be removed from the linear Top Up TV channel lineup on the 10th April. TCM films will still be downloaded to Top Up TV Anytime DTR boxes, but the channel will cease to exist on the linear channel lineup. This doesn’t leave much left on the original channel lineup – just UKTV Gold, UKTV Style and British Eurosport will remain on the original channel lineup. It appears that Top Up TV may be phasing out the old lineup in favour of more overnight downloads to DTR boxes for Top Up TV Anytime customers. An MHEG on TCM (during downtime hours) tells customers of the upcoming closure of the channel on the linear Top Up TV channel lineup.
