Thomas Cook TV closes on Freeview

Not long after it launched on Freeview, it has gone – Thomas Cook TV has stopped broadcasting on the platform. The DTT licence is thought to have expired at the end of August 2007 – hence why it’s off-air. Nuts TV will be launching in September and was originally thought to be sharing bandwidth with Thomas Cook TV, but perhaps they have utilised all of the space for Nuts TV. The placeholder MHEG for Thomas Cook TV still appears in “off-air” hours – but a blank screen shows instead of the video stream when it is meant to be on-air. Watch this space.
