Instead of "clever" responses... "ignore User Again"  Have you never heard of Google.... etc... ... in response to a question from someone on this forum , who would like to know "what is freeview light"... you could use the same, or less, effort to answer the query...
I clicked on the original linky. and can see no mention of Freeview Light... so I, too, would like a proper answer to the question.... What is Freeview Light". ?

Re: Film 4 is now on Freeview "Light" Channel 15

Some information is available here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_digital_terrestrial_television_channels_%28UK%29 but the gist of it is a cut down version of Freeview with less channels available.
Until now I had never heard of it.

I think it is from the small repeater transmitters which only have the Public Service Channels

Don't forget to try 'Light' and 'Lite' as I did with varying results.

From the linked web page...
Film4 - Great news for Freeview Light
Homes with Freeview Light will be very pleased indeed to hear that they now have Film4 to watch, as the channel has moved to multiplex PSB2.

Re: Film 4 is now on Freeview "Light" Channel 15

As Freeview has been transmitting for nearly 11 years now, I wrongly assumed people understood associated terms.
So apologies for the immediate lack of clarification.
Perhaps the terminology in the links was a bit too technical for the average viewer.
Local Freeview Light Transmitters, which explain in more detail

Film4 has been a long time coming to Freeview Light Transmitters
