'The regulator will also reshuffle the six multiplexes on which DTT is 
broadcast. Channels will be moved off multiplex B, one of three multiplexes 
used for public service broadcasting, on to spare capacity on other 
multiplexes, freeing up space for HD and other new Freeview services.'

Just what we want, more overly compressed channels, but of course OFCOM 
doesn't care about quality.
