Default BTs demo channel now gone?

Have bt vision decided to stop paying for their ever so boring channel on
freeview plugging their sport now?


Also does anyone understand the reason for channel names like Spike and
Quest Red?
They seem to have nothing whatever to do with the content.

But it's moved from SD channel 59 to HD channel 115, so presumably only
available in areas with COM7/COM8 mux?

Is that what it was?

I assumed the Demo channel would be a bit like Yesterday, but with more Arthur Scargill.
