Default Why swap BBC1/BBC2 schedules for tennis as then Freeview viewers then miss local programmes

Instead of stupid channels on Freeview like Bidup TV - why not have a single
dedicated Sports channel and stop messing about with regular programming,
I'm fed up with normal programming being messed up by the latest sporting
event that lastes for hours on end!!

There are only a limited number on channels on Freeview - why is the
majority of them crap!!

Why is BidUp TV considered worthy of a Freeview Licence? it's not as if's a
public service as you pay 75p per minute just to bid over the phone!!
I have no problems with it being on Sky TV they have the bandwidth to have
hundreds of channels but Freeview is very limited - so why not a few - good
quality channels like Discovery or something like that?

Either you are a (poor quality) troll, or you don't actually have any
idea how the financial model for Freeview works.

For some reason they weren't allowed a BBC Sport, which is a shame as it would
take all that crap away from the main channels.
