Gems TV to launch on Freeview?

Second-rate, shoe-string-budget satellite shopping channel Gems TV appears to have secured some capacity to broadcast on Freeview, according to the Ofcom website and correspondence with the station. It is unclear if the station will broadcast in the early evening slot (previously occupied by Thomas Cook TV); during the day in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland (ABC1’s old haunt); or just during the downtime of an existing Freeview channel.
