What's On guide removed from BBCi

The "What's On" section of BBCi has been removed to free-up capacity for more content. Essentially just a reduced Electronic Programme Guide, the service was useful for viewers watching Freeview through a receiver that lacked anything more than a basic "now and next" service. However, virtually all new Freeview boxes and all IDTVs now come with 7-day guides, making the section increasingly redundant.
