Virgin 1 will move to multiplex A and broadcast for 24 hours a day from May 20, it has been revealed. It's possible that it will replace Bid TV, which was previously operated by Virgin Media Television but recently sold off. The 12-hour slot it previously occupied on Multiplex D will be used to carry Virgin 1+1.

The next stage of the UK's digital switchover programme began today, when analogue broadcasts of BBC Two were switched off from the Beacon Hill transmitter and its relays. According to some reports, this has left around 1,500 people without the channel, but that's because they haven't bought any digital equipment (and not because of any problems with the switchover plan). The remaining channels currently being broadcast in analogue will be switched off on April 22.

• NHS Direct has been re-named NHS Choices and has had a mini-makeover. The service can be accessed from Teletext and on Freeview channel 100.
• As mentioned previously, CNN changed its broadcasting hours last week. Programming is broadcast between 19:00 and 00:00 midnight, but the stream on Freeview channel 84 continues until 02:00 showing a simulcast of SuperCasino. As a result, Top Up TV Anytime 2 now starts at 02:00 (one hour later than previously).
