    Teachers TV off the air

    I noticed that it was no longer listed as being broadcast the other day whilst channel surfing and have found this on it's Wikipedia page:

    In March 2010, Ed Balls, then Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) axed the broadcast deals in place with Freeview, Freesat, Sky and Virgin Media in a bid to save the channel around £1m in carriage costs annually.[1] It closed on Freeview first on 21 July and Freesat, Sky and Virgin followed on 31 August 2010.[2] Online availability was unaffected by the change.

    The online content and site is still available though, but without the TV channel I wonder how much life is left in it?

    So it went off of freeview back in July, and it's now the middle of September and this is the first I have heard of it. The question that needs to be asked Mr Box is "how much life was in it to start with?"

    Must admit I never used it on the TV as it was broadcast at like 3am or something stupid so I only ever used it online so I think it will probably continue on for a good chunk

    There had been a lot of feedback about how more useful the website was compared to the TV Channel ... and we have already seen how much people use iPlayer.
