Was scanning the ports tonight found a new one I’ve not spotted before.
It’s going out in the clear and appears to be related to ITV.
Wishful thinking but I thought this might be connected to ITV’s FAST channels. They’d be a strong addition to the linear channels.
Perhaps. But it's only on the BT side - EE's multicast channels are still what was carried before the EE TV turn off - no Freeview channels or name changes though.
Given that they appear to be somewhat separate platforms (or at least offer different multicast services), I wonder which side will become the default. BT's is certainly more developed.
Update on the test stream - it's now carrying ITV1 with subtitles, unencrypted.
Anyone who wants to compare quality, now is the time to do it! Pop this in VLC.... rtp://188.8.131.52:5802
