Anyone else think this is an outrage? It was full of great programs, The Professionals, The Sweeny, loads of WRC and behind the scenes programs! Now its gonna be replace with some ITV games channel, great! 
Men and Motors is a UK-based ITV-owned television channel available on the following platforms within the United Kingdom:
Freeview channel 35
We regret to tell our Freeview viewers that we will no longer be
available on Freeview from 06:00 on the 12th April . Men and Motors
will be replaced by ITV Play, which will launch shortly after. Men and
Motors will continue to broadcast on Sky, NTL & Telewest.
Sent off an e-mail to Men and motors and this is the reply i got-
Thank you for your email.
From the 19th April, ITV Play will take the slot currently being used by
Men and Motors on Freeview. Men and Motors will continue to broadcast a
strong schedule on Sky, Telewest and NTL. ITV has limited capacity on
the Freeview platform and we have to take decisions based upon the
capacity available. In this instance we believe ITV Play represents the
best commercial use of this capacity on DTT. We apologise for any
inconvenience this has caused to our viewers.

I like the bit about "we believe ITV Play represents the best commerical use of this capacity on DTT" they just want more money from people phoning in to answer the question
I can't believe this. I used to watch Men and Motors frequently and the first I knew about it being dropped from Freeview was
when I tried to watch it this evening and found it had been replaced with some dodgy gameshow! 
I think this is a total travesty and whoever made such a decision should be sacked.
I've emailed Men&Motors aswell complaining about this, I hope a lot of other people do too: http://www.menandmotors.co.uk/page/Feedback/
not sure if it will make any difference.....
There are some spare slots on Freeview, including the one not used by ITV for the failed ITV News channel, but they have to pay to broadcast. ITV is cash strapped, as advertising revenue is in short supply. The new games channel will have no advertising, generating easy money from the phone calls to play whatever mindless games they've dreamt up. They will see it as a way out of their present financial difficulties. Something I didn't know is that "FREEVIEW is marketed by DTV Services Ltd which is a company run by its five shareholders the BBC, BSkyB, National Grid Wireless, ITV and Channel 4."
