It is odd when you put it like that.


Only a guess: would the move leave room for another tv channel on the mux
they are vacating?


Yes but that begs the question: why would they want to make space for a new
TV channel on one mux (COM5) rather than the other (COM6), given that both
have the same coverage. If there happens to be space on COM6, why not put
the TV channel there, rather than moving channels from COM5 to COM6 and
putting the new channel on COM5? All very weird... I'm sure it makes sense
to someone.

but it's OFCOM - why should anything make sense?

I don't know the details of this particular case.

A basic point is that a radio channel uses much less bandwidth than a TV
channel.
It is possible that a mux has spare bandwith but not enough for a TV
channel. However, it might be that moving some radio channels from that
mux would release bandwidth which along with the existing spare
bandwidth would be enough for an additional TV channel.
