For the last few years the BBC has been showing live coverage of both tables from their snooker events on the red button for viewers in the UK.
Most viewers access this through the Freeview set top box on channels 301 and 302.
They won't be able to any more as channel 302 is being axed next week because it will be used for a HD channel initially only available in London and Manchester.
On the face of it, this means that only one table will be available to view from December's UK Championship, and even that is not guaranteed as there will be other things having to go on channel 301 as well.
The BBC today issued a rather vague statement, which said: "we are doing everything we can in conjunction with our colleagues in Sport to schedule events to ensure that we try and accommodate all the major sporting events on Freeview."
That is some way short of a promise, or even a plan.
The picture should become clearer when the UK Championship begins.
However, the fear is that the next time the presenter tells you to press the red button when a match is poised at a vital stage because the BBC need to get off for some quiz show, you may be disappointed.
Thankfully, they will still show both tables on their website and Sky customers will not be affected by the changes.
