Are all your channels on a single multiplex (frequency)?

In Australia each of the five stations has their own multiplex
(each carrying SDTV, SDTV-guide, HDTV). They only transmit the next two
programs as guide data (if that), but if they did transmit a whole week
we could bet that it would only be their own channel, so multiplex
hopping would be necessary.

I think we are a few years behind the UK though.
