It currently remains as a link to the iPlayer for TiVO customers. I assume it will be removed when a decision is made about what will occupy channel 106 in future. Even if the EPG number is removed or reused, it will not affect the viewing of recordings from channels 106 or 163 (163 has already been removed from the EPG). Recordings remain available until October as per post 2 above.
