Why this change?

A new compression system was installed on Monday 2 March to reduces the size of data required to transmit programme information, optimizing and improving how programme information is made available to viewers. 

In the near future, this will also allow broadcasters to provide richer programme information, such as programme images, for their shows and movies.
