I´ll tell you why I think not: newscasts.

Over the air TV is free and is everywhere, and you can quickly tune to
watch the latest events, whether it´s sports, hurricanes, wars, etc

Freeview is thus no match for on-demand, it targets a different target
audience, for different content.

Of course those that want to follow series like "House M.D." might be
better served by "on-demand" rather than watching for the show to run
at a given time and date of the week.

Just my $0.02
