Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

How do you tune your freesat box to watch preview,?

Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

Your settings menu has a non-Freesat mode. Exactly how you find that depends on what box you have. You have to enter non-Freesat mode, then use the details Richard has supplied to manually tune the box to the channel you want to add.

You can't add non-Freesat channels to the Freesat programme guide. You have to maintain a separate list of non-Freesat channels you have tuned which you can view whenever you switch your box to non-Freesat mode.

In other words, unless you really badly want the channel, it's more hassle than it's worth ...

Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

This article claims that the BBC is preparing for the launch of a BBC UHD channel next year:

http://advanced-television.com/2016/...transmissions/

I'm assuming that VM will carry it due to the 'must carry' regulations and the fact that the new TiVo box is said to be UHD capable.

I'm sure it will arrive on satellite too, but doubt that there will be enough spare capacity for it to go onto Freeview. But what about the BBC's platform neuterality policy??

Is CNN SD on Freesat?

A lot are tuning into CNN HD for the geek value as it's said to be one of the best HD pictures at the moment, even better than when the BBC HD channel first started.

I'll have a look later. Kids are on school holidays now so I can't get near the tv.

Okidoki.

Sadly, Vintage TV has left Freesat, but will be joining Freeview on 1/7/16. Those who can receive BBC4 HD and Talking Pictures should be able to receive Vintage TV too.

It can still be viewed on satellite via non Freesat mode using the following parameters:

Astra 2G 11264 H 27500 2/3

Apparently, some smart TV's have it via an app too.

CNN is on Freesat in SD only, on channel 207.

Thanks.

There is some limited Freesat data present on the HD variant, so I think it will probably arrive on Freesat fairly soon.

Anyone not receiving "Freeview Lite" (from a relay transmitter) should still be able to get the channel on a Freeview HD connected TV via channel 242 if they cannot get the linear broadcasts on channel 86.

Vintage TV have today confirmed that, due to overwhelming demand, they will be rejoining Freesat

Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

This new HD channel is currently testing on satellite, it's been said that their website says that they will be joining Freesat.

http://www.arirang.com/mobile/index.asp

I can't seem to find where it says this, but it will be a FTA channel.

It's been flagged as Videoguard encrypted (when it isn't) whilst in testing mode, meaning Freesat viewers will not be able to view it until it's ready to launch.

Tuning details are: label 53150 on 11224 V

It's an English speaking Korean channel that shows documentaries and TV shows.

Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

The above channel test is now broadcasting null packets

Al Jazeera English HD is to expand from Freeview onto satellite.

As a FTA channel, I would expect this to join Freesat, but this had not yet been confirmed.
