As a FTA channel, I would expect this to join Freesat, but this had not yet been confirmed.
Depends if they want to pay both Sky & Freesat for an EPG slot. If they only join Sky then it will be another manual tune job the same as CNN HD is now.

S/R 22.0 00

FEC 5/6

It's labelled 50350.

Arirang is now showing EPG data. It was originally doing this before video testing, then null packets and now testing the EPG, so it looks to be starting soon.

Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

A few (most short term) freebies for Freesat users

Viceland HD* can be found FTA on 11.739 V 29.500 FEC 8/9

*May be labelled as '3840'.

Viceland* can be found on 11836 H 27.500 FEC 5/6.

*May be labelled as '5115'.

These channels are said to sometimes encrypt in the evening and they will be fully encrypted in about a week as they are supposed to be pay channels.

Blaze* is a free channel and can be found on 11.082 H 22.000 FEC 5/6

*May be labelled as 50350.

E! +1 can be found on 11.306 H 27.500 FEC 5/6. This is a pay channel, so could encrypt at any time.

Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

10.773 H SR 22000 FEC 5/6 DVB-S QPSK

6381 - BBC Radio Cymru Mwy

This service hoped to launch on Freesat in Wales only on 19 September, it is now expected to be late September.

Now confirmed that Blaze won't be coming to Freesat straight away, but Freesat viewers can tune it in using the above parameters.

This channel carries former pay TV programming from History, H2 and CI.

Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

Unfortunately, Euronews appears to have been taken off Freesat.

However, the station can be watched in non-Freesat mode using the following parameters:

11464 H 22000 5/6

Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

11.224 V SR 23000 FEC 2/3 DVB-S2 8PSK

"53150" has been relabelled "Arirang TV"

Arirang TV has been added to Freesat. The South Korean news and culture channel is available on channel 214 (HD only).

It looks to have some interesting programmes.

Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

No problem

Theres a possibility that Russia Today (RT) may be leaving Freesat as per the development in this thread:
