    UK TV dual transmitting on Astra 28.2 East

    UK TV dual transmitting on Astra 28.2 East at present

    Really

    Now on 12129 V DVB-S QPSK 27500 2/3 NID 2 TID 2006 which is a UK spot transponder

    As well as 11817 V DVB-S QPSK 27500 2/3 NID 2 TID 2006 which is a Europe spot transponder

    Which could mean many ex pats may no longer be able to watch, if this move completes it could also mean that UK TV could be going FTA

    But this is pure speculation at present

    Seems difficult to imagine any other reason for doing this. What does this leave Channel 5 HD, Film 4 HD, TCM HD + Sky channels ?

    If they do become FTA/FTV channels I would imagine it would be a big blow to You Know Who

    Some services are still on a europe beam transponder 11523 H, so not a total loss for expats.

    But great news about Yesterday, Drama and Really as any Freesat move also benefits us generic non-proprietary kit users.

    They are going FTA.

    UKTV is to make three of its most popular channels available free-to-air over Freesat.

    The broadcaster is adding Yesterday, Drama and Really to the subscription-free service.

    UKTV’s CEO Darren Childs said, “We work hard to secure platform deals that give more people our channels, and ultimately grow UKTV’s footprint. Freesat viewers will be able to watch gripping history shows on Yesterday, some of Britain’s finest, critically acclaimed drama content on Drama, and unbelievable real life stories on Really. As UKTV continues to invest heavily in new shows, there’s never been a better time to have access to our channels.”

    The channels will launch on the service later this month.

    1.2 M sorry I didnt mention but strong signal. Also for Channel 4 & +1 & More 4 & More 4 + 1 can be got if you have a basic subscription from the uk this is the irish flavor with irish ads. Has to be manually added to sky box (add channels) with data from Lyngsat etc

    Thanks for info I use 1.2m for Astra 28e and 1.0 m for 907 and a 60cm for AFN on 9E which is good but AMC middle east 10E on the same dish biased to AMC middle east doesn't quite get AMC ME in cloudy weather. Just wondering if I can do a dish juggle to solve this ( all fixed ) in Southern Spain

    @dave1234, I don't know what boxes you have but try a scan on the following 11523H 22000 5/6. It should come up with Dave, Dave ja vu, Gold, Xmas Gold +1, Home +1, Eden+1, Watch +1, Xmas Food +1, Alibi, Alibi +1, Yesterday +1 and Watch.
    With regard to your other question, I am not sure, I can pull in 8.8 on the 1mtr motorised on AMC.

    nml.
