Freesat gets Five

Completing the set of terrestrial broadcasters

Channel Five will arrive on free-to-air satellite broadcasting network Freesat in a couple of weeks.

The launch date is Tuesday, 18 November, and when the signal appears, your Freesat set-top box - or telly if you have a Freesat-branded TV - will auto-install it among the list of channels, Freesat promised.

The broadcaster didn't confirm as much, but we assume the full package of Five channels - Five itself, Fiver and Five US - will be sent out by Freesat on the given day.
