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.

[quote=David Shaw]it comes up on some systems as "service 6335"
but 'Channel' Five is now at 28.2 Astra 2D 10773 MHz Horizontal DVB-S 22MSPS 5/6FEC Transponder 45 S-ID 6335 VID 5400 AID 5401 (for those using generic FTA boxes) slightly ahead of the official launch.

Receiving the Signal loud and clear over here in Frankfurt / Main with a Squish Dish (Selfsat-H10D), with my VDR (Gen2VDR), System. It's a shame that they're not showing House anymore the season ended last September. :(
I suppose it's still on Fiver or Five US, but sadly it would appear that those Channels are still FTV and not FTA though...
THE CHOICES THE CHOICES!!! What do I go for?
Black Helicopter (TV-Licensing) Bloodly Vampieres sucked €300.00(EUR) from my account already for this Year alone! (e.g. GEZ)
Pirate *see above*
or Tux for my love of VDR??
At the moment it looks like not all programmes are available via the new FTA service.
Freesat gets fibe?
Anyone else notice that...?
