It looks like the capacity on PSB3 will be utilised, so Freeview coverage will be nationwide

AIUI, Channel 5 will be leasing the former BBC3 capacity from the BBC & EPG slot to provide their service on Freeview.

Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

5HD is now live on Freesat, and occupies channel 105 on HD boxes.

If 5HD isn't already showing on channel 105 on your box, try manually re-scanning (you should see the 5HD logo in the top left of the picture if it's working).

Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

DAYSTAR have now closed their SD channel on Freesat and are now broadcasting in HD only.

DAYSTAR HD can be found on the previous SD channel number 691.

More information can be found here:

AIUI the Keep It Country TV channel is managed by Showcase. I wondered if the problems encountered leading to a delay to the Showcase channel in the link you posted in the other thread affected it's launch date?

Did it appear on Freesat on 1 June?

KIK TV actually launched a day early on Freeview (31/05/16). However, as with most new Freeview services they have launched on the only capacity currently available, which is on the COM7 HD mux which only provides 70% coverage of the UK.

Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

Thanks.

It's been claimed that 'Dave' has been briefly testing FTA on satellite using the Freesat home transponder.

I thought that 'Home' would have been the next one.

Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

CNN HD has been testing for a while now, there is some limited Freesat data there, so I'm hopeful it will join Freesat.

If not, if can be tuned in manually in non Freesat mode.

Tuning details are:

11.112 H, 22.000, 5/6, DVB-S, QPSK.

If you tune it in whilst it's still testing, it's under the label 50290 as opposed to CNN HD
