Doubt it, the cost per viewer to them would be too expensive on cable. Much cheaper to do it via satellite.

Re: A thread for FreeSat changes

New update for 4K Freesat boxes the other day.

Source: https://www.freesat.co.uk/help/article/4409619787794

--------

Software Update 10th November 2021

5.4.1.p13_ui_1.4.1

New Features:

Improved Interface during LNB verification. Customers will now see that the box is setting things up for them, rather than a no signal screen when coming out of standby
We have enhanced how search results are displayed for both On TV and On Demand content
Fixes:

Performance:

We have improved how the box handles low memory scenarios and will automatically close background applications if necessary to improve the overall experience
Enhanced the general responsiveness of the application, users should see an improvement in general performance
FTI & Privacy notice:

We have fixed several bugs with our first-time installation process
Improved our privacy notice pop-up flow and fixed several issues that could result in related issues


Standby & power management:

There have been several bugs fixed coming out of standby to improve box behaviour, including:

Remembering the last tuned channel after a box reboot/ nightly reboot
Improvements to avoid the application crashing while the box is in standby mode
Sometimes customers would see washed-out picture after waking from standby
No AV on Live TV channel when switching from passive standby to active mode


Settings & Channel Scan:

We have a few fixes for settings & channel scan:

Occasional box crash during postcode check
Regional Channels: BBC One London list was not shown correctly
Recordings & Reminders:

There have been numerous fixes for issues with recordings & reminders, including but not limited to:

Resuming playback of recording causes a device reboot
Users unable to access recordings action menu after deleting a recording
Users occasionally get stuck on Recordings preview Home screen
Continue watching option not available for partially viewed programme
Exit Recording Playback - Live TV has no AV until zapped to a different channel
Fixed an issue causing duplicate recordings when setting via Freesat App
Reminder Icon not removed after show started
Unable to auto-tune to a channel from reminder pop-up when watching iPlayer

TV Guide:

We have resolved a few issues with the TV Guide:

Restart Metadata Icon was not always showing
‘Back’ from "Showing Again” took you to the Recordings home page pane, not the Guide home page.
1 Line guide not displaying when returning to Live TV
Fixed an issue with double key entry on BBC channels
Both user-hidden and favorited channels appeared among the Favorite channels filter in TV Guide
Users would sometimes get stuck in the guide when a series recording was cancelled

Showcase:

We have fixed a few key issues affecting our lovely showcase picks:

Showcase was not displaying correctly on box boot up
Showcase was occasionally taking too long to populate
We have improved default image logic for when showcase images are not available

Timeshift:

We found and fixed some issues when you pause live TV on our recordable boxes:

STOP RCU key would not return you to live TV
Users were occasionally unable to record an event from within timeshift
A noticeable black screen could be seen when exiting from timeshift to Live TV
Fixed an issue where FF/RW were working intermittently
On Demand:

There were a few bugs with our On Demand apps and menus that we have resolved:

Exit whilst loading OD player would land user on ‘No Signal’ screen
Fixed an issue where video was intermittent during playback on the My5 app
There were a few instances where Netflix was not closing when requested
OD Apps menu would occasionally reset due to a timeout

In addition to the above, we have bug fixes to improve stability and responsiveness of our devices.

Test LCNs are:

126 - Channel 4 HD
501 - Box Hits
502 - Box Christmas (usually The Box)
503 - KISS
504 - Magic
505 - Kerrang!

Obviously you won’t be able to tune into these just yet, but this is long-overdue and great news for the platform.

Spotlight has moved from 516 to 500.
