    CHANNEL FIVE MOVING SATELLITES

    IVE IS MOVING: I heard about this happening a few weeks ago, but it is confirmed that the satellite company that operates the UK TV satellites will soon be moving the satellite (ASTRA 2C) that FIVE (and the various other FIVES channels) to another location.
    The channels on this satellite which include Five, Fiver and Five USA will be moved to another satellite. I do not know what satellite it is being moved to, or how this will affect reception, but this will happen very soon.

    Lets hope it does not go to Astra 2D as this could be an indication that all of FIVE channels will be going free and available without a Sky card, but will need a BIG DISH!

    You will not need to move your dish - all sky and freesat boxes will self update with the new frequencies.

    If you have a generic receivers (like a darkbox then you will need to rescan the frequency...when we know what it is

    Re: CHANNEL FIVE MOVING SATELLITES

    Channels FIVE and its sister channels has changed frequencies today.

    This is becasuse the satelolite operator needs to move the satellite FIVE was on to sort out some issues at another location.

    So if you have a darkbox or other generic receiver you will need to rescan....see you instruction manual that should have been left for you by your installer.

    You can do it yourself by and save your self a call out fee by rescanning the following frequency settings.

    Frequency 12422
    Polarisation H
    FEC 2/3
    SR 27.5

    Th new frequency is on Astra 2As SOUTH beam so reception should not be affected.

    If you have a Sky box then not to worry as your Sky box will have SELF UPDATED.
    Freesat is not affected - your Freesat five is not affected at all.
