    Changes to ITV1 and Channel 4 - now available on a small satellite dish

    This morning there have been a number of changes to some channels, affecting ITV1, ITV2, ITV3, ITV4, Channel 4, E4, MOre4, and Film4.

    These channels were on the following frequencies:

    10.714 H, 10.729 V, 10.758 V, 10.832 H, 10.891 H and 10.906 V

    These channels were on Astra 2d the satellite that you require a big satellite dish for.

    These channels have today been moved onto Astra 1N.
    (Astra 1N is, like Astra 2a, 2b, 2d, currently located at 28 east. When its owrk at 28 esat is done, it will join the rest of the Astra 1 fleet at 19 east)
    So, there is no need to move your dish from 28 east.

    The frequency stays the same. They have only moved from one satellite to another, in the same satellite group.

    In my area these channels are now available on an 80cm satellite dish! In other areas a 1m satellite dish is required.

    And reception is better as I am watching Film 4 on my 80cm satellite dish, where as yesterday it was not available past 7pm on my 1.8m satellite dish

    Sky boxes and freesat boxes just go to the channels on the programme guide. No channel scan is required.

    If you have another box then you may have to scan the above frequencies, and if your dish is aligned properly then you should be able to receive a few more channels.

    Note that this will be a short term measure until a new satellite is launched later this year.

    This change of frequency may well mean loss of come channels for people in the extreme fringe area of UK TFV reception in Tenerefe, or Greece, or Cyprus where reception of Astra 1N is not as good as Astra 2D.

    It may well be that in the near future, the BBC channels, and Irish RTE channels, currently on Astra 2D could also moved over to 1N.

    This would mean 2D would be clear of channels, and free to move away to another loction, and its replacement, expected to be launched later this year, can pop into Astra 2Ds vacated space at 28 east.

    It woudl mean that for a few months at least all main UK TV channels would eb available on smaller 80cm to 1m satellite dishes in Spain

    (This is my speculation and not confirmed by Astra or BBC.)
