Non Freesat Mode
The number of channels currently available on the Freesat EPG (electronic programme guide) does not included ALL of the free UK TV channels that are available.
However that does not mean that they are not available on a Freesat receiver.
But it is possible to view this and all the other free to air (FTA) channels by accessing the manual tune or Non Freesat Mode feature on your Freesat set top box.
