Something is happening with Five
If you have a Sky card registered in the Wales or West of England, then you may be experiencing difficulties in the reception of FIVE.
This is because the version of FIVE that serves this area has now stopped being transmitted from its “nice and easy Sky card” frequency of 12422H 27.5 2/3 and has been allocated the Freesat versions of FIVE – on 10773 H 22 5/6.
This means that this version of FIVE is only available as the same time as BBC2.
You can always programme into your “other channels” the other version of FIVE – 12422H 27.5 2/3 where there are still 3 other UK version of Five – North East and South.
Could this be the first stage of FIVE becoming totally Free to Air (as I have mentioned a few times before)in conjunction with the UKs Digital Switch over process??
Could this mean the end of the Freesat From Sky cards, as now all FIve main channels are now available on the Sky receivers?
I know this as my card is registered in the west of England!!
Will try to keep you posted as soon as I know…
