Channel Five, Channel 5 +1, 5 USA and 5* to join freesat, and be free to air — 3 Comments

  1. This evening Sky boxes were remapped and told by Sky to use the new frequency of 10965 h 22 5/6.

    This could well mean the Five channels, Five, Five* and Five USA could go free to air very soon, and maybe be free to air before they launch onto the Freesat channel list.

    Some people have been experiencing issue with the channel five channels on Sky boxes this evening. Sometime a Sky box reboot (disconnect power, wait for 30 seconds, reapply power, reboot the digibox) has corrected the issue. In other cases, manually adding the fives on their new frequency via the services, add channels, has been the solution.

  2. Channel 5, Channel 5+1, Five USA, Five USA+1, Five* and Five*+1 are now all free to air.

    On Freesat the channel numbers are:

    105: Channel 5
    128: Channel 5+1
    129: 5 USA
    130: 5 USA +1
    131: 5*
    132: 5* +1

    On Sky boxes the channel numbers are:

    105: Channel 5
    174: 5 USA
    175: 5 USA +1
    176: 5*
    177: Channel 5+1
    236: 5* +1
    Five HD: 171 (free to view – and still requires a Sky Card to view)
