This morning there were a few more changes for channels that were on Astra 2D, and that are now available on Astra 1N
Channels and frequencies affected:
Disney Cinemagic UK
Disney Cinemagic UK +1
Disney Junior UK
Disney Channel UK +1
Disney Junior UK +1
Disney XD UK
Nickelodeon UK +1
Nick Jr UK
Sky Sports Active
ITV 1 HD Granada
STV West HD
ITV 1 HD Central West
These channels were on Astra 2d the satellite that you require a big satellite dish for in most of Spain.
These channels have today been moved onto Astra 1N.
(Astra 1N is, like Astra 2a, 2b, 2d, currently located at 28 east. When its work at 28 east 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, where are prior they may not have been available 24/7 even on a 2.4m satellite dish in Spain. In some areas a 1m dish may be required
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.
