    What is the Sky news Frequency on Freesat?

    Freesat only includes a certain number of UK TV hcnanel in the Freesat channel list.

    Some channels are missing.

    So if you want to watch Sky News on a Freesat receiver, how do you do this, as Sky News is not on the Freesat Channel list.

    On the Humax Freesat receiver, the most popular and probably the best Freesat receiver for use in Spain, here is how to get Sky News on your Freesat receiver.

    Menu
    Setup
    Manual Tune
    Choose transponder with 12207 v
    Search
    Save

    You now have Sky news in your "non freesat" mode EPG

    To change back to the Freesat EPG
    Menu
    Settings
    change STB Mode to Freesat

    IF you are in Freesat mode, and want to watch Sky news ,then
    Menu
    Settings
    change STB Mode to Non Freesat.
    Choose Sky news from the list of "non freesat" channels.

    This is beacause Freesat receivers have two modes: an offical Freesat mode, and a "non freesat" mode. The "non freesat mode" basically turnes the Freesat receiver in to a free to air receiver, allowing you access to all the free to air UK TV channels on the satellites, not just those free to air channels that are on the Freesat EPG.
