Freesat TV and Sky TV Satellite Frequency Transponder Settings for Spain

The UK TV channels available on Freesat TV and on Sky TV UK are transmitted from four satellites. These four satellite use around 90 different transponders to transmit from. Each of these transponders relates to one frequency. Each frequency can carry a number of channels.

There is no one single "best transponder frequency setting" for Sky in Spain, as the best frequency to use is determined by the channel you wish to view. The Freesat TV or Sky TV Digibox will use the relevant frequency for the desired channels. (This overrides the Default transponder frequency you may have manually set into the Sky TV digibox!)

This frequency list shows you those frequencies (and transponders) that carry UK TV and an indication as to the channels they carry.

Not all channels on this list are available on Freesat. Some channels, like Dave are not available on Freesat, and are only available via satellite with a Sky Subscription.

List correct as at April 2012. Channels may have been moved to different transponders / frequencies since this last update

Channels frequently change frequencies and transponders. A Sky TV digibox and a Freesat TV receiver will (or should) automatically update themselves with the new frequencies – although sometimes a power off and reboot for the receiver may be needed. For non Sky TV or Freesat TV receivers, like Darkboxes, then the new frequencies will have to be manually scanned and searched for, via that receivers installation menu.

The Sky TV Electronic Programme Guide or EPG is transmitted on one frequency / transponder setting – 11778 V 27.5 2/3. This is the main default transponder frequency, as this is where the full 7 day EPG is located. All other frequencies carry approximately 21 hours of data, but 11778 carries the full 7 day data.

The Freesat TV Electronic Programme Guide or EPG is also transmitted from one frequency / transponder setting – 11428 H 27.5 2/3.

What are the frequencies for Sky channels in Spain?

The Sky channels in Spain will use the same frequencies as if you are watching Sky channels in the UK.
