The UKTV group of channels may be changing on satellite soon.

The UTV group operate 10 TV channels on UK TV satellites:

Alibi
Drama
Dave
Eden
GOLD
Good Food
Home
Really
Watch
Yesterday

And on satellite TV, via the Astra 2 group of satellites, these channels are only available via a Sky subscription.

According to recent reports, these 10 channels, in standard Definition, have suddenly appeared on frequency 12129 V SR 27500 FEC 2/3 .
So there could be a change from their current frequency of 11817 V SR 27500 FEC 2/3 to 12129 V SR 27500 FEC 2/3.
