ITV3 HD and ITV4 HD services changing frequencies

Both pay TV services, currently only available on satellite through Sky UK, are moving transponders as ITV rejigs its satellite capacity.

ITV are making use of amended parameters that allow it to carry more channels per transponder and eventually offer at least one version of every ITV region in HD on satellite.

The channels continue on UK spotbeam capacity, making reception for expats and holidaymakers around the Mediterranean difficult.

ITV3 HD and ITV4 HD frequencies:

ITV1HD Granada and ITV1HD London have changed their frequencies.

They are no longer available on of 10832 H and 10994 H.

Their new frequencies are :

11068 V 23000 2/3
and
11097 V 23000 2/3

The latter frequency also carries ITV1HD Meridian South East and ITV1 HD Central West.

Sky and Freesat boxes should (hopefully) automatically update tot he new frequencies.

Users of other satellite receivers will need to perform a scan of the new frequencies to continue to watch these ITV1HD regions.

Our previous post mentioned some more Sky channels moving from satellite to satellite. https://www.satandpcguy.com/blog/2014/02/uk-tv-satellite-changes-channels-swap-satellites/

Channels have been moved from the temporary Astra 1N satellite, and moved to the “old” Astra 2A satellite.

The channels and frequencies affected, that we can make out are:

12071 H – Sky Sports Active 12090 V – National Geographic HD UK, Comedy Central HD UK, Eden HD, Nickelodeon HD, MTV HD UK

12110 H – Sky Sports F1, Sky One +1, Sky Sports 2 Ireland, Sky Sports 1, Sky Sports 3, PBS U.K., Fox U.K., Cartoonito, Sky Living, Comedy Central UK

12168 V – Sky Modern Greats HD, Sky Valentine HD, Sky Scifi/Horror HD, Sky Comedy HD, Sky Disney HD

12148 H – Sky Arts 2, Sky Atlantic (ireland), Sky Sports News, Eurosport 2, Sky Sports 4, Fox +1 U.K., Comedy Central Extra

12207 V – Sky Sports 2, Sky News, Sky News Ireland, Sky One Ireland, Pick TV, Sky Two, Pick TV +1

12227 H – Good Food HD, Cartoon Network, Disney Junior HD, Disney Channel HD UK, TCM HD UK

12246 V – Sky Action HD, NatGeo Wild HD, History, Crime HD, TLC HD

12266 H – Sky Box Office 12304 H – Challenge, Challenge +1

12324 V – Film4 HD, SyFy HD UK, More 4 HD

 

For some channels – like those on frequency 12207 and 12110 you should not notice any changes in reception in my service area (Costa Blanca and Valencia areas). For some extreme fringe reception areas, like the Canaries, you may have noticed you can now receive these channels again. This is because the beam that they are now on, the Astra 2A south beam, has much better reception in your area than the beam they were on, the 1N European beam.

The rest of the channels and frequencies in last nights move may be bad news for some people, especially those with smaller satellite dishes. These channels have moved from the 1N European beam, to the “weaker” Astra 2A north beam. In my service area (Costa Blanca and Valencia areas) the Astra 2A north bam is much harder to receive than the south beam, and requires at least a 1.8m dish.

And that is why some channels have better reception today, and others have worse reception.

Astra 2F UK Satellite changes:

A few (not all!) channels and frequencies moved from their old satellite to the new Astra 2F satellite last night.

The channels and frequencies affected are :

10.964 H SR 22.000 FEC 5/6 (CH5/5USA/5*/Channel 5+1),

10.994 H SR 22.000 FEC 5/6 (ITV 1 Granada HD/ITV 1 Central South West SD/ITV 1 Anglia West SD/ITV 1 Meridian North SD/ITV 1 Yorkshire East SD/ITV 1+1 Yorkshire SD),

11.052 H SR 22.000 FEC 5/6 (ITV 1 Central South SD/ITV 1 Central East SD/ITV 1+1 Wales SD/ITV 1+1 Westcountry SD/ITV 1+1 Tyne Tees SD)

11.126 V SR 22.000 FEC 5/6 (Channel 4 HD/4Seven SD)

People in some areas may notice loss of these channels on smaller 80cm or 1m dishes (especially if they are not aligned properly!)

But this does not mean the other channels (BBC ITV C4s) will not be moving – it is simply a question of when!
