FIVE will automatically be added to all Freesat digital boxes (or integrated TVs) to channel 105, viewers need take no action to access the channel on November 18th.
FIVE's Charles Constable, said "I am delighted that Five will be available to Freesat viewers. Our launch will support three of Five's objectives: to be universally available throughout the UK, to let viewers watch our programmes on the platform of their choice, and to enable as many people as possible to watch Five free of charge."
Emma Scott from Freesat adds:"We've been looking forward to welcoming Five onto Freesat since we launched - and we know viewers have too. Five is a fantastic addition and we're thrilled that the large number of homes that have already chosen Freesat will now be able to enjoy Five alongside around 140 other channels available without a subscription or contract."
