izzy: Perhaps you were talking about the Other Channels feature? There's an example for adding ITV1 HD at ITV HD on Sky+HD Boxes | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice .

C McGrath: ITV's channels do not appear in Sky's Republic of Ireland EPG. To add, follow the steps at ITV HD on Sky+HD Boxes | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice but use 10758 V for the frequency and polarization. ITV3 is on 10906 V. Other frequency and service information can be found at Eurobird 1 & Astra 2A/2B/2D at 28.2°E - LyngSat .

If you're using an aerial pointed into Northern Ireland with a Saorview box, you may need to wait until the end of next year for signals to be strong enough. If you can get UTV reasonably clearly on analogue now, digital should work when Northern Ireland switches over.

I have a free to air box as well as the usual sky box here in Ireland. I have Channel 5 tuned in under the "Other Channels" on the sky box. However, I am unable to do it on the free to air box. Can it be done??

I'm also in NI and can't get TV3 which I'm really annoyed at, I programmed it in on the 'add channel' bit and it gives me what is currently on the channel but no picture. Do you think Sky will ever broadcast it in NI? I had it through Sky in the Republic and just assumed in NI I could get at least the main Republic channels. RTE1 & 2 are ok, TG4 is a pain in the neck and the only decent Republic channel is TV3.
I noticed someone mentioned Freeview - can I get Republic channels through this and if so is TV3 definitely included?

Jennifer: TV3 is encrypted and is only provided to Sky customers in the RoI, it can't be got by using "add channels".

You have not provided a postcode so I can't really say if you can get the digital terrestrial service in the RoI.

Used to be able to get BBC News on Other Channels on my Sky Digibox in Rep. of Ireland but now told when tuning-in that there is a technical fault and try again later. Have the settings for this channel been changed in recent weeks? If so, are new settings available?
