Yesterday, Drama and Really joining Freesat this month
UKTV, which is a commercial joint venture between BBC Worldwide and Scripps Networks Interactive, Inc and who provide 11 branded channels have announced today that three of their channels will be on Freesat "later this month".
UKTV’s CEO Darren Childs said, "We work hard to secure platform deals that give more people our channels, and ultimately grow UKTV’s footprint. Freesat viewers will be able to watch gripping history shows on Yesterday, some of Britain’s finest, critically-acclaimed drama content on Drama, and unbelievable real life stories on Really. As UKTV continues to invest heavily in new shows, there’s never been a better time to have access to our channels."
I can't help wondering why Dave hasn't made it though…
Ian: Re; Yesterday. Yes, this seems to be the way of overcoming the necessity of requiring a viewing card for this channel.
Tested out by disconnecting the Sky box from the mains followed by removing the viewing card from same before powering it up again, checking that 537 was still coming up as "channel unavailable" after the box went through its usual "searching for listings" procedure.
This then followed by entering the "add channels" menu, punching in : 12.129V - 27.5 - 2/3 then selecting "find channels", on completion of storing "Yesterday" from the others listed.

My Humax Freesat box shows the 3 new channels in the channel list but on each of them it states 'no or bad signal '. I have scanned for new channels several times which usually cures a problem like this but absolutely no luck this time. I have never had a problem like this with new channels before now.
