DIANE : Probably because they can't afford the Freesat EPG fee.

Ask them: Ideal Shopping Direct - A leading multi-channel home shopping retailer

You can still watch using non-Freesat mode:

Wonder whether anyone can help. I've got an old Sky HD box. I've given it to my partner and she would like to use it with a Freesat Card from Sky.
Only problem is she would like to know what will be her default BBC and ITV region.
Have spoken to Sky and been passed from pillar to post. All we are told is it will be the appropriate region for the postcode.
Is there anywhere I can look up default regions for a postcode, Sky tell me this is controlled by BBC and ITV.
Post code in question is CM1 4YJ.

Sewing Quarter has been added to one of the public multiplexes.
I am always happy when we get a new channel, but...
What a waste of bandwidth, as the channel says is is on air from 8am to 4pm but some days closes down at mid-day.
So if you work or go to school, you won't see any programs.
(Sky satellite version is on air all day)
Also the quality of the programs are not very good.
Why don't they share this channel like CBeebies and BBC4.
They could also share Film4 with cITV before 11am.
Here is my list of channels that I think would be better, on the limited number of Freeview Light channels:
4seven, 5 Star, 5 USA,
Dave, Pick (Sky 3), CBS Action. CBS Drama, CBS Reality, Horror Channel,...

What channel do you think should replace this waste of space?

Frank : Retuning will never fix interference or a weak signal, as all you are doing is deleting all of your channels and searching for them again. Have you checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV? Please provide a full postcode so that we can see which transmitter you're using, where you are in relation to it and your predicted coverage etc.
