Stu, some free to air sky/freesat tv and radio channels that have moved to Astra 2 that provide their services on a pan-european basis will also use the pan-european beam that spreads across a good part of Europe as well as the whole of the UK.

I have the Skybox + and have just ended my subscription.
I can see the Free-to- air channels - is that FSFS?- but how do I switch to view the others mentioned (Freesat)?
I have a dish and an antenna.
No requirement to record.

Thanks for your time!

I have read all the above and am still somewhat confused.
If after 12 mths I stop my SKY subscription. What channels will I be able to receive on my SKY plus HD box.
1) with the sky card in
2) with the sky card out.
Many thanks

Jeff Best: See All free TV channels | - 11 years of independent, free digital TV advice for the list of channels you get without a subscription.

The card provides regional variations (the correct versions of BBC One, Two, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5) only.

And it's on Logical Programme Number 67. Channel 67, Frequency 837 MHz, so is in the 4G band and no longer available for TV usage.

MikeP: Not meaning to quibble ... but the industry people use LCN ("Logical Channel Number").

The Frequency is currently C27 (522.0MHz), C29 (538.0MHz) and C57 (762.0MHz) - as the local multiplexes use the "interleaved frequencies" in the national plan.

I would venture to suggest that use of the word 'channel' in LCN leads to additional confusion in the non-technical user. 'Industry people' do not always choose the most helpful explanations for the general public, so they end up getting somewhat confused.
I'd suggest we need a meaningfully correct terminology and that, in my view, the term LCN or its expansion is not helpful.
