Channel 5 HD will launch on Freeview | Blogs
Wednesday 21 February 2018 8:54PM

Here we are in 2018 and its been broadcasting for ages probably thanks to the demise of BBC THREE or BBC iii as the BBC now prefer to call it. At least I can still receive BBC iii on my FREESAT HUMAX box on my TV, if I can be bothered as the programmes don't generally interest me, but they aren't really targeted at my age range.

Channel 4 abandons Freesat HD in TWO DAYS
Wednesday 21 February 2018 9:12PM

This is an unbelievable decision. Why on earth have I forked out all this money to buy an HD TV and FREESAT recording box only to see services that I actually watch and enjoy disappear. Surely this will affect their advertising revenue, how crazy. If this is the case I will stick to BBC, ITV HD and any other service that is free to air on FREESAT. It is bizarre that Channel 4 can afford to transmit Ch 4 and Ch 4+1 in HD on FREEVIEW but not FREESAT after all this time. MAD DECISION !! It always seemed odd to me that Freesat gave Ch 4 HD a stupid channel number of 126 ? rather than 104 as is the case on Freeview.
