ITV1 on Freesat tonight (4.6.13)

Any ideas what's happened?
It seems fine on Freeview/Freeview HD but nothing on Freesat/Freesat HD. My daughter happened to mention, in passing, that they haven't got ITV1 on Sky.

From Sky Service Status....
Live Major issue: ITV Channels

We are currently aware that some ITV channels are currently broadcasting a blue screen along with no audio. ITV are aware of this issue and are working hard to fix this as soon as possible.

Just noticed a similar message on Freesat.co.uk.

Don't do ITV, but just checked and looks like a problem with TxP 49 on 10832 H 22000 2/3.
As all those channels are down

Which is why I record "Important to me" programmes on both SKY+HD and Freeview HD at the same time !
(Mostly, there is a "clash" on SKY)
And of course, there is On Demand for missing programmes, if you have access to On Demand.
And the various web Channel players.
BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5.
(inc all their various related channels)

The technical fault occurred around 6.20pm and appears to have affected homes in every TV region apart from London and ITV Granada

Emmerdale (ITV) is being repeated tonight because of the loss of some transmissions earlier.
French Open Highlights is delayed.

ITV repeats Emmerdale after technical hitch

http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2013/jun/05/itv-repeats-emmerdale-technical-hitch?utm_source=feedbur...

Millions of cable and satellite TV viewers were unable to watch ITV on Tuesday night, prompting the broadcaster to schedule a hastily rearranged repeat of an hour-long Emmerdale.
The channel went missing from Sky and Virgin Media homes in areas around the country for two hours, beginning about 6.20pm.
ITV blamed "technical problems" at transmitter company Arqiva.
The broadcaster said different ITV regions were affected for differing lengths of time, with some, understood to include ITV London, entirely unaffected.
Viewers who lost their standard definition feed were still able to watch on ITV HD, however. Freeview homes were not affected.

I lost both on Freesat.
Strange thing, though, I was disappointed they repeated Emmerdale Grin
