More on Freesat

I noticed that 5+1 became active yesterday and, looking further, found that 5*, 5*+1, 5USA and 5USA+1 are now available.
Freeview box has always had 5* & 5USA - rescanned and now has 5+1 but not 5*+1 & 5USA+1.

You may also have noticed that 4HD reception improved a few days ago.
All to do with switching channels around as Astra 1N comes into service.  Wink
If you watched the recent BBC program about how to build a satellite it was the one launched at the end after a "false start" in August.
(Though the program actually showed construction phases of several different satellites without detailed comment, making it look as if it was the same one)

Re: More on Freesat

How are you getting 5HD on Freesat as it doesn't show on my Freesat HD box?
TV does have built in Freeview HD tuner but never use it as only use Freeview for recording using Humax, non HD, recorder.
