Changes to Freesat

Feels good to read about the added channels again!

^_^ Thanks
4 added, 1 deleted and 1 changed

Added 516 NME TV 11642 V, 517 Bliss 11642 V, 818 Gems TV Extra 12523 V and 900 On Demand 11427 H (future freesat information service ?)

Deleted 811 Thane Direct

Confused about change I have 2 candidates 805 Gems TV 1 to Gems TV or 719 Capital 95.8 to Capital FM

Correction 811 had already gone looking for deletion
Can anyone find a deleted channel because I can't :confused:

The deletion was 811 Thane Direct, I forgot it left the epg for a while, then rejoined a short while ago and now it's gone again. :confused:
BBC News HD is there too, masquerading as an anonymous HD channel.

Retune Satellite channels (not Freesat)
Press OK to bring up channel list
Select HD channels

It's one of those. I used renumber to stick it on Freesat just before 101.

But where are all those other HD channels that are on Freeview???
OK, so now

BBC2 102 is BBC2 HD
BBC3 106 is BBC 3 HD
BBC4 107 is BBC4 HD
BBC News 200 is BBC News HD

Any other changes?
Yes. All the BBC 1 HD regional variants are now available as standard in the 990 range.
Good to see it published here before FreeSat could update their own website, they still have the December 2013 list and no notice of any changes!
Had me confused when I tried to switch to BBC2 HD ....
Yes. All the BBC 1 HD regional variants are now available as standard in the 990 range.

Does this mean we can watch the regional news programmes in HD now? I always forget to switch when the national news has ended and get the red screen and crazy music!
