I would feel more excited about that if (a) they weren't already on Freeview, and (b) I actually watched either of them.

Hello Mike ...yes i know the new channels are on Freeview ...But not everyone can receive Freeview (as i live in Munich! ) ...so its great news the few channels that are on freeview, but missing from Freesat are now being being added !

It's a strange setup really. You would think someone would think about this in a grown up manner, but it has ever been so. For ages, we couldn't get 5 HD on Freeview, now we can.

I blame it all on Mudrock.

Yes... It was always a bit strange...that some channels were free to air on Freeview..but ...behind a pay wall on Satellite / Sky......

I think Sky are now being squeezed a bit ...with the high price of football rights ...So they don't want to subsidise and save money ..to the lesser channels to keep them in the Sky family anymore........
