Freesports would be a good candidate for this one, as it would increase their coverage significantly. Depends whether they want to give up their HD mux capacilty or not.

Well, they are due to go HD soon, but they did say that it would be too expensive on Freeview, so who knows?

As time goes by the temporary mux that they are on will be closed, so they will have to do something in the same way that Talking Pictures did. I suspect that because of this the cost of the permanent muxes will increase, so now would be a good time to do it if they can afford it.

Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

Another as yet unamed HD channel is due to join soon. My thoughts are:

CNN International, Al Jazeera, and Bloomberg already broadcast FTA in HD, so must be the most likely options.

Iran International and Record TV also broadcast FTA in HD, so can't be discounted.

Insight appear to be keen to increase their presence as they are in discussions with Virgin Media to carry them. Getting onto Freesat would be much easier, so I certainly wouldn't rule them out.

Maybe Sky are to finally make Sky News HD available?

QUEST HD will shortly start on EPG no 172.

Bloomberg TV HD was the mystery channel, it will shortly start on EPG no 216.

Speculation that GOLD SD may be going FTA after it is said that it will be removed from Now TV in September.

If this comes to fruition, i'd expect it to be carried on Freesat along with all the other UKTV FTA channels.
