NP

Are True Crime and the Sony Channel on Freesat?

If so, from 6/2/18 the Sony Channel becomes the Sony Crime Channel:

Apparently, the current True Crime will continue as Sony Crime 2.

Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

Technical changes that have been made suggest that the Sony Movie Channel may be coming to Freesat.

Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

Freesat viewers can enjoy the last week or so of the Sony Channel and the first week of the Sony Crime Channel before it's officially added to Freesat by adding it (and the +1) in non Freesat mode:

11.306 V SR 27500 FEC 5/6 DVB-S QPSK

The one labelled as 53385 is showing Sony Channel FTA

The one labelled as 53390 is showing Sony Channel +1 FTA

Talking Pictures hopes to be adding subtitles in March.

Highly unlikely due to broadcast rights issues that will ensure it has to remain encrypted. A few sports programmes do get broadcast on Quest, which Discovery networks use as an overflow channel when their isnt space on Eurosport 1 & 2.

You can get Eurosport by subscribing to TVPlayer plus & watching via the internet. Cheaper than Sky or Virgin.

Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

As per this post, it looks like Freesat is to obtain another HD channel sooner rather than later...

Virgin Media does not have the SD version. FreeSports said that virgin media want too much money to air it. They said a few months ago that they would likely launch on Freesat HD/Sky HD for a possible HD channel as it is much cheaper. They said that launching on Freeview HD isn't going to happen any time soon as it costs a fortune, $300k or so for Freeview slot + multimillion broadcast fees from Arquiva to broadcast it on their tv towers.

Would be very embarrassing for Virgin Media if the HD channel launches on FreeSat HD yet paying Virgin Media customers can't get it.

Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

I'm informed that Sony Crime 2 (crime fiction) has started on Freesat and that Sony Crime 1 (Crime non fiction) and Sony Crime +1 are to join next week.
