I do not believe it - Just this very week added Sky News to my Freesat Channel list using the patched software for Humax HDR!

Ah, well, 202 sounds better than 5001.

Errm, they have been On Air for ages and ages - this is about them going on the Freesat EPG.

It hasn't happened yet - usually EPG Updates take place between 11.00 and 12.00 GMT.

Morning, peeps. You may have heard Sky News, Challenge TV and Pick TV are all coming to freesat later today. All freesat products will automatically update, but some won't until the middle of the night.

OK. I ddidn't have them on my system.
Pick / Sky News - 12207V here I get Sky Active. I have got this before and always has puzzled me. Multi screen, four in my case. How do you watch this?. With a special receiver? How do you move from screen to screen.

If one can call a BSkyB box "special", then yes.

But this is the Freesat Forum and Freesat boxes cannot deal with Sky Active.

Available on EPG as of 11.41 GMT.

May need a Freesat Tune on some boxes.

Otherwise, just wait for Housekeeping.

The Sky boxes are in the garage, can not be bothered with them. Much prefer my FTA.

I agree with juan69, fta receivers are less sensitive.

Depends on the receiver - many of our members swear by the Dr HD F15 for sensitivity, and my Skybox F3 isnt too bad either.
