Yup reports on the DS forum concur so Ive updated the table in post #1.

A shame we cant go completely the other way, regardless of the EU stuff.

Surely ways can be found to derive revenue from around the entire Continent to more than cover Rights matters and leave money over to improve programming.

The whole concept of restricting viewing is a nonsense, IMHO.

All UK PSBs are now only viewable on UK spots.

Funny thing is the Irish PSBs have just gone other other way and are all available on Europe beams now (but still encrypted) after many years on the UK spot.

As it's already on a spot beam that won't really help those outside the normal viewing area.

Inside information?
Nope - one of the reliable lads on the DS forum has spotted that the Freesat data pid has been added to the C5HD transmission. Ergo its going on Freesat . :)

Daystar HD also has the fs data pid so that'll be a second new fta HD service

So, that would be the same one which has been hanging around on 10964 for a few months, which still has NDS encryption?

4Music was reported as testing fta for a few hours earlier today so there is an outside chance that one will be going fta in the not too distant future.

A long time since the last update:

ITV Encore is closing at the end of April 18 so has been removed from the list.

UTV +1 will be launching in the near future

UTV Ireland was renamed 3e a while back.

3e is no more - its been taken over by Virgin Media & rebranded. As its no longer part of any PSB operation Ive removed its entries from the table.
