Does it exist yet? I have heard that the Betis v Chelsea game may be on it Tuesday. Are there any transponder settings etc?

10758V 22000 5/6. Only active after 1800uk time, and carrying Men & Motors with ITV 4 epg.

NOTE launch likely delayed a week until the 7th October due to a dispute with Sky....

Confused on this one. Official site says:

"ITV4 launches Tuesday 1st November on Freeview and NTL - live and exclusive UEFA Champions League - ITV4 will broadcast daily from 6pm onwards"

Implies that ITV4 will not be on satellite - so where does the 10758V 22000 5/6 come into it?

Then Men & Motors stream currently on 10758V is the test transmission for ITV4. Its already carrying epg info for it.

ITV 4 may well launch onto this frequency on schedule whatever happens with the epg slot so you can watch the channel via add channels. No promises though!

UPDATE ----->> Media 24-7 have now confirmed the Sky launch will be 7th November. (and will be fta):

"ITV has confirmed that its new men's targeted channel will launch on Sky Digital on 7th November 2005.

An ITV spokeswoman confirmed that the channel will not be launching on the 1st November - this is the official launch date of the channel.

"The official launch date for ITV4 on Sky is Monday 7th November. Sky is not expected to carry ITV4 from launch."

The spokeswoman also confirmed the channel will not require any subscription and will be free for all:

"The channel is free-to-air on digital satellite and is not part of any subscription package."

ITV4 will be available on EPG 120.

ITV4 launches on Freeview and ntl on Tuesday 1st November"

It shouldnt do - ITV said M&M was doing better since the dropped the girlie late night programming. The 10758 stream is just a handy transponder stream test.

Getting back to the original question.

The official ITV listings are showing Real Betis v Chelsea (Kick-off 7.45pm) for next Tuesday (1st November) on ITV4 only (NB - definitely not on ITV2).

Up to now the Champions League 2nd matches have been on ITV2 and therefore available on satellite as well as Freeview.

Expect lots of fuss about this next Tuesday when people realise they can't get this match on their Sky box.

I wonder will it just not be available via the Sky EPG, but can be tuned in via other channels, or on a FTA reveiver?

I have an Irish subscription and a English FTV card.

I will be able to get ITV4 on one of these Tuesday, won't I?

No. Although ITV 4 will be fta, the Sky launch has been put back a week until the 7th. Its unknown at the time being as to if ITV4 will be available through "Other Channels" for the first week

That's funny. I thought Rolfy had replied to my last post.

So it's a case of - wait until the 1st then try it out. I already have the settings done, but on both cards it says "no listings available".

Just checked it. I get M&M. This will change to ITV4 at some point then? Hopefully Tuesday for the Chelsea game. :)
