Join Freesat


Dec 14 2010

ITV1+1 is now testing FTA (free-to-air), which means a launch is imminent; 11th January 2011 to be precise according to our source inside the UK broadcaster.

It seems a number of frequencies are being used to test at present, which are the regional variants needed to match those available on ITV1.

ITV1+1 is a time-shift version of ITV1, allowing viewers the chance to catch any missed programmes an hour later. The channel had planned to launch in October 2009, but it was put on hold until now.

If you want to check out the test broadcasts, simply change your settings to ‘non-freesat’ mode and search frequency 10891 22000 H (named 10145).

We are expecting ITV1+1 to fit nicely in channel slot 112 when launched.

Freesat PollDo you see a benefit in +1 (time-shift) channels?

    I guess only the SD version and not ITV 1 HD +1?

    If that is the case, it is still pretty useless to me as I really want to see the HD variation on a big telly.

    lot of the content gets repeated (if not later in teh week on the same channel) on ITV2, etc… which in turn gets repeated on ITV2+1, etc….

    rather have new channels, than +1 channels.

    I personally find +1’s very useful as in effect it can give you two versions of the same channel if you are simply channel-hopping to find something interesting to watch. I watch C4+1 pretty frequently if there’s something on more interesting an hour earlier.

      Quote

  11. Russ Dring Says:

    It is a really good idea to time-shift however, it would be much better to use one of the frequencies to transmit the correct regional varient of our local ITV 1, which is Anglia West, not Anglia East, so that we are able to get more “local “news to match the terrestrial output.

    I used to be very scathing about the point of +1 channels, and moaned about how they were a total waste of bandwidth. Until I started to use them. Now I find them most useful.

    Does anyone really look at the +1 channels. I have never spoken to anyone that has used them.
    It would be better if the bandwidth was used for new channels especially as it was reported a while ago that there was no room for C4 HD on Freesat. Delete all the +1 channels and there would more than adequate bands available.

    AnyChannel +1? – what an utter and total waste

    @JayW

    You must not speak to many television watchers as +1 channels are very popular. The key benefits are suiting more viewers availability, and also those that record a lot of programmes at the same time, as timeshift channels at least give you that ability to delay recording an hour so you can get everything you want on today’s twin tuner limiting PVR’s.

    It has never been the case that bandwidth is the cause for C4 HD not being on Freesat, nor is it likely that even if space was available, that those broadcasters leasing it would simply give/sell it to a rival broadcaster to allow them more exposure.

    Really good to have ITV+1 often on my humax HDR i get a clash often at 21:00 when i want to be able to record 2 or 3 programmes. I would prefer ITV HD +1 but this is a start. The late 2010 has brought some good additions to Freesat, now lets hope early 2011 brings us some goodies too – ITV Player maybe???

      Quote

  25. Neil Says:

    So far only broadcasters with single digit percentage reaches have a +1 timeshift variant. ITV (with it’s 20% UK broadcasting share) will, I guess, do very well out of the +1 and could easily see it gaining high viewing figures during peak time viewing for those wanting to watch episodes of Coronation St etc they missed due to arriving home late or during other programme clashes.

    Whist ITV has shown lots of cheap low-rate programmes in the past they are working on improving their output with a few more documentaries and factual programmes now making their way on to schedules. Either way it’s a popular channel, just look at the 20m+ viewers who tuned in for the final of the X Factor! ITV1+1 will also allow ITV to sell advertising at a premium based on extra viewing figures combined.

    There’s simply no bandwidth to start doing HD+1 variants, even Sky don’t do those!

    Now that ITV 1 abandon proper programmes around midnight with the ‘Zone’ I can see ITV 1 +1 giving us an extra hour of worthwhile TV.

    Come to think about it I do not watch much of ITV 1’s output as I tend to prefer the BBC and Channel 4. I do watch ITV 3 and 4 (and the +1 variants) on a regular basis.

      Quote

  29. Neil Says:

    Kevin, I agree that ‘The Zone’ isn’t exactly riveting but there are a lot of things people will watch during peak time viewing on it’s new +1. For me personally I tend to watch more Channel 4 but do dip in and out of ITV for certain shows if I’m at home.

    Depending on what Richard Desmond decides to do in regards Channel 5’s future strategy they may be next to look at a +1 variant too.

    I take it your a reality fan then or something. My point is, surley there is some brains at ITV who can put there heads together and spend there money on something different now & then and not just depend on rip off phone in reality shows and soaps to pull in an audience, GIVE PEOPLE CHOICE Thats all we ask. Roll on Doc Martin, if it comes. Look at what happen to Primeval, as far as I remember it was very good viewing and what did ITV do, scraped it because it was to exspensive to make. I know you can’t please everyone, but at least try some new avenue & meet in the middle. I don’t watch much TV because running my website takes up most of my time and I make effort to do as much as I can to keep everyone happy with something new & different, and it works.

    Tony you are your right, just switch over channels.

    I agree that +1 channels are very usefull, but on a limited space platform like Freeview, it is more than a waste of space, but on Freesat, you don’t have that very tight amount of space to fit the channels into, ive been watching the ITV1+1 Central channel in Non-Freesat Mode for around 10 days now or so, and im glad that ITV have got this going finally, it will be a very good channel to have.
    As for a few comments around what ITV chucks out, yes, at times, ITV1 is pox, but they do have a few gems worth watching, like the Frost ive got on now, gutted that its not in HD as some of the trailers have said, but oh’well, not to bad in upscaled HD!
    Admin, why would ITV1HD not be moved further up the EPG instead of after ITV4+1? its a little odd dont you think?!!

    I’d agree it would make more sense for ITV1HD to be at channel position 111, and then ITV1+1 at 112, followed by the rest, but we don’t know whether any slots have been allocated and paid for by the broadcasters. We shall see, there might be a shuffle around come launch date.

      Quote

  34. Neil Says:

    I guess Freesat have reserved slots for future broadcasters although I would have thought LCN 112 would have been alloted to ITV1HD back in April, this will probably be now used for ITV1+1 in Jan. I guess Freesat have plans for a channel to eventually occupy LCN 111 (C4HD maybe?) and think they’ve done the best thing holding back slots to keep the EPG uniform in fashion, unlike the mess Sky’s has become!

    #40 – Jon; C4HD WILL happen, it’s just a case of when. I’m very confident there will be positive movement on this in the new year, we don’t know what the position is with the BBC bandwidth on offer but I’m sure that if that is going to come off then it will appear sooner rather than later.

    I really want to see C4HD too but as most others say, it’s just a case of sitting and waiting. I’m also confident that longer term Freesat has capacity for far more HD services than Freeview and await the day when everyone starts moaning that some HD services available FTA via Satellite aren’t on Freeview!

  44. mediaman Says:

    There should be plenty of room for Channel 4 HD if the rumours about BBC3 and 4 that will be plastered in the papers today are true. Both are facing the axe by the BBC Trust. Personally I think a merger between the 2 is more likely. Still ITV +1 and STV +1 will be a welcome addition on Freesat a bit of a waste on Freeview what with the lack of space and of course STV 2 is rumoured for Scotland next year I just wish they would get STV HD on Freesat as my box can’t pick it up in Non Freesat. Freesat’s getting better and better and next year should be a good year for all.

    Merry Christmas all (I know it’s a bit early but I am officially on holiday now)

      Quote

  45. Jon Says:

    It doesn’t matter how much extra room there is for C4HD, they just don’t seem to be interested in joining Freesat.

    When Freesat were previously asked if C4HD would ever join and all you got was “We are working on bringing extra HD channels, watch this space” or Emma Scott in April this year on this site “I’m confident that there will be positive news on the HD front soon” and then a bit later in the interview “we will have as many HD channels as Freeview once 4HD joins”. Again giving the impression the C4HD is coming soon. 8 months later nothing.

    Now when asked about C4HD Freesat have changed their line, its “we’d love C4 HD to join the line-up alongside our 3 brilliant HD channels, and we’ll keep encouraging them! Best to ask C4.” I think this subtle change speaks volumes. Especially when they give the same answer for when Dave will be coming.

      Quote

  46. Mediaman Says:

    Dave would never be on Freesat for a number of reasons and the channel itself may not be on Freeview in the near future as many people within the media are suggesting they are looking for an encryption deal with SKY. Dave to me is nothing but repeats of Top Gear abd heavily censored programming most of which is available uncut on the BBC with the odd cheap new programmes thrown in. Apart from the 3 part red dwarf episode there is nothing on there you can’t get elsewhere. Many like the channel but I for one won’t miss it.

      Quote

  47. Jon Says:

    Yeah i know it’s probably never coming but Freesat gave the same answer for C4HD as Dave so I reckon C4HD is the same.

    All i want for my HD TV viewing is the main terrestrial channels, I think it’s shocking that in order to get these I have to pay Sky or Virgin.

    ITV are hardly going to give up frequency space on 2D to a rival broadcaster; it is all broadcasters responsibility to ensure they have leased enough space from SES; of which Five can be blamed for missing a number of opportunities in the past. It has nothing to do with Freesat space, everyone is entitled to join Freesat, as they are only buying a EPG channel slot.

    Dave is subscription only on satellite via Sky, so couldn’t be available on Freesat; not as an FTA service anyway.

    http://www.newstatesman.com/broadcast/2010/12/cable-company-british-uktv

    Scripps own Food Network which is available on Freesat so maybe with a (half) change of senior ownership this could influence the availability of Dave on satellite platforms once their current encryption deal ends with Sky.

    Personally I don’t know what all the fuss is about with Dave. It’s a repeats channel for which I find quite boring when I’ve watched it as it shows the same shows over and over. If you like QI and Top Gear it’s great but not my cup of tea really….!

    UTV +1 now has stopped showing the real time UTV – replaced by UTV testcard … maybe there’s hope for UTV +1 after all …

    +1 makes a lot more sense and is more helpful for more people than jumping on the HD / 3D hype waggon – and its commercialy sane

    John… best thing to do if you want ITV1+1 is to put in an English postcode, then use customise channels to get BBC1 NI and BBC2 NI back on 101 and 102. That’ll also give you ITV1 HD if you want it. Sounds like UTV are as much fun as STV!

    STV have made a great deal with ITV and the STV1 +1 channel will go ahead officially and hopefully the HD channel as well. They have also gained extra transponder space. On a seperate issue it looks like ITV4+1 could be leaving SKY and remaining on freesat the reason from sources could be the launch of the electric sofa channels.

    If STV is so bad why did it’s +1 channel yesterday have Star Wars The Phantom on when ITV were not aloud to show it for legal reasons. Hopefully the legal issues with ITV’s programming will be sorted out before launch.

    website seems not online yet, no info about +1 either

    maybe the card is meant for tuesday night

    seems at least ulster viewers should be able to get U.tv +1 in non freesat mode

    stv shows “This is stv +1″ loop

    background IDs haven’t been changed yet (still 10….)

    testing in non freesat seems to be over – all +1 have switched to cards or loops (stv and utv seem to show a somewhat similar schedule slightly diferent to Itvs)

    lets see when & which are switched on their respective freesat IDs – all epg are running fro some time – even UTV +1 always showing the +1 schedule – great addiition for freesat users and a good start for 2011

    (then tomorrow lets get back to moaning and asking for more programs including dave and sky news and best in HD and 3D all at once and today of course )

    ITV1+1 is very useful, the only problem I have with a Bush HD box is it asks for a postcode, then provides Central TV and not HTV West. with no way to edit to find the right ITV all very odd, I’m all for more +1 ‘s though and many more HD channels
