Latest update scan on all Freesat receivers

Note – cannot confirm if these channels apply to only certain Freesat receivers, or all at this stage.
ITV have confirmed plans to launch their on-demand ITV Player service on Freesat this Autumn.
The player, which allows you to catch up on ITV programmes, will be rolled out across all Freesat HD receivers via a software update; though it is expected that a beta test will take place on select brands first to ensure reliability.
ITV Player, which is funded by advertising revenue will also be made available on the Sony Playstation 3 by the end of the year, to sit along side the already available BBC iPlayer.
