Channel Worth Watching In Non-Freesat Mode

Taken from a post on DigitalSpy (thanks jzee!), we thought it might be a good idea publishing here to; showcase some of the many channels available on your Freesat box via the ‘non-Freesat’ mode. These channels are FTA (free-to-air) but have so far decided not to join the Freesat EPG (electronic programme guide) for full 7 day listings and an assigned channel number.

Just switch your Freesat receiver over to ‘non-Freesat’ mode, carry out a scan, and you’ll find hundreds of channels including these worth a look. Hopefully one day they will find themselves on the Freesat EPG, but that is down to the broadcaster and whether they are willing to pay the fee for inclusion.
