    I’m guessing Capital and Heart TV both appear on 507 and 508, will tidy up the music section somewhat removing the large gaps that have been present up until now. Up to now they go live on the 11th but have been delayed twice.

    Because they are on Sky perhaps?
    I just watch them on Freeview but if you can’t get that it’s hard luck.

    I wasn’t available another stream was available on freeview unless they’ve squeezed one out of more encoder efficiencies on one of the commercial Mux’s (with more compromsed to picture quality). All UKTV’s services are tied in to Sky subscription contracts so until these lapse, and if UKTV make a decision to, they won’t go FTA on satellite.

    One thing in Freesat’s favour with the launch of Astra 2E and 2F is it means the costs incurred going spotbeam from European widebeam will be significantly cheaper as each transponder can be switched as required by SES, up until now they’ve needed to use 2D/1N which required all the uplink re-engineering costs which are very expensive. It’s looking like all 2A and 1N transponders will migrate to 2F, 2B’s to 2E once it’s launched. UKTV’s two transponders are on 2A and 2B respectively.
