    If what is to be believed is right with EB1 to 1N and 2F timings there’s going to be a mass channel migration happening over the next few weeks.

    I should add further that this is in effect down to SES gaining rights to the current Eutelsat spectrum carrying most EB1 services.

    I’m very surprised why Sky didn’t change pick tv assuming Challenge TV is on a localised beam of astra 1n now!

    It’s not on a spotbeam but a widebeam transponder. The change is part of the forthcoming Eutelsat to Astra 2F migration.

    Manhattan HD-S2 now dearer than the HD-S which is still available. Weird world.

    Where is the discontinued HD-S cheaper than the HD-S2?

    I’m missing the point, the HD-S2 is still available for less than the HD-S and is newer technology, albeit with no second scart. The HD-S is still available indeed, and the price between them isn’t much, but the HD-S2 was always promoted at an unachievable RRP though there have been stock shortages, so expect to see the majors bring that price back down again; probably next week.

    I’ve removed your link sorry, no links to either of the “x direct” companies (same company); they are constantly complained about, absolutely no communications so you have to cross your fingers that your purchase suffers no faults. 69% feedback on Play and lots of negatives on ebay hidden within the positives.

    Sorry no problemo. Just saying the HD-S is a better buy imho (I own 2) HD-S has 8 favourites lists not to mention a nice grey fold down flap as opposed to the HD-S2 which has no fold down flap and a built in power supply that cannot easily be replaced unlike the plug PS on the HD-S.

    Will all the pan-european free-to-air channel like True Movies/Movies4Men etc go UK spotbeam only with a move to Astra 2F or will they stay pan-european on the Pan-Euro beam of Astra 2F?

    As yet we don’t know but one thing for sure is there’ll be a lot of EPG updates over the next few days. Those at ‘Freesat Towers’ will be busy with the work required – this then needs to happen again as most, if not all, affected EB1 TP’s are currently dual illuminated now. About half are temporarily on 2F spot beams in the ‘C’ band so will be interesting to see how many expats report loss of reception on these.

    For info too: Astra 2E was successfully launched on Sunday night, has been delivered to GTO before 0800 Monday morning and is awaiting circularisation and early life testing. I estimate it will be about two Months from now before she takes service, this will affect people abroad in a big way as all the existing 1N UK spot transponders will migrate to 2E (on a much tighter spotbeam than is presently). Most expat viewers have had a blessing in disguise as 1N’s spot beam was much looser than 2D, now 2E and 2F’s will be tighter than both.

    Eutelsat are losing 500MHz of their current 750MHz of spectrum. Only channels on 11200-11450 will stay on the Eutelsat widebeam. Everything from 11450-11700 & 12500-12750 will move to Astra 2F.

    The Trues & Movie4s will stay on the 28.5E widebeam for the time being.

    With the dual illumination of the Eut frequencies onto SES craft we have been doing some research around European members of the satellites.co.uk forum. Half of the frequencies dual illuminated are on the Astra 2F uk spotbeam, and I think its a reasonable guess most if not all the “Eutelsat blocks” of frequencies will end up on the 2F spot. (This will allow these frequencies to be reused for the new 2E Middle Eastern beam)

    Now SES are completely reorganising the frequency allocations – its not a straight swap from Eutelsat to SES.

    Expats will soon find out how bad things are going to be in their location when the Sky & Freesat epgs are remapped to the dual illuminated frequencies on 1N 2F & 2A & away from Eut 28A – which will be in the next couple of days.

    Then everything gets remapped again next week as SES fire up 2F properly and set up the new frequency plan with all dual frequencies on their new homes.

    It would be nice to have a list of what’s going onto Astra 2 UK/Euro spotbeam and what’s staying on Eutelsat EB1. This would be helpful to expats so we know what’s available still across Europe on EB1 fixed and Europewide beams/Astra 2 Pan-Euro beam and what will be limited to the UK and parts of Europe on the UK spotbeam on Astra 2.

    Which of those channels will be staying Europewide and which will be on UK spotbeam only? Many of these channels have had no copyright or broadcasting rights issues and there hasn’t been any ruckus by the programme suppliers or broadcasters to complain about Europewide free-to-air reception of those services.
