    The update has left me with access at best to one channel at a time.If I get, say, BBC 1, I cannot change successfully to any other channel. I get a blank screen or a message saying the service (Channel 4 for example ) is not available. Is this because the update has not completed? Please advise.

    I am in East Sussex if location has any relevance.

    Presumably you mean when recording? In which case, it sounds like only one of your tuners is working, so check both cables from the satellite dish are correctly installed. It is incredibly unlikely, if not impossible that a channel update would cause such an issue.

    No, it is not while recording; just simply turning on and wishing to view and change channels in the normal way.

    I think there’s also been some transponder changes elsewhere today (UMP Movies and the religious channels too).

    You know the reasons why these channels aren’t available as we’ve told you probably a hundred times!

    Its good to see new channels launch on the service but I do feel when it comes to new channels we freesat viewers are being overlooked I see no reason why hd channels like Itv2hd Itv3hd Itv4hd Channel5hd and E4hd couldn’t join the service maybe they’re caught up in a deal with sky Boo!

    They get money from Sly that’s why not. Freesat charge to get on it’s EPG. and only have 2 million boxes/tv sold according to the last box numbers sold a year ago that is.You do the math.

    Not much on here lately, Would be nice to know accurately how Freesat are doing. As for the new channel, not my cup of tea I’m afraid, but it all helps the platform. I won’t be venturing into Freesat + until the prices come down on the boxes & better quality channels which will all come eventually, fingers crossed. I see all Freesat + ads have disappeared, you really need to keep at if you want to bring people over, I know it cost money, but it’s the only way forward. Perhaps Freesat could send out car advertising banners to all the people on here who put there loyalty, there time & comments on the forum.

    The ITV 2 3 4 HD channels were launched to provide an extra income stream for ITV from the share of the subscription money they get from Sky. The chances of them going fta any time soon is remote in the current economic climate
