How to get Sky News on a Freesat box

Just a few button presses and you can have those channels that Sky hasn't yet allowed Freeview to give you... including Sky News

Just a few button presses and you can have those channels that
published on UK Free TV

On the set-top box:

Press [MENU] then [DOWN] twice, then [RIGHT], [DOWN] again to highlight "Manual Tune" and press [RIGHT].

On the menu scroll [DOWN] to "Transponder" and then use [DOWN] to find the value "12207V 27500 A".

Scroll down to the "Search" button and press [OK]. Tuning takes a few seconds to complete and press the [SAVE] button.

The set-top box is now in "non-Freesat mode". Press [EXIT] to see the TV picture, which will be Sky News, unless you have already added other channels, when it will be on the highest channel number.

To return to normal Freesat mode, press [MENU] again, and in the "Settings" menu, choose "STB Mode" and select "Freesat".



You can add any channel listed as free-to-air from this list: Eurobird 1 & Astra 2A/2B/2C/2D at 28.2E - LyngSat

Are there any specialist sports channels available on freesat via 'add non freesat channels.' If so could someone list the important manual tune numbers please. Any would be appreciated, thank you.

Becky: Have you advanced the volume control of your "Freesat boxes remote control" to around 80%+ or so minimum? as the volume control levels on any equipment connected into a TV have to be kept around this level or they will appear to be very quiet when compared to the TV's normal levels when not using external devices.

If though you have already done this, then have you double checked that the cable connectors (scart or HDMI) coupling the Freesat box into the TV are fully inserted into their respective sockets.

Should you have tried that mentioned and the situation has not changed, then please supply the model number of the Freesat box in question.

Becky: I take it that you are referring to a Freesat satellite box? and if so is it a Bush?

If though it is, then carry out a signal strength & quality check and report back on your findings as far as the levels being indicated are concerned, approximate percentage levels are suffice as its nearly impossible to lose programmes such as you have mentioned on a satellite device.

By the way, if it is a Bush then the signal strength indications are seen on the "information menu".

jb38: yes it's a bush freesat box

The signal & quality strength is 100% on the channels I have a signal with but it's 0% on all itv and e4 channels
