I get 5 +1 5* and 5USA on my Freesat epg but on trying to view I get 'no signal' - is there anything I can do? I have never had to update new channels before - for instance Argos TV just appeared automatically

We are expecting that Five HD might follow soon but they have annouced they have decided not to take the spare HD channel on Freeview.
Do we think they will not do HD on Freesat and remain Sky Only?

David: It will depend on how much Sky are offering to keep channels exclusive to their platform.

So in Five HD case Sky paying them to be encrypted and on the Sky EPG only.
Who is paying Astra then in this case Sky or Five?

David: Sky uses their "marketing budget" to provide discounted access to their platform for HD channels, as being able to claim they are "exclusive" allows Sky to sell more Sky+HD boxes with their £10 a month additional fee.

Just like Rob and Janell above, I also have those extra channels, but 'no signal' ... I cannot see an answer on this site, so does anyone have any inspiration, please?
