Paul: There is now full schedule EPG for the BBC Red Button streams on BSkyB.

Nothing's on:

Admittedly, this is just EPG for test streams, but the only events listed are of this type:

6802 Sat 23 Jun 01:00 - 07:00 : This is BBC Red Button 2
This is BBC Red Button 2

6811 Sat 23 Jun 01:00 - 07:00: This is BBC Red Button HD
This is BBC Red Button HD

Perhaps BBC and Channel Four are in competition to see who can waste the most transponder space.

It'll take some effort to beat Channel Four on that score, but you've got to hand it to BBC for trying.

Silvia Ashforth: GOD Channel changed transponder on Freesat on the 4th June.

I am puzzled why you don't have it because your Freesat device has either updated or it hasn't.

In either case you should have it because it is still running on its old transponder as well as the new.

Perhaps your Freesat device can't tune to the new transponder - in which case the following will be missing:

LCN service_name
150 Travel Channel
206 RT
694 GOD Channel
806 JML Direct

Silvia Ashforth: If your satellite receiver is just a free-to-air one rather than an actual Freesat branded one then you will find GOD Channel here:

Frequency = 11568 MHz
Polarisation = V
Symbol Rate = 22000
FEC = 5/6

It is also still running on its original transponder under the service name "52126":

Frequency = 11265 MHz
Polarisation = V
Symbol Rate = 27500
FEC = 2/3

Expect "52126" to be removed soon.
