Channel 5 frequency changes Nov 2022

Channel 5 frequency changes Nov 2022

It appears that Channel 5 will soon be changing frequencies, if not today, then sometime this week.

And this will also affect the other channels it operates as well : Channel 5+1, 5USA, 5USA+1, 5Star, 5Star +1, 5Select, 5 Action.

Frequency changes should not really affect viewers with Freesat set top boxes or Sky Digiboxes, as these changes will happen automatically.

But for users using "generic" satellite receivers, or TVs with built in satellite receivers, you will need to perform a manual scan for the channels on their new frequencies.

Here are the frequency details :

The BBC have announced plans to close their Standard Definition (SD) channels on satellite during 2023.

This will mean that the BBC channels will only be available in High Definition (HD) via satellite.

Users with a Freesat HD or Sky HD or Sky+HD set top box should not be affected, unless you watch BBC SD channels if you cannot receive BBC HD channels.

But users with older Freesat SD and Sky digiboxes will begin to lose services.
