Free-To-Air Tuning Guide

SKY / SKY+ STANDARD DEFINITION SET-TOP BOXES
To add new channels to your "Other Channels" section on your standard Sky or Sky+ Digibox then simply do the following....

· Press the "SERVICES" button (near the top of the remote).
· Highlight "SYSTEM SET-UP", press "SELECT" and then scroll down to "ADD CHANNELS" and press "SELECT".
· In the appropriate fields enter the information required. To move through the fields simply press the "UP ARROW" and "DOWN ARROW" keys.

· In the FREQUENCY field enter the 5 digit code, (it starts with either 10, 11 or 12 in the table below). Don't worry about the full stop in the frequencies in the table below, you do not have to enter them on Sky set-top boxes.

· The next three fields are toggle fields, i.e. you use the "LEFT ARROW" and "RIGHT ARROW" keys to change the values.

Polarisation - either H or V
Symbol Rate - either 22000 or 27500
FEC - either 2/3, 5/6 or 7/8

· Once you have entered all the required information, scroll down to "FIND CHANNEL" and press "SELECT" to scan for the channels and in a few moments it should pop up, along with other channels on the same frequency.

· Use the "YELLOW" button to place a tick beside each channel you find and wish to store and when you've finished ticking press "SELECT". These channels will now be stored in your "OTHER CHANNELS" menu. (Press "SERVICES" then highlight the "OTHER CHANNELS" option and press "SELECT").

SKY+ HD SET-TOP BOXES
To add new channels to your "Other Channels" section on your Sky+HD Digibox then simply do the following....

· Press the "SERVICES" button on your remote and then keep pressing the "LEFT ARROW" until you see "OPTIONS" highlighted.

· Now press the "DOWN ARROW" on your remote and on the middle menu keep pressing the "LEFT ARROW" until you see "ADD CHANNELS" highlighted.

· Now, press the "DOWN ARROW" again and a few boxes will show up at the bottom which you have to enter details into.

· In the appropriate fields enter the information required. To move through the fields simply press the "UP ARROW" and "DOWN ARROW" keys.

· In the FREQUENCY field enter the 5 digit code, (it starts with either 10, 11 or 12 in the table below). Don't worry about the full stop in the frequencies in the table below, you do not have to enter them on any Sky / Sky+ / Sky+HD set-top boxes.

· The next three fields are toggle fields, i.e. you use the "LEFT ARROW" and "RIGHT ARROW" keys to change the values.

Polarisation - either H or V
Symbol Rate - either 22000 or 27500 **
FEC - either 2/3, 5/6 or 7/8

** NOTE - Some HD channels use a symbol rate of 23000 or 29500 but these are not options on a Sky+HD receiver due to Sky's software restrictions and so these channels cannot be tuned in using a Sky+HD receiver

Once you have entered all the required information, press "YELLOW" to scan for the channels and in a few moments it should pop up, along with any other channels on the same frequency.

· Use the "YELLOW" button to place a tick beside each channel you find and wish to store and when you've finished ticking press "SELECT". These channels will now be stored in your "OTHER CHANNELS" menu. To get to the list of other channels, press "SERVICES" then press the "DOWN ARROW" then keep pressing the "RIGHT ARROW" until you see the "OTHER CHANNELS" option highlighted, then press "DOWN ARROW" again. Highlight the channel you wish to view, then press "SELECT" to preview and "SELECT" again to make it full screen.

SET-TOP BOXES BY OTHER MANUFACTURERS
There are many non-Sky FTA satellite receivers available out there, you will have to consult your user manual for how to scan for new channels as each box has different menu systems and options.

===================================================================================================

So, the following channels are now available via satellite FTA (Free To Air), meaning no card is required if you are using a Sky branded set top box or the services can be picked up with any satellite receiver, just tune it in and you can watch away.

All channels listed are the NI/UK variants which means there are NO blocked programmes or films, everything is unrestricted!
