As yet the main C4 channel is FTV not FTA, you'll need to use the "other channels" entry.

makes it all the more sad really that as an irish viewer you cannot freely get rte tv3 and tg4 on satelitte yet you can get bbc1 2 3 4 utv itv 2 3 4 channel 4 more 4 e4 and a bucketload of others free.

makes skys charges look increasingly bad value for money too. half their varietly channels are now fta.

Thanks MYOB not too well up on this stuff. Is it a fair bet it will go FTA soon and be available on the EPG also are channel 5 likely to do the same.Also when I have the UK EPG should channel 4 and 5 not be on them even though I wouldn't be able to view them.

It sounds like Sky have priced themselves out of the market. They charge millions for EPG which costs them nothing. It seems that ITV/BBC/C4 won't pay for any extra Freesat channels to be put on Sky EPG.

The WHOLE freesat financing by BBC/ITV is a fraction of what either pays to Sky for EPG placement. I'd guess when Freesat reaches critical mass, If Sky wants any of BBC, ITV or C4 on EPG they will have to pay the Broadcasters, like Sky does already for Irish EPG

Interestingly Channel 4, Channel 4+1 and E4 are still encrypted on the EPG. The others are FTA.

I'm watching E4, E4+1, More4, More+1 on a Sky digibox sans viewing card (generic London EPG).
