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.

For tuning instructions, please see below the table.

All channels listed are the UK versions which means there are NO blocked programmes, sporting events or films!
