Channel Five, Channel 5 +1, 5 USA and 5* to join freesat, and be free to air in Gandia

Channel 5 have announced that Channel 5 +1, 5 USA and 5* (plus their +1 timeshift channels) will all be joining the Freesat platform in December.

Channel 5+1 will launch on Freesat on EPG channel number 128 on Tuesday 6th December.
Presumably it will alos launch on the Sky EPG.

5* and 5 USA, as well as their relative +1 services, will also launch on Freesat on Thursday 8th December. The relevent Freesat EPG channel numbers wil be as follows:

129: 5 USA
130: 5 USA +1
131: 5*
132: 5* +1

So it looks like the fives will be available free to air, with no sky card on a small dish for the foreseeable future. So that means ITV1, C4 and Channel Fives will be available on a small 80-cm satellite dish in Gandia

No mention of Five HD joining Freesat soon.
