Although the official Five Freesat launch date has passed, the original few Five channels on satellite remain encrypted, like Channel 4 when it originally went free-to-air. On Freesat receivers, Five will automatically appear on channel 105.
For those interested in tuning in this channel on a non Freesat receiver box, if you haven’t realy done so, carry out a channel rescan. Then have a look through through the end of the channel list, as the free-to-air Five channel is unnamed. Many receivers will show the channel as “Service 6335” or just “6335”, so if you can show the channel list in alphabetical order (e.g. on Manhattan receivers), just scroll through the group of unnamed channels for “6335”.
The Five website mentions that they are working on bringing Fiver and Five US to Freesat, which will be nice to have.
