Viewers in the Scottish part of the ITV Border region will be able access their regional version of the channel on Sky and Freesat from mid-March.
ITV Border Scotland was relaunched in January 2014, but until now has only been available on Freeview. It contains additional opt-outs from the main ITV schedule, in order to meet ITV’s new licence requirements for the region.
On the 16th March 2015, satellite viewers in the area will be switched from the existing Border England service to Border Scotland on Sky and Freesat channel 103.
Test transmissions are already underway on satellite in preparation for the launch on Freesat and Sky.
ITV Viewer Services have warned affected viewers about scheduled recordings on ITV, saying:
“Sky and Freesat viewers should check that any future recordings they have scheduled after 16 March are present in their planner.”
