cnbcCNBC today confirmed that its signal is now available free-to-air for direct-to-home satellite users in the UK, increasing the channel’s distribution to more than 11 million UK households.
“Our decision to become a free-to-air channel in the UK is part of our strategy to aggressively grow our distribution across EMEA in 2010. Businesses receiving the channel and re-distributing it to multiple users are still required to have a viewing licence from CNBC.”

The channel could now join the Freesat platform, though this is pure speculation at present, for now Freesat users will have to add the channel maually. CNBC can be found on 11.261 horizontal.
Satellite viewers using other free-to-air receivers can also now view CNBC without having to point a dish at the Astra group of satellites positioned at 19.2° east, where the channels is already free-to-air.
