UKTV channels coming to Freesat?

uktv-blueFreesat programme data has now appeared alongside the new streams for Drama, Really and Yesterday, as part of the move of UKTV channels on satellite to a new transponder.
The data streams show that Drama has been assigned Freesat channel 162, Yesterday channel 163 and Really channel 164. All channels are still encrypted at present
There is currently no Freesat EPG data associated with Dave. This is usually the first sign of the channels being made available on Freesat and they usually go free-to-air a short period before being added to the Freesat platform.

The move to free-to-air has not yet been announced by UKTV or Freesat. The move will enable those not currently able to view UKTV’s free-to-air channels via Freeview to watch them for the first time on Freesat.

The encrypted channels can be found on:
12.129 Vertical
Symbol Rate: 22000,
FEC: 2/3
DVB-S, QPSK
