Five USA on Humax Foxsat

  jorf 16:30 15 Oct 2009

Is it possible to get Five USA chanel on a humax foxsat freesat recorder?

I had a sky box with no subscription and miss some of my favourite programs.
Thank you

So Yes

I know it is on freeview but we cannot get freeview here until 2011. Is it available on freesat?

Freesat is a sattellite download of the full Freeview list.
You comment about not getting Freeview refers to terrestrial transmissions.
Another thing all together.

Google Freesat.
Consult local dealer

Thank you Jack, I googled freesat and five USA is not listed even though you get it on sky freesat. I just do not know if the humax can receive it. If it can how.

Freesat is NOT a satellite download of the "full Freeview list"...:-)


Five USA doesn't appear on the Freesat list of channels at present:

No doubt both it and Fiver will be included ere long.

If you have an integrated TV or Freeview set top box you can watch Five USA that way.

Thanks for your help, there is no freeview in this area so I will have to wait until 2011 then get a freeview box, unless they add the chanels to freesat.
