Hi. I have a Goodmans Freesat HD box. I've noticed that I don't have channel 5 installed. I already did the re-scanning but still no success.  What's the reason for this?

Once Freesat has Channel 5 & also C4 HD, I think it'll help boost it's appeal.

and you also cant get stv or channel 3 in hd .if you stay in scotland unless you type a english post code then you can have itv or channel 3 . as stv is independient of itv. there is no mention of this in my instruction manual. and took a while to find this out by chance.

I think you'll find you can't really get ITV in HD either.........

yes you can get football and some films in hd. king kong this weekend is in hd . i know these are few and far between but it is getting better slowly. also you have to press red button on freesat controler when promted to on screen. to recieve hd content on itv.
