Ch5 goes FTA on November 18th
Nov 5th, 2008, 4:24pm
 
Five is to launch on Freesat later this month, it has been announced.
 
The terrestrial channel has been notably absent from the service since its launch in May this year due to "rights issues". The broadcaster has now resolved the problems and will launch its flagship service on Freesat on Tuesday, November 18.
 
Freesat MD Emma Scott described Five, which will join the Freesat EPG on channel 105, as a "fantastic addition" to the service.
 
Charles Constable, Five's director of strategy, added: "I am delighted that Five will be available to Freesat viewers. Our launch will support three of Five's objectives: to be universally available throughout the UK, to let viewers watch our programmes on the platform of their choice, and to enable as many people as possible to watch Five free of charge."
 
Launch dates for Five's digital channels Five US and Fiver have yet to be confirmed.

@Cromwell, thanks for the links mate, there seems to be some conflict though, how many channels can you have on the Fortec, one says 2000 and the other says 10,000
